When it comes to interior design, pink is commonly associated with femininity and is usually confined to little girls’ bedrooms. If you are considering a pink themed room outside this box however, you may wish to take tips from this lady: Mother-of-two, Wanda Matthew, has taken her love of pink to the extreme.
Over three years, she has converted her three-bedroom home in Bolton, Greater Manchester into a candy-coloured shrine. Everything from carpet, wallpaper and furniture is pink, including her cleaning products.
In an interview with the Daily Mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1374380/Wanda-Matthews-obsessed-pink-decks-entire-house-right-bleach.html, she said: “Some people may think that it’s a bit too much, but I don’t care. My friends and family know me surrounded by pink, so they’re used to it.
“I just never get sick of the colour and neither do my little girls. I don’t know what I’d do if I had a boy though.
“I don’t think I have anything other people would find unusual, but people normally react by saying “wow, that’s a lot of pink”.”
This much pink might not be to the liking of everyone, but it doesn’t mean that pink can’t be incorporated into your home to achieve a subtle look. Indeed, prevailing trends are shifting towards fun colours that brighten up a room.
Pink can be used in combinations, especially mixed with other warm colours such as shades of orange, yellow and red. Alternatively, try pairing fuchsia with white for a striking and crisp effect – white walls, floors and furniture look great with pink cushions and accessories.
