Colour trend: peony pink
July 7, 2023
Power to the people, peony pink is this seasons hottest shade. Whether you’re painting your bathroom, choosing a new handbag or buying a fresh lipstick – poppin’ pink is the way forward.
The vibrant hues provide an instant pick-me-up and it works well with a huge assortment of other shades making it the ideal colour for accessories, furniture and other extras to add to your existing scheme. This upcycled sideboard is a great example of this as it fits in wonderfully with the powder blue walls and flooring.
Upcycled sideboard, mirror, radiator & vase painted in Capri Pink; walls painted in Louis Blue & flooring painted in Louis Blue & Greek Blue chalk paint, all £26.95 per ltr, Annie Sloan. For similar lamps, try Pooky.

Go bold with this gorgeous take on peony pink, in the form of Fuchsia matt emulsion (£20 per 2.5 litres, Dunelm). It’s ideal for a feature wall in a living room or study, and brings out the vibrance in your accessories, too. See below how the green from the plants pops out against the backdrop of pink.
If popping paint isn’t your style, create a wallpaper feature wall with this gorgeous design of Foxglove Garden wallpaper (£88 per 10m roll, MissPrint). The pink and green combination is beautiful and we think it would look fantastic in an en-suite bathroom. Find plenty of bathroom wallpaper inspo with our guide.

Wall tiles are unique and can add a hotel chic vibe to your bathroom. As seen in the example below, opting for a bold statement tile colour like these Cliq ceramic wall tiles in hot pink (£77.04 per sqm, Topps Tiles), helps the fixtures and fitting like mirrors, lights and basins pop out. The pink also pairs perfectly with the plants if you’re a fan of foliage in your wet room!
Peony pink furnishings and accessories
If redecorating is a bit further than you’d like to go at the moment, investing in some new accessories is a great way to bring the peony pink trend into your home.
Add vibrance into your neutral living space with a bright pink sofa set, or bring in some popping new cushions and throws to revive an old settee. In the kitchen, transform the space by simply adding a new juicer or tableware set. Even a new light fitting in the stunning peony pink shade will leave a lasting impact on the room.
