It’s probably total sacrilege to say this when it’s still January: but doesn’t it feel kind of, well, spring-like out there at times? Maybe that’s why I’ve been pinning this wonderfully fresh colour combo. Pastel pink is going to be popping up a lot this spring, thanks to the “warm, embracing” Rose Quartz, one of two colours that Pantone named as it’s Colour of the Year. The green works best if it’s a lush botanical; cacti, rubber plants, ferns, air plants.
I remember commissioning Blush & Botanicals as a lovely trend story for the 2015 Jan-Feb issue of Image Interiors & Living, so it’s not a wildly new look. Since then, it’s taken on a cheekier, more loose and edgy feel, as these Pinterest discoveries show.
