My favourite ways to combine green and pink

Green is my favourite – in all forms. It’s perfect in your kitchen, bedroom and even your bathroom. Teaming it with another colour can be tricky, though. Ever heard the phrase ‘blue and green should never be seen’? Not true. Great with charcoals, warm neutrals and complementing tones of lovely green, you can make it work. But my favourite way to match green is with pink.

Soft dusky pink alongside an emerald green can make a dramatic statement, while grey-ish pink and soft sage feel timeless and classic. You could even simply add some house plants to complement your pink walls for a less permanent solution. You can never have too many house plants, right?

Social media is buzzing for the combination too, the green and pink hashtag is really building. How stunning is this from @harrison_nate_and_me?

The kitchen

You don’t have to go for the brighter, grassy tones, the more muted shades are also perfect with pink and if you don’t want to go permanent with the bright pinks you can always bring them in with small appliances, like this pretty little Dualit toaster.

This simple kitchen features slab doors in Benjamin Moore’s First Light paint. They have been paired with rounded bar handles for a contemporary look. Benjamin Moore paints start at £23 for 0.94 litres.
Bespoke schemes from Roundhouse start from £35,000.

Pink can also come through in metallic tones, like this stunning Day True compact kitchen, which features a single rose gold cabinet.

Add personality to a small space with clever use of green, as shown in this design by Day True, where kitchens are priced from £25,000. The dramatic dark olive cabinets are offset by white and grey worktops.

I love this striking feature wall, made up of Emerald Green London Tiles from Devol and paired with furniture in Bond Street Blue shade, plus a bespoke pink mixed especially for the project. 

This eye-catching design using Devol’s Classic English Kitchen, which starts from £25,000, mixes coloured Shaker-style units.

The bedroom and bathroom

This soft combination of green and pink is subtle and beautiful, especially when paired with marble. Consider laying metro tiles vertically for a contemporary look. Potters Glaze tiles in Leach, £64.24 per sq m; Smithfield basin, £600; Mid-town wall-mounted three-hole basin mixer with cross heads, £385; Brookhaven marble floor tiles, £95.02 per sq m, Brookhaven marble skirting £24.98 each, all Claybrook.

With coordinating shades, the new Linda Barker Paints range has a water based formula and is made from natural ingredients. The paints are breathable, virtually odourless, and low in VOCs. From £28 for 1 litre of eggshell or satin paint. This gorgeous mossy green looks perfect with a candy pink.

My favourite use of the pink and green combination is emerald and deep tones of green paired with dusky pink.
