The psychology of colour.. in the pink

Pink symbolises compassion, nurturing and love. It has the passion and power of red coupled with the understanding, openness and completeness of white. The addition of white tones down the physical passion of red and makes it more gentle and loving.

The deeper the shade of pink the greater passion and energy it exudes. Pink is a symbol of hope in many countries. It is a very positive colour and inspires warmth, happiness and feelings of comfort creating a sense that everything will be ok.

Neon pink evokes feelings of warmth and happiness and symbolises a love of life. This amazing bathroom was spotted on the blog just good design.

If you prefer a tamer pink opt for a powder pink and couple with grey, white and black for added sophistication and serenity.

Pink adds softness and warmth to a serious industrial interior.

If you like pink and want to encourage calm comfort and warmth into your home take a look at our range of pink accessories.

 

Deck the house..

Here is a handful of ideas for the minimalist Christmas decorators out there. We can get into the festive spirit without embracing the traditional red and green gaudiness.

A cascade of festoon lighting strung up on the wall with a scattering of lights on the floor looks fantastically festive and will see you right through to the New Years celebrations (we think it looks so good that you might even just want to leave it there).

A black and white themed Christmas table is extremely chic, we have the perfect black napkins for your table. Take a look..

To complement the black napkins you could spray pine cones in either matt black or white spray paint and use them as place card holders with star shaped cards.

We absolutely love the idea of making neon pink Christmas trees out of Hama beads. Good to keep little fingers busy too. If you haven’t the time to make these you could always get a few of our neon pink tea light holders to dot along your table.

It’s always nice to discover a present of two in the tree, wrap them in white tissue hung with skinny black ribbon for a present surprise!
