What colours can be paired with blush?
In the interiors world, blush is being referred to as a “new neutral” and the perfect base for any décor scheme. Its position on the colour spectrum makes it a versatile, soft yet eye-catching colour, meaning you can let your creativity run wild and design the ultimate Insta-worthy scheme that embraces deep velvet-like hues or soft, muted tones.
If you’re keen to create a contrasting aesthetic, try pairing blush hues with dark grey, navy blue, matt black and even brass tones. Alternatively, you can opt for minty hues, pale blues and soft creams for a look that is whimsical and easy on the eye.
Blush tones also work wonderfully with all different shades of white. It’s the perfect colour combination for those seeking something fairly minimal with a warming hint of colour.

How to make an impact with the colour blush
Pink walls will certainly make a statement, especially across bathrooms. If you’re short on space, consider using pink bathroom tiles as a way of zoning an area. You can also position Pink tiles such as our lovely Poitiers Rose Pink tiles in a shower room to create a stunning feature wall or you can simply place them in a diagonal format for that eye-catching, stand-out statement.
If you don’t want to go too overboard, you can easily tone it down by bringing in softer colour palettes that will keep the overall look calm and collected. A similar aesthetic can be created in the kitchen behind cookers and basins with metro brick tiles in different layouts. From vertical formats to horizontal and herringbone styles, the result is distinct as well as beautifully calming.
