S/S15 Colour Trends – Blush With Excitement

Adele Shotton-Pugh | Posted
One of this seasons interior design colour trends is Blush. Don't be fooled into thinking blush is a wishy-washy derogative of white that's insipid because it's not. Blush is a colour in its own right; like any other colours there are variations in tone along with an intensity born from the base colour undertones. Take make-up blusher as an example, some suit paler skin tones while others darker. You can also use make-up blusher as an indicator on how to use the colour blush – think of it along the line of highlighting and complimenting the rest of your colour palette.   A beige and pink salmon living room with classy white sofas, armchairs and brown patterned cushions
