Pink pastel with colours & textures

Although pastel pink pairs well with whites, light woods and gold, you can also pair it with bold colours, such as green for an electric feel. It is also ideal for minimalist interiors: add cool white furniture or surfaces, like white duvets in the bedroom, white cushions in the living room and white cabinets in the kitchen. Even the smallest details like window frames and doorknobs can make pastel pink pop.
If you want to create a soft, romantic and mysterious colour scheme, a pink pastels and grey tone combination is calling you. This is because, while light pink brings a feminine charm into the interior design, light grey tones enhance elegance. Contrast these colours with white to create a fresh, modern and welcoming environment.
Pink can also create a warm, mellow environment, which is ideal for entryways and living areas. To bring this comfortable sensation into the room, choose a mature pink, like a Pink Panther PC22, and pair it with earthy textured furniture and accessories.

Pink pastel with Wood

Choose wood finishes that complement your chosen pastel colours. Pastel colours blend in with natural materials, such as wood floors, wood countertops and seagrass. Incorporating lighter wood, such as bamboo or lighter maple will ensure that your interior is quant and calming.
Darker colour tiles and countertops can be incorporated to a room to create a balanced colour scheme, if you want interior to look bolder. For a stronger contrast, incorporate rich wood, such as cherry wood for pastel pinks, or mahogany wood for pastel blues and greens.
