The look of love

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and as we’re celebrating Valentines day today, I thought
I'd choose the colour crush of the moment, blush pink.
 
I’ve never really been a pink person myself but have always liked the colour of a freshly
plastered wall and a pretty ballet slipper. I’ve tried to copy the colour in paint with a mixed degree of success over the years, so to my surprise I'm actually loving the new dusty pink blush, it’s the perfect new neutral and sits so happily with so many colours. I feel sure that this trend
is going to last for many seasons to come…
 
I’ve chosen some complementary paints and wallpapers that have caught my eye to make this mood board.
