Throwback Thursday: Pink & Green

Throwback: Pink & Green

An example of a trend coming and going is the very “trendy” green and pink theme of the 80’s. Nothing screams dated more than light pink and forest green mixed together, when done the wrong way of course!

Bold walls and colourful furniture was the style in the 80’s and when that trend started to fade away, homes were stuck with pink couches and dark green walls to paint over.

Modern Update: Blush & Mint!

Softening the deep forest greens and bright corals of the 1980’s , the new take on the duo is chic and more refined. Using their pastel counterparts, mint and blush are a more youthful take on the outdated combo. Utilizing the trendy colours in accessories makes for an easy switch up once the trends start to fade- and doesn’t leave you with a pink couch and green wall to paint over!

Rather than going with a full, pink couch in your living room, you can accessorize a neutral pallet with lamps, vases, artwork, and cushions. If you are looking for more of a long-term investment, opt for something a subtle (and easy to paint over!) shade such as a calming mint colour. That way you still have your feature wall, and can mix up the accessories and remain on top of the latest trends.
