Bloomingville, West Elm, By Nord? our favourite interiors brands are blending the botanical and blush trends for a fresh look for spring/summer. Here are some clever interior design tips from savvy stylist Ciara O?Halloran on using these on-trend hues to dramatically change the look of your home? without the actual drama.
From fresh, feminine blush tones to dusty rose shades with depth and warmth, pink comes in many stylish guises. Add in the current darling of the interiors world, copper, and you have a trend with legs.
Layer with textures like matt wood and sleek marble to keep things contemporary, and clay tones in your kitchen. A pop of soft botanical patterns brings a fresh, calming mood to a metallic-toned bedroom or living room.

Add a quirky twist with copper decorative nails. Use them to display your favourite art pieces or as a quirky hallway hook.
Rose-metal accessories are everywhere right now, and are such an easy way to bring a hint of the look into your home. Think punchy copper-hued desk lamps and table-top items.

Botanical prints in copper, blush and pink are very current. From minimal grass patterns to fecund fields of flowers, these patterns look great over a large area or as a smaller piece of high-impact wall art. Shades of peach and copper will give an earthy feel, while lighter pops of rose work beautifully with high-sheen copper to give a fresh and airy mood for spring.
Cushions are an easy update. From rose patterns to polka dots, all things blush will bring instant softness to your space.
