Katie Lydon on Incorporating a Pop of Pink

Pink may be a controversial color for some, whether in fashion or interiors. In some countries, the color of pink is associated with being girly or innately feminine; however, this is not the case throughout the world. In the 1700s, it was fashionable for men to wear jackets of purple and pink satin and this still holds true in British fashion. In Japan the color pink has a masculine association similar to the wide acceptance in European markets.

For London born designer, Katie Lydon, pink is a color she uses regularly. Lydon tells Elle Decor, “Pink is one of those colors that people shy away from sometimes, because they don’t want a room to appear too girly, but I think there are ways of using pink that really bring warmth and subtlety to a bedroom for a couple—it doesn’t have to be just for a girl’s bedroom. Pink looks beautiful with chocolate browns, grays, and woods.”

By adding a pink stone to your design you can achieve a soft, modern element that creates a dynamic palette for your space. The Palissandro Extra Marble from Aria Stone Gallery is a beautiful Italian with subtle shades of soft pink and chocolate waves with a glittering light throughout. The Onyx Kilimanjaro is unique in that during the day, the onyx has visible natural pink and red hues. And when Kilimanjaro is backlit, it emits a beautiful, rich amber glow.
