Adding pink into our living room

Adding pink into a home

It’s funny how a bunch of flowers can totally change your mood. Peonies (which are, incidentally, my favourite ever flower and colour) have really brightened me and my home up lately. I have been buying myself a bunch each week – and every bloom looks stunning sitting around our family home.

It has actually got me loving this baby-pink colour again. It is such a pretty pastel colour and feels elegant, feminine, happy. Having the colour displayed in our house lately has indeed encouraged me to add more pink into our living room for the summer months.

The fabulous folk at Wayfair have kindly sent me these new gorgeous cushions (below) in order to brighten up our living room and give it a stylish feel for this season. I love them – such great quality and lovely designs.

Our main living room tends to stay relatively tidy during the day because the twins have a separate playroom and bedrooms each, so all of their toys are stored in there. I *try* to keep this our grown-up space and where Dave and I can chill out together at night. Or where I can grab a cup of tea and some working time during the day.

Pink has been a strong trend for the last year or so within interiors – and remains a strong colour for this season too. It works really well with grey, gold and white. You also don’t have to go too ‘girly’ with it either – I’d say just add subtle hints & accents of it by using a few accessories.

As I have shown here, you don’t have to spend too much money, or go to too much effort to change the look and feel of a space. Here I have simply added in some flowers & cushions and the colours have really lifted the room.

Do you like pink in your home?

Love, Jess x

      Thanks lovely! It is my favourite colour however it can be quite feminine and so the cushions are perfect! Love Wayfair – they sell everything! xx

    The pink really lifts the whole scheme Jess, love the selection of different shapes and textures too. #HomeEtc

      Thanks so much – I think the textures were needed as the room was lacking something. So pleased with the colour! xx

    I love pink, especially brighter, neon pinks. I never used to be a fan of it, but I think teamed with the right colours, it can really look stylish. Love all the textures you’ve chosen too.

      Thanks very much! Our room was quite white and grey and so the pink has really lifted the room! xx

    I’m a huge fan of pink, but more of a light dusky pink, and you’ll find it popping up throughout our home, much to my husband’s bemusement! I adore peony season too and end up spending far too much money on them! xx

      Yay! Cannot wait to see more of your home!! xx

    I love peonies! And I love what flowers feel like in the home. I’m thinking of adding some pink to one of my rooms for a change too. They look great x

    I love this as pink features in nearly every room in my home, it is a colour that goes with so many others

    The cushions are gorgeous! I never liked pink but have recently added it as a colour in our bedroom and love how well it works to add a feminine touch to more masculine grey X #HomeEtc

    I wouldn’t normally be a fan of pink but I have used it in our guest bedroom and it works really well against all the white in there. You living room looks great. Grey and white is so versatile. #homeetc
