Green (and pink) with (interiors) envy

In our opinion, pink and green should always be seen. It’s the most delightful combination.

It started here (No197 Chiswick Fire Station – where the interiors are ridiculously chic) and then I went to Bronte and ogled the Tom Dixon-designed interiors there, with its pink chairs and sexy green banquettes and quite frankly epic bar…


Of course, you’re already au fait (and probably obsessed with) the pinkness of Sketch and Spring…

But the green adds a certain something. And such is the way of these things, I soon started seeing pink and green everywhere. How about in the kitchen, for instance? (Makes a serious change from white and grey Scandi-meets-industrial chic.)

It makes a real statement in the living room.

If that’s too much – how about confining it to a chair?

Or it feels rather grand in the bedroom. (I think it’s the addition of gilt edging and that splendid lamp which does it.)

Tempted? Add a touch of metal (you can see how well it works) and a contrasting pattern (nothing anchors the furniture in a room better than the killer combination of a rug and a focal point). At this time of year – I’d be tempted to up the pink with peonies (this bunch even share my daughter’s name, so I think it’s meant to be….).
