And it's very Wes Anderson
Now that we have high street retailers like H&M and Zara moving into homeware, it’s no surprise that there’s been a lot of interest in interiors recently. While some might go for Primark’s new Harry Potter collection and others may go for a full on Dolce & Gabbana fridge, there’s one big decorating trend picking up speed on Pinterest – namely the colours pink and green.
According to Pinterest interior trends, there’s been a massive surge in people looking specifically for pink and green interiors with saves skyrocketing to 1150%. It’s no surprise though as Pantone recently announced that a leafy shade called Greenery was 2017’s colour of the year and millennial pink is more or less here to stay (seriously, it’s impossible to escape).
Homeware geeks on Pinterest combined the shades with other popular trends making a comeback, such as mosaics and tiles. Tiles in all shapes and sizes – subway, beehive, fish scale – have also climbed 920% for green shades and 115% for pink shades.
Places like the Riad Yasmine hotel above brought the green tile trend into the outdoors, combining different shades and shapes to create a show-stopping pool. Naturally, it’s been making the rounds on social media.
This gorgeous pink and gold bathroom by The Style School interior designers is also bang on trend, bringing in a couple of round mirrors to break up the uniform square tiles.
If you’re in a rental and retiling your home isn’t in the cards, home accessories and fabrics are always a great way to bring colour into your pad. Desenio has a collection of gorgeous green and pink prints that fit easily into an IKEA frame and if you’re thinking of upgrading your bedspread, Secret Linen Store is a good shout.
If you’re willing to make an investment, accent furniture pieces like this bright pink chest of drawers by Out There Interiors always look super cool in any room. We’ve also got a massive soft spot for wallpaper (landlord allowing, of course) and Cole & Son’s breathtaking Palm Leaves is almost painfully on-trend – we want our entire living room covered in the stuff. Unfortunately, it won’t be available until next month but at least you know what’s coming up.
And of course, plants are always a great way to bring a dose of greenery into your home. If you’re not the best gardener around, Devil’s Ivy or rubber plants may be the best option – there’s also no shame in going full faux at IKEA and buying plastic foliage. Not everyone’s cut out to be a plant mama and that’s totally okay.
If somebody could come over and redesign our house ASAP, that would be great…
