Rose Quartz; the New Neutral

Lucy Clarke from Curve Interior in Manchester is our style crush for this article and she tells you all about mixing things up for spring. Spring has most definitely sprung and as we make our way through April we’re preparing our inside rooms for a brighter tomorrow.

And she’s telling us to ‘Think Pink’ this spring as the candy hue gets a grown up makeover. ‘We aren’t talking about the Bubblegum pink reminiscent of a 7 year olds bedroom, we’re talking pastel’

A step away from the bright garish pinks and deeper colours of winter, this pink is designed to blend perfectly with everything from an adamant tomboy to a girly girl. Lucy explained to us how it works with a palette already.

“It’s the new neutral! A perfect nude pink, teamed with grey colour tones it is set to be a huge hit this spring. It works great as a transition shade into the new season as the metallic bronze accessories from winter work so well, just keep it matte for a real contemporary feel.”

Whilst pink may be perceived as a feminine colour, this tone is most definitely gender neutral, especially when teamed with very industrial rigid furniture and stripped back interiors.

“Rose quartz, Pantones colour of the year is just the colour to lead you into the spring! The tones of this shade go so well with greys, blacks and whites. It can also be teamed with Pantones other amazing spring shade Lilac Gray.”

And for all of our friends who favour the dark side a little bit more...

“A cool tone grey with a hint of lilac compliments Rose Quartz perfectly. You could have a darker grey wall and bring the pink into the bedding and accessories. Keeping everything else bright and neutral to let these colours pop!

If you aren’t ready to take the full plunge then accessories may be your answer! Gorgeous cushions, glasses and wall hangings allow anyone to subtly bring this powdery pink into a scheme without a huge commitment to the colour.”
