Milennial pink has been a popular shade in home decor for quite some time now, ever since Pantone samed Rose Quartz their colour of the year in 2016. Since then, rose gold hit us in a big way, and this evolved into a more subdued, blush colour that has been dubbed ‘milennial pink’. And now it’s everywhere. It’s a perfect shade for interior design, as it mixes well with neutral colours like grey and white.

Of course, completely redecorating your home can be time consuming and expensive, so if you want to just dip your toes into this trend, here are some subtle ways you can inject the colour into your home decor.

Make your sofa blush

Adding cushions or throws to a light coloured sofa is a fast and easy way to give it an upgrade.

Give your succulents a new home

Succulents are another huge craze that hit interior design a while back, and have stuck around ever since. The colour combination of the dark green and pale pink is a perfect contrast, and will add a youthful vibe to the room. Plus, succulents are an inexpensive and low-maintenance plantĀ  – they last a long time, and don’t need regular watering.


Adding a few pink accessories in the kitchen can make a big difference, especially if they’re kept on display. Swap tired and dirty pots, pans, utensils and mugs for some new pink ones for an instant upgrade.

Add a feature wall

Milennial pink is the perfect shade for a feature wall as it’s not too bold to go out of fashion quickly, or clash with any other colours in the room. If you’re looking for a way to make a lasting impact on the room without taking a big risk, this will completely transform it.

Beef up your bedding

Similar to the cushions and throws in the living room, easy upgrades can be made in the bedroom simply by switching up your bedding. The bed is obviously the focal point of the bedroom, so any changes made here will make an instant impact. Switch to a pale, blush pink duvet cover and accessorise with white and grey cushions (bonus milennial points for geometric patterns).

Accent tiles

Perfect for either the bathroom or the kitchen are accent tiles. Brighten up the splashback area of your worktop with some milennial pink tiles, or maybe add a feature section behind the bathtub.
