Colour Combination: Grey & Pink


Recently I have been thinking about a very specific hue, a colour that polarises. Pink. While some are all for it, others are - gently put - rather reluctant. I was never head over heels into pink, but lately I was coveting a special combination: pink and grey. If I had to narrow it down more precisely, I would say dusky pink with an anthracite hue. In order to give you an idea what I have in mind, I've put a little collage together for you. Plus a few market finds to bring that style into your homes. Hope you enjoy!

  3. The color combo is fantastic. I personally adore this shade of pink. With grey, it looks both playful and sophisticated.

  4. grey and pink is great BUT it's absolutely got to be 'Altrosa' or 'Antikrosa' so well done for choosing those:)

  5. I love this color combo! It takes something that could be to babyish or girly and transforms it into something grownup and sophisticated, with the introduction of grey. I love it!

  14. I didn’t know that I could combine grey and pink to get a nice interior design. Both the colours are matching and charming. These colours are perfect to decorate the rooms.
