Pink has become a staple in interiors and it’s easy to see why. For the past six years or so, the colour has been everywhere – and for good reason. Elegant, soft, calming and hugely flattering, pink offers the versatility of a neutral, but with added warmth.
You can start small with pink accessories – individual pieces of furniture or even tiled nooks in a shower space – or you can go full-on pink. Whichever you choose, you can be sure that pink (which is known for its happiness-inducing qualities) will give you a space that’s lovely to live in.
If you’re looking for a neutral, almost architectural, shade then Orchard pink is the colour for you. It’s a fantastic backdrop for artwork or black and white photographs and offers a gently pulled-together feel for a room.
The great thing about pink is there are so many different shades and ways to use them. For example, if you fancy a bold, magenta-like shade – such as Magenta Oaks – but are worried it will be too dominating, then you could paint the inside of a cupboard. You’ll get your pink fix, but won’t overwhelm the room.
Sugary sweet, Hansel and Gretelis the perfect shade for bedrooms or romantic bathrooms. Its rich, sugary, creamy appearance makes it timeless.
When it comes to pink tiles, the vast array of patterns, shapes, formats and finishes available means there really is something for every space.
A huge favourite of ours is Forecast Lundy. The glaze on this gorgeous pink tile gives it a contemporary, slightly rustic finish and the rectangular format tile can be used in a number of creative ways. It looks great with brass and gold, offering a sumptuous feel to a space.
A totally different, opulent take on the pink tile comes in the form of Alchemy Pink Gin Brick. A mosaic range made from pure aluminium, each element of the tile is distressed by hand, so every scheme where these tiles are used is unique. Tiles from the collection are perfect to create a stand-out area, such as a shower, or used on walls they offer a space filled with reflected light and a gorgeous hue.
The Pink Bolonia tile is made exclusively for Fired Earth by our friends at Bert & May. It’s inspired by an intricate reclaimed design and has been thoughtfully recreated in a beautiful contemporary pink. With a delicious air of faded glamour, it instantly elevates any space.
Enamelled glass Dolci Candy Floss Hex tiles are made from enamelled glass traditionally used in jewellery design. This is what gives them their rich, creamy appearance. The hexagonal mosaic shape is on-trend and looks fantastic in rooms where you want added visual interest.
Hand-painted, freestanding baths add glamour in bathrooms large and small and many from the Fired Earth range can be painted in a colour of your choice. For a romantic and whimsical take a pink bath is hard to beat. The Versailles Bath shown here is painted in One October Morning.
Pinks are incredibly versatile when it comes to using them complementary shade. For a mid-century feel, greys are hard to beat. Green and pink is a classic, inspired-by-nature combination, whites make pink shades zing, and golds, brass and bronze used with pinks offer a sumptuous, opulent feel.
