Pantone actually named it “Rose Quartz” and made it “Colour of the Year 2016

Wallpaper

 

Wallpaper is fantastic for people who aren’t artistic or good with putting colours together  – they do it for you!! You just find the one you want and …. Ta – da.

All you have to do is find the accessories to match – not too bad, at least you have the colour scheme right in front of you eh??

Here are some wallpaper ideas for inspiration if you are having trouble putting paint colours together.

A great thing about “Millennial Pink” is that it works with so many colours so wallpaper is a fantastic way to incorporate it into a room. You can have it on all four walls or just one to make it a feature. That will be sure to make it a talking point.

Accessories

 

There are a lot of us out there that live in homes with rooms that are completely white or magnolia…. (speaking from experience!) and don’t want to change the colour as it’s relaxing or it looks nice and clean. Therefore going completely pink might not be for you but you might want to have white rooms and change your accessories with the biggest trends.

Thought that might get you listening. Go on – do it, I dare you…..

 

Here are some accessories that are “millennial pink” to make your room pop!
