Feminine Scandi dining roomcredit

This feminine Scandi dining room is the domain of Pernille and her family. She’s a blogger, Instagrammer and homeware shop owner based over in Denmark.

The repetition of deep purple, soft pink and grey is very pleasing on the eye. The deep, wine colour on the right-hand wall is Sadolin‘s ‘Shady Red’. The light pink colour on the far wall is ‘Soft Blush’ from the same company. ‘Creme de la Rose’ by Crown is very similar to the latter, and is available here in the UK. The glossy, white-painted floorboards bounce sunlight up & around the room.

Soft textiles, potted cacti, hanging kokedama and framed artwork give a homely feel.

Pink vibrant patio gardencredit

This vibrant patio garden may be pink, but don’t think it’s all girlie – there’s a fabulous BBQ installed which would please the most manly of grill masters!

The design makes great use of limited space with numerous spots to sit and separate cooking and dining areas. Again, space is used to the maximum by incorporating the vertical in the planting scheme.

To complete the look, the garden is almost completely white-washed to expand and bounce light around the enclosure. The pink of the seating is picked up in the choice of flowering plants.

Home Tones: Hibiscus

Hibiscus pink games roomcredit

Last week, in our Home Tones post, we discovered that my birthday colour is Dry Rose. This week, it’s only fair to talk about Justin’s birthday colour – Hibiscus – which is your colour if you were born on 14th April. If you weren’t born on this day, you can find out what your own colour is in Michele Bernhardt’s book, Colorstrology: What Your Birthday Color Says About You.

Those born on Justin’s birthday are supposed to be, “Determined | Persuasive | Sparkly”. It continues…

Swatch of Pantone's 'Hibiscus'You have a sparkly personality and the room lights up when you are in it. It is important for you to express your ideas with flair and gusto. Staying within the status quo and being average is not for you. Remain detached in regard to material ambitions and you will find that money and financial gain will come more readily to you. Your personal color gives you the staying power to follow through to completion. Wearing, meditating or surrounding yourself with Hibiscus helps you to listen better while improving your timing.

Home Tones: Coral

Although natural coral is found in an array of hues, the coral that the colour is named after is red or ‘precious’ coral. It’s on the pink end of the orange spectrum and definitely has to be considered only a highlight colour. A room with wall to wall, floor to ceiling coral would feel really oppressive and overbearing.  The colour is stunning when used on a feature wall, painted furniture and in textiles. It’s often teamed with brilliant white and works really well with teal.

Home Tones: Rose Quartz and Serenity

Armchairs and cushions in Pantone's 'Serenity' colour of the year 2016credit

In the past week, ‘Rose Quartz’ and ‘Serenity’ have been chosen as the joint Pantone Colours of the Year for 2016. We’ve chosen to highlight various homes that use the two colours. Personally speaking, we’re not keen on using them together – it’s a bit reminiscent of 1980s coach seat upholstery.

They’re colours we think would be used to paint the walls in babies’ rooms – a little uninspiring – pink for girls, blue for boys. We have however found some interiors that use them successfully.
