If you like to stay at the forefront of fashion, forget interior design magazines. Instead, head to Instagram and Pinterest.
Both sites have millions of users sharing images they love in real time, so it’s really easy to spot emerging trends before they go mainstream. Take the green on pink trend for example:
As we wrote in our trend guide earlier this year, green on pink is surging in popularity at the moment. If the popularity of green and pink on social media is anything to go by, I think we can safely say the two shades are set to become the next big thing. Fresh, bright, and airy, the two colours will certainly liven up any room this summer.
If you’re redecorating your home, why not try your hand at this colour scheme? Below, we’ve included plenty of tips to get you started.
Here are three quick tips for using the colour combo in your home:
1) Unless you’re fairly confident in your decorating abilities, or simply love the eclectic style, don’t decorate your whole room with the two shades! Instead, keep the room fairly neutral and pick out the theme using statement pieces (for example, a sofa or cabinet) and accessories (cushions, throws etc).
2) Add an extra oomph to your room by mixing and matching textured fabrics. Think plush emerald green velvet cushions paired with soft pink fluffy faux fur throws.
3) Subtle hints of warm metallics like gold and copper will add a little luxe to your pink and green scheme.
