Pantone rose dogwood rosa palo
Have I told you about my love for pink? It has become my favorite color lately, but not just because I have a little girl (or at least I want to believe so :-)) In fact, I don’t like the typical baby-pink, the shade that I love is a lighter pink, and combined with light gray, even better. The Pantone Color Institute nominates trendy colors every year, and this year one of the 10 colors that will be a trend in the next spring / summer 2017 will be just the light pink, more precisely Pale Dogwood with the number 13-1404

Pantone Pale Dogwood

This color combines very well with other colors such as white, black, gray, with decorative details and auxiliary furniture in copper and gold. And of course it looks beautiful in girly designs but also in the most Nordic interiors you can find.

A living room in Nordic style

Although it may seem that a pink wall would be more appropriate for a children’s room, combined with more sober furniture and selected decoration we can get a very chic touch.

Kale Green

Another color that combines very well with the light pink is the dark green called Kale, another do the top 10 of the season (Pantone 18-0107).

Costillas de Adán

The combination of these two colors in a kitchen is something not seen very often but it is spectacular, would you dare?

Don’t stop yourself with the walls. The color can also be incorporated to the furniture.

Navy Blue

Pink is more combinable than it seems, another color that goes very well with it is navy blue. Combining those two colors we get more sophisticated environments. The combination looks great in both living rooms and bedrooms.

There is no doubt that the light pink looks good in a child’s room or a little older girl, so adding a pink touch to the furniture by painting an old piece of furniture seems like a very good idea. It is original and also cheap.

This effect can be easily achieved with the paint called Chalk paint, that allows you to paint the furniture without sanding them before. It is wonderful! You can even paint Ikea furniture with melamine finish, where a normal paint does not grip. If you are interested in learning more about this painting and how to use it to restore furniture, sign up for the course that I am going to give on February 18 in Madrid.
