Design & Décor | Colour Inspiration: Conch Pink


Prev1 of 9

01 Shell cabinet with pink interiorImagine the coral pink interior of an exotic conch shell washed up on a Bahamian beach and you’ve got the inspiration for this week’s article. It’s a colour that is luscious and full of life yet warm and sophisticated. I will admit it might not be the easiest colour to get right — be careful of using it on walls in north-facing rooms (in the Northern Hemisphere), for example, as the cooler light could work against it. A smaller room that receives lots of natural light might be a better candidate for its tropical charms; or perhaps just use it in smaller decorative touches and accessories if you’re not ready to embrace it fully.

In the meantime, enjoy the inspiration of this selection of rooms which show how wonderful this exotic pink can look and where I think it’s fair to say that you would definitely want to ‘stop awhile’ . . .

She studied French and History of Art & Architecture in Trinity College in Dublin before moving to London to work first in publishing and then in Marketing & PR. After a move to Edinburgh, she decided to heed a creative urge which had been tugging at her sleeve for a number of years, and she retrained as an interior designer. While studying interior design, Louise discovered a love of pen and ink with watercolour illustration, which she now does alongside her interior design work. Louise runs her interior design company, Amalfi White Living, which offers her clients a fresh, elegant style, mixing vintage and modern pieces for a luxurious yet relaxed look. She dreams of renovating a white house by the sea.
