Good morning! Not many words today as I have 30 killer images for us to collectively swoon over! It’s been 3 years since I first blogged about the new trend for pink, and boy did it really take off last year, 2016 was a year of blush tones everywhere, I loved all of it and in particular when clashed against bold colours or on outside walls. There’s a lot of talk of dark jewel tones taking centre stage this year, and of course green as the new grey, will pink disappear from our radars in 2017? Who knows, I’m not tired of it yet so I have a feeling it won’t. Today I wanted to take a moment to celebrate some of my favourite pink inspirations from the last year, the ones I’ve been lusting after the most, some are harder and bolder than the blush we’ve seen so much of, some are even neon, almost dreamlike where Wes Anderson meets David Hockney! From faded-sherbet pink to ever-so-bold pink all of these spaces inspire me with major heart eyes, perhaps the Jewish deli in Berlin (image below) the most of all, I’m almost booking my flight just so that I can take up a seat at that table and never leave! I’d love to incorporate some of this boldness into the Design Soda home this year. What colours are you craving at the moment? Drop me a note in the comments below.

    I love these images sooo much Ruthie! This is right up my alley. By the way, the third last image is a coffee/lunch place called copper in Antwerp not too far from where I live! The owner used Dries Van Noten fabrics from his stock sale to make those pillow cases. Amazing space 🙂

      Hey lovely, yes there are some fabulous ones in there aren’t there? I could seriously live within several of those shots! Oh, wow is it really? Another reason Antwerp is high up on my list, we watched a documentary on Belgian architecture over the weekend and I think we’ve decided on Milan in February and Antwerp during sunnier months. It must be great inspiration for both you and Dieter, will definitely have to ask you for tips ?
