Pink interiors ideas to tickle your fancy

Morphing from a colour preconceived to be feminine - perhaps best kept in the nursery - to a hue of universal appeal, pink has gone post-pretty in our homes. There's no colour to rival pink for serving a calming, cosy vibe, as many pandemic redecorators discovered. Pink's popularity hasn't flagged for half a decade, since Rose Quartz was named as one of Pantone's colours of the year in 2016. Pro-pink design consultant Karen Haller, who wrote The little Book of Colour, has tracked its progress from beyond the pales to mainstream. Discover the whole article by Katrina Burroughs over here.

Why more showrooms are hitting the road

The phenomenon is not covid related. In 2018, West Sussex, England-based Maker&Son made their unofficial maiden voyage when co-founder Felix Conran put one of their sofas in the back of a car and drove it to an interested buyer. That's how the whole van-idea was born. It all started with a personal dream, a different way to meet the customers, and connect with customers at home.
