After last week’s post on my Parisian snapshots I felt inspired to hunt out some interiors aligned with the beauty of the famous French city – and voila, these beautiful shots featuring the new H&M Home S/S14 collection fitted the bill perfectly! Despite the grandeur of Paris itself, many of it’s inhabitants are the essence of understated chic, from their effortless dress sense to their refined approach to interiors. Dusty pink and grey is a colour combination that feels at home with these classic wooden herringbone floors because the subtle pink shades act as a stylish accent to the grey base palettes, without distracting from the existing features of the space. Instead they serve as an understated but oh so chic foil to the characterful space around them, pairing beautifully with the marble detailing of the coffee table. What inspires you about this space? Do you like to decorate with pink and grey?

  1. Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing! I definitely like to decorate witg grey and pink…not all over my home, but it’s the new colour scheme of my living room. Just started to change the decor, some finishing touches still needed. (picture here: http://www.neovias.blogspot.fi/2014/01/recycled-denim-pillow.html)…Still need to find some more art for walls. That is the hardest part – to find inexpensive but attractive art!

    • @Katja – Thank you for sharing a link to your living room – it looks so cosy, colourful and inviting! Have you tried Gallery Walls or 20×200 for relatively inexpensive art?

  2. This is beautiful. Greys with dusty pinks or dusty blues (maybe even a bit of both?) are my favourite colour schemes at the moment! X

  3. @will Thanks, so hard to pick a sofa online when you cant try one out! The Pink and grey looks great. Think dusky not barbie 🙂

  4. I love the grey and pink combo, I’ve just gone for soft grey and aqua with hints of pink – furniture arriving on monday and can’t wait to see how it works.

  5. I think these colours are great together but after buying a pink cushion last year I soon realised I wasn’t the pink-cushion type. Pink flowers, yes. Pink cushions, no.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    • @Lisa – Tee hee, this made me chuckle. I’m the same if it’s neon or bright pink but right now I can’t get enough of this faded, worn, dusty pink!

  6. Loving the pink scheme! i just made some pink strawberry donuts on the blog that would go down a treat with this interior! x

  7. My two favorite hue combos. I designed my living room with these colors and you cannot go wrong. Everyone looks beautiful against pale pink walls and in my opinion gray is the best neutral hands down. Great post!

  8. Dusty pink and grey are my signature colours (even in graphic design and brand identity stuff!) so I definitely love this colour scheme for interior 🙂 My house is decorated in mostly white with splashes or greys and pinks as well. Love these inspirational pictures so thank you for sharing!

  9. I really love dusky pink, it’s a shade I go to for my clothing very often but have never been brave enough to decorate with it. However, I use it alot in my scrapbooking layouts so it is given an outing there instead,

    PS yay for the page loading today. Now I have alot to catch up on xxx

  10. Love the soft and muted color palette! it’s so calm and sophisticated at the same time. The streamlined, mid-century styled furnishings work beautifully with the classic moulding on the walls + herringbone on the floor. I am crazy about that coffee table with a brass base and a marble top. SO GOOD!!

    Happy Weekend Mr!

  11. I’m not the typical pink fan, but I admit, the combination looks gorgeous. Lately, I’m fascinated by light colours and bright and open rooms. Definitely feels like a cosy place to chill out.
    Though I think maybe there are too much pillows to actually set up on the sofa comfortably, but I might be wrong here. Anyway, nice find 🙂
