2016 was a tumultuous year in many ways, but it did give us one unquestionably popular decision – rose quartz as Pantone colour of the year. This light and airy shade of pale pink is a universally flattering tone that has continued to inspire us in 2017.
A splash of pink in an outfit of any style never goes amiss. You could go matchy and pair this structured Radley bag with the very elegant Kerr heels from Ravel, although both will of course look gorgeous separately. Adorn your wrist with this hot pink Pilgrim watch; it brings a new twist to the term ‘arm candy’. Rose gold is a timeless choice, and this morganite and diamond necklace is a luxurious celebration of the power of pink.
Add a flirty flush to your visage with these beauty goodies. On the very left we have Mally’s Ultimate Performance foundation in her signature pink packaging. While the gorgeous formulation and lasting power are of course its main features, we also love the look of this bottle sitting on our dressing table. A rosy lip is perfect for any occasion, and this Benefit They’re Real lipstick in Pink Thrill makes flawless application super easy. If you only have time to apply one product in the morning – make it the Rockateur blush. It instantly perks up the face and adds a glow. Finally, because why have one pink lip product when you can have nine, we have this Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme set. Ranging from pinky nude to deep berry, you’ll love the variety.
Soft shades of pink create a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, which is just what you want for your home. The Mayfair Manor cushions above will look sumptuous against any other pastel shade of bedding. We’ve tried out these Alison Cork faux peonies at either end of a mantelpiece, on our bedside tables, and as centerpieces on a dining table… they look gorgeous just about everywhere! This votive collection from Yankee Candle comes with two pink votive holders, the colour serves to soften the light and create that romantic atmosphere for snuggling on the sofa. Last but certainly not least, is this VQ Hepburn radio. It’s deep raspberry-ish trim will look at home in a busy kitchen, perfect for pumping out the tunes as you whip up your culinary masterpieces/ beans on toast.
If you’ve been shy of the colour pink in the past we hope we’ve convinced you to give it a try.
