We’ve seen how zesty shades, glimmers of jewel, and neutral colours are key to this year’s colour trends: but let’s not forget about those rulers of rose, pink and red.

Design expert Christine Chang Hanway (editor for Remodelista, a celebrated resource for interior designers) suggests that summer 2013 is certainly a time to think pink. Neutral palettes are very fashionable and these can be highlighted perfectly with dusky pinks or salmon colours. But don’t be fooled by their gentle exterior – pretty pastels can be striking, too. For example, a trend known as ‘colour blocking’ is extremely popular at the moment. This bold technique utilises clashing colours to create an eye-catching look. For ‘colour blocking’ interiors in summer 2013, Hanway advises that ‘Pastel pinks, orange and a bit of fluorescent coral combine well.’

When it comes to kitchen cabinetry, Cinder Rose is a great choice: a lovely, rosy pink with just a hint of yellow, this paint will bring plenty of life and warmth to north-facing rooms. Kitchens with plenty of natural light will bring out the best in the shade. Pair with other accent colours – vibrant reds or corals – as Christine Chang Hanway suggests; or, if you’d like a more understated look, try contrasting with grey. An elegant grey like Farrow & Ball’s Charleston Gray or Dove Tale would work well: the pink will bounce off this colour, creating a truly chic kitchen with a hint of sparkle.
