One of our all-time favourite colour combinations is blush pink and grey.

With no signs of this on-trend colour palette slowing down, we’ve curated 5 different ways to pull off a blush pink and grey living room.

1. Add natural elements

This colour palette lends itself well to the Scandinavian style, and within this, natural elements.

Natural elements will work to bring the space together, elevating the space and enhancing the pink and grey tones. So definitely think about adding timber, stone, brick and even indoor plants!

2. Inject a rich tone

Adding a rich tone, like deep mauve, can take this look from pretty and romantic into a more sophisticated direction.

You may have heard us talk about the 60-30-10 ration before — it’s an easy rule to follow when bringing colour into your home, making 60% of the space one colour, 30% another colour and 10% an accent colour.

In this living room, the 10% accent is the black, the 30% is a light-grey and the 60% is a barely-there-blush-pink. The addition of black really makes the colour palette pop.

3. Block colours

Another way to interpret this trend in a more design forward way is to use the colours in blocks. As we see in the below images, this provides a real contemporary, luxe touch to the space.

Think every large element — the walls, couch, carpet, coffee table — is it’s own colour. This creates a striking look!

This colour palette will make it super easy to achieve the colour block look, so why not give it a try?

4. Metallics

Blush pink and grey work well with a range of metallic accents such as gold, copper and brass.

Consider making the 10% accent a metallic. For example, consider adding a copper lamp, coffee table and accessories on the console bring the space together.

Brass has taken over copper as the top trending metallic but feel free to break away from trends and go with what you love most!

5. Barely-there-blush-pink with timber

Timber is an excellent accent to pink. Combine that with soft grey tones and you really have a winner.

  1. The blush pink rug is indeed gorgeous! Among the designs, my best pick is the last one. Everything looks gorgeous actually but that last design is so me. It appeals to me more than the first five designs.

    • Oh thanks for sharing the link to Madeleine’s home Sarah! That blush pink entryway with gallery wall is so gorgeous <3
