The combination of pink and green has been popular for some time now and it's not hard to see why.

Pink and green are opposite each other on the colour wheel, making them complementary colours. In practice, that means if you put pink and green together, each colour will look more intense as pink brings out the greenness of green and vice versa. If you want to make your green sofa look as vibrant and colourful as possible, place a pink cushion on it.

As with most colours, pink and green will look their best together when they both colours are the same tone. Tone simply refers to how much grey is in a colour. On the colour wheel opposite, each ring is the same tone, gradually becoming more grey as the colours move towards the centre of the wheel. The best example of this in the mood board is the top left picture of the kitchen where the grey green of the cabinets ties in beautifully with the grey blush of the cushions.

If you haven't yet tried pink and green in your home, why not? It's a fun, timeless combination and the colour wheel will always agree with you.
