Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying pink has been one of the most popular hues of the last few years. From the first hint of pink when blush hit the scene last year to the culturally charged millennial pink, it’s arguable that pink has been firmly in the public consciousness ever since Pantone named Rose Quartz as one of its dual Colors of Year in December 2015. A distinctly grown-up version to the pinks of our past, each new ‘in’ shade was at the subtler end of the pink spectrum but for late August 2017 there is a new hot hue in the gang. A more carefree and fun update for the end of the season The LuxPad takes a peek at bubblegum pink interiors…
Bubblegum pink, Millennial pink’s slightly crazier cousin, is the bolder shade we have all been looking for as summer draws to a close. Pink is one of the most versatile colors in both fashion and interiors as it can be effortlessly morphed to suit many styles and tastes depending on the other colors it’s combined with. When combined with white and delicate metallics, pink takes on an ethereal quality and when grey is added any room is transformed into a Scandinavian design celebration. Mixed with earthy tones and green foliage, the color creates a rustic haven, or when paired with cool dark tones it has an instant edge. Another stylish combination which has been taking the interior world by storm in recent months is forest green and bubblegum pink interiors, made famous by the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel’s decor which is still as relevant today as it was in the 1950s when unveiled.
With luscious tropical undertones bubblegum pink is one of the hottest pink shades for the home this season. Reminiscent of vibrant sunsets, it has a feel-good factor which makes it ideal for fun color pop accessories rather than an entire home makeover. This year has certainly been the year of the tropical print, from flamingos to pineapples and where tropical prints are found, bubblegum pink is rarely far behind. Adding a pop art edge wherever placed, the color can be utilized in easily updated items such as soft furnishings, lamps and ornaments. However if you are looking for a more permanent tribute to the sunny shade, wallpaper and furniture are also excellent choices.
As with using any wallpaper in the home, it is a fantastic excuse to experiment with color and pattern and the perfect way to add a bold accent color. With numerous bubblegum pink wallpaper designs available from top wallpaper brands, you can be as daring as you like with shade and print. For furniture, block color designs in bold shades creates a chic statement, think bubblegum pink sofas or occasional chairs to showcase this color at its best. Whichever way you choose to add the hue, you can guarantee that bubblegum pink interiors are one of the boldest looks of 2017.
