It’s hard to believe that we are already a week into May, but before we make the official transition from spring to summer, I want to give recognition to a gorgeous springtime hue that has gained popularity in the interior design world recently and continues to make its way into my classically current designs. That’s right, I’m talking about blush.

I personally love to pair this soft, pale pink shade with gold or grey accents to bring an elegant, feminine touch to the interior design of a space. Whether in the form of pillows, furniture pieces and everything in between, including this subtle hue into a room’s design can have a big impact on the space and may just be the perfect addition to complete your look! Here are some examples of how I’ve blended blush into my interiors, and additional pieces I can’t wait to incorporate in my future classically current designs.

Facile Femininity

My favorite thing about blush tones is the way they can effortlessly make a large impact on the overall tone of a room. Simply throw in a blush accent pillow with a small bouquet of flowers on a side table among supporting colors, like cream or white, to turn a bedroom into a feminine oasis.

Just as it is a fabulous color to feature in a feminine interior design, when paired with brass gold accents, blush tones can also elevate a room to a gorgeous, stately design. Consider subtle ways to incorporate this soft pink hue into the design to create a delicate balance among more striking furniture pieces.

If your goal is to pair this pale tint with other hues aside from gold or cream, blush can play a wonderful supportive role in a room among darker, dominant shades as well.  The versatility of blush makes it malleable in a wide variety of interior design formats, and is a great method to soften the tone of a room.

Looking to the Future

As blush continues to grow in popularity, more and more vendors are introducing the color to their collections and I couldn’t be more excited about some of the fab pieces I have recently discovered.
