Poppy pink, moody red, or an electric version of both, red and pink are best friends. Coming from the same colour family, it follows that they compliment one another but the combination of them together in one space has been a no-no for some time.
Both are such ancient colours and a celebration of life – look to the beautiful interior decoration of the pink Putra Mosque in Putrajaya, Malaysia for a style cue that celebrates the union.
Or, take your lead from fashion trends - we’ve seen a lot of pink paired with red on the catwalk this season so we’re ready to embrace it in our homes. Look to the runway for how to bring it all together – textures, prints, fabrics and finishes in clothing can all inform your interior decoration at home.

Invest big with larger pieces of furniture in luscious velvet or start small with objects and accents in red glass, warming rosy marble tones and soft furnishings in touch-me textures.
