Let’s start the series of posts dedicated to the pastel pink interior design with the purest of all the combinations: Monochrome pink design!

Calling all the purists out there! You are probably thinking that this is a total disaster. OMG, it is like living in Hello Kitty’s world or in the mind of a 12-year-old girl… But trust me, it is not as bad as it may sound.

Shall we look at some example first? (You really don’t believe me, do you?)

See? It is actually incredibly cool, don’t you agree?

It is because of the use of a very pale tone of pink, which removes the ‘Barbie Girl’ effect and rather donates softness and warmth to the room. Indeed the biggest mistake is to muster all the pinks under one big preconception. Pastel pinks are normally not as invasive and can be cold or warm, depending on the tones, which will result in diametrally opposite outcomes. Some of the shades will be simply perfect with the blues, and others are going to marry splendidly with reds and yellows.

Which means that we can have completely different accessories and combinations within a room simply changing the colour of the wall.

But let’s stay focus on the topic of this post: the monochrome pink design!

This is probably the most extreme design of the entire series but it is definitely the most effective if you like pink!
The monochrome pink design is warm and bright at the same time. It is probably more appropriate to girls but I personally think that an entire pink house is extremely interesting. The use of pale pinks and blush pinks are definitely helping to lose the ‘Barbie effect’ and create a cosy and warm, refined environment.

Let’s have a look at some examples that I put together for you, a living room and a bedroom.
