The use of pink in décor has become almost as common as the LBD in fashion. It’s a staple. And pink in wallpaper is no different. Whether it’s a fully pink-inspired wallpaper or one with just hints of the hue, so many designs incorporate the colour. Use it to bring life into a dark space like a guest loo or combine it with metallics for a sophisticated and contemporary look. From baby to cerise, pink is here to stay in interiors. – Cara Saven from Cara Saven Wall Design

Far from the traditional candy floss, bubblegum and little girls’ rooms, shades of pink mixed with soft greys, rose gold and blues can bring elegance, sophistication and nostalgia into a space. Pink walls improve your completion and the overall mood in the room, calming disputes and encouraging conversation. – Leigh van der Bijl from Here & Elsewhere

You can use hues from the artwork to create inspiration with other hues in your décor scheme. – Sue McCoubrey from Block & Chisel
