This pastel pink hue is perfect for a romantic Valentines Day scheme, so take inspiration from one of Pantone’s official colours of the year and THINK PINK.
Named after the pretty pink crystals found in Rose Quartz rock, this subtle colour looks particularly stunning in a bedroom, where you want to create a restful atmosphere that’s welcoming, serene and elegant.
This delicate, barely-there pink works really well on luxurious, soft-to-the-touch fabrics. Here, our beautiful button-back Foxtail bed has been upholstered in a silky pink satin fabric for a sumptuous finish that’s perfect for a beautiful boudoir. We’ve completed the look with some airy sheer voile panels at the windows – for soft, diffused light – a cosy textured throw and super-luxe silk sheets.
Rose Quartz pink always looks gorgeous with gold, so seek out glittering gold or brass accessories and furniture with warm metallic elements for a glamorous, contemporary look. It also works well with cool pale grey, which is why we’ve chosen this chic, marble-effect ‘Makrana’ wallpaper (£62 per roll, Harlequin) for our romantic bedroom scheme.
Try combining pale, pastel pink with a soft, mint green for a fresh, fun look, or alternatively use it as an accent colour in a monochrome scheme for a modern Scandinavian style room.

This Valentines Day, channel the Rose Quartz trend and treat your loved one (or yourself!) to a floral scented candle, a dozen pink roses or pink champagne truffles for a sweet treat. Choose truffles in a pretty tin, so it can be kept afterwards and used to store earrings or trinkets on a dressing table.
