Colour Focus: Strawberry parfait

25th June is National Strawberry Parfait Day – making it the perfect time to start thinking about how you can incorporate some sumptuous strawberry shades within your home.

Although many of us automatically opt for shades of blue or green when decorating our home, strawberry, red and pink can be just as effective. Ranging from bold and dramatic to feminine and gentle, they can transform any room in your home to give it the look and feel you desire.

But how?

Relax in a red living room

Shades of red work really well in the living room by adding warmth and creating a rich backdrop for white sofas and furniture or wooden coffee tables and storage units. Vary the depth of the shade to make sure your choice isn’t overpowering and select accessories in darker and lighter shades to add another dimension to the look.

Feel at peace in a pink kitchen

The kitchen is the hub of the home so it’s time to take the strawberry parfait look a step further by incorporating it in this vital space. Consider a red or pink vinyl flooring to the room for a bold look or simply use these colours more as accents through kitchen accessories such as your toaster, kettle and bin for a more subtle approach.

Fall in love with a romantic red bedroom

The colours of passion, red and pink are perfect for use in the bedroom. If you don’t want to go overboard with your look then use the colour sparingly. A red rug on cream carpet¬†or red bed linen, for example, will all provide an understated look.

If red is a bit too bold for your tastes, then expand the strawberry theme a little and opt for light pink or even purple. These colours work great as rugs but can also be introduced as scatter cushions, throws, curtains and other accessories. Pinks and reds work great with wooden furniture, and therefore choose a wooden bed frame as a perfect accompaniment.

Bathe in a perfectly pink bathroom

You don’t have to repaint the walls or change the flooring to bring the strawberry trend into your bathroom! Make a big impact with simple accessories by adding pink bathmats, towels, candles and shower curtains instead.

You can even go as far as to invest in pink-coloured toiletries, flannels and bath-mitts if the mood strikes! All that’s left then is to sit back and relax amidst a sea of pink bubbles!
