How to Use Hot Pink as a feature Colour

By on 12-07-2012 in Inspired By, Interior Design, Obsessed With, Shop There, Uncategorized

As I’ve been perusing through Pinterest the last couple of weeks a couple of shots of neutral interiors with hot pink accents have caught my attention.  No longer just for the nursery, bold pops of hot pink add a bit of wow to a space, particulalry as hot pink is generally unexpected.  I have gathered some images of hot pink pops in white interiors, hot pink used with blacks and greys, and hot pink used with neutral timber.  Some of it is very bold, some more subtle, all of it achievable however, as the hot pink accents are largely through accessories such as artworks and prints, rugs, cushions, or tables.

Bright White + Hot Pink

not so girly wow!

6.  Use a bold and colourful artwork above the bed in place of a headboard, to let the colours pop, stick to white linen, then draw out an accent colour through the side table and accessories, the resulting look is contemporary, bold, and super stylish.  Image: The Design Files

7. Glass console, plus 2 bright artworks, plus ferns in a vase equals a designer entryway.  Image: Elle Decor, via Small Shop Studio

Get the Look – Hot Pink Accents

I personally love the drama of the black and grey tones with a hot pink accent.  By opting for neutral furniture, then a pop of colour through the rug, you can change your look as often as your mood changes.

Then add some pink flowers such as cherry blossom in a feature vase.
