If you’ve been following design trends, you’ve probably heard about millennial pink. This rosy hue started to explode on the fashion, advertising and design scenes as early as 2012, and seven years later, there are no signs of it going away. Here are some tips on how to use this generation-defining colour to decorate your home.

Think about undertones

Millennial pink varies in shade from a vibrant grapefruit colour to a beige pink or peachy salmon. In general, it’s a colour almost pale enough to be a neutral while still distinctive enough to bring drab rooms to life.

Whatever variation you choose, make sure to consider the shade’s undertones when deciding how to use the colour. Cooler pinks (shades with blue-grey rather than peach undertones) go well with white, grey and wood accessories while warmer, more salmon pinks go best with other warm shades.

Start small

Begin with a few pink touches to see how the colour matches with the rest of your decor. For instance, start with pink throw pillows and bed linen before going for a pink couch or painting an entire room. Other unique and tasteful ways to use the colour include integrating a millennial pink accent wall in your living room or a pink-tiled backsplash in your kitchen.

If you’re worried too much millennial pink could make your home look dated in a few years, enlist a design expert to help you. They’ll advise you on how to achieve a timeless look rather than one that could quickly fall out of fashion.
