Pairing colours that complement one another is nothing new to us as human beings. We only need to consider colour theory to be immersed in how primary and secondary colours can be used to form classic colour combinations. Perhaps the most timeless of all is green and pink. Opposites on the colour the wheel, these two colours are complimentary and are, quite literally, a match made in heaven.
Going back in time, many of us will remember the sometimes terrifying use of avocado green and salmon pink in 1970s homes. In many ways, this intense overuse of green and pink led to a surge in clinical whites and colourless, characterless interiors. But in the past decade, we have all become more experimental, and areas previously dominated by neutrals are being reimagined with colour. This combined with the evolution of porcelain and ceramic tiles means there is an abundance of choice, including in green and pink porcelain tiles.
From deep forest greens to soft baby pinks; there are three reasons why we’re seeing a revival of this classic colour combination, and why green and pink tiles is our favourite tile trend for 2021.
Creating calmness and serenity
After a year filled with uncertainty, many of us are craving comfort and stability. Cool, plaster pinks are warm and soothing on the eye and provide a comforting escapism. Offset that softness with fresh, leafy sage or deep, rich emerald, and a space is transformed by colour contrasts that draw you in and create a sense of tranquillity.
Whether you’re incorporating pink porcelain tiles with bold and vibrant shades or subtle hues of green, earthy pinks will bring balance and calm to your space. Some tiles incorporate shades of pink and green to remarkable effect. Our Shard Green Porcelain Tiles for example feature accents or ‘shards’ of pale pink that both adds drama and tones down the intensity of colour for a relaxing feel.
Bringing the outdoors in
Adorning our interiors with indoor plants is a craze that continues to grow and flourish. This desire to nurture and care for plants, forming an indoor refuge from stress, has inspired how we decorate our walls and floors. Green is synonymous with nature and has grounding, restorative qualities, just like soft earthy pinks do. Luxury, glossy green porcelain tiles like our Amazon Green Gloss Porcelain Tiles or our serene green Pigment Sage Gloss Ceramic Tiles are perfect for creating spaces that encapsulate rural landscapes.
Making a statement
For those looking to make a statement, the green and pink tiles trend can be utilized to great effect. Not only are there countless colours, tones and shades all designed for delivering different impacts, there are also various formats, shapes and textures to play with. Don’t be afraid to be daring and try larger formats with smaller brick tiles or even hexagons. And with so many textures and patterns available, your green and pink tiles combination can be as striking and bold as you like. Go retro with glossy green Onyx Nouveau Jade Gloss Tiles and hexagon Zappa Pink Porcelain Tiles or minimalist with Oska Powder Pink Matt Porcelain Tiles. Making a statement in your home couldn’t be more on-trend than with green and pink tiles.
