There is just something so charming about using Farrow and Ball paints in your home. Made traditionally using only the finest ingredients, the paints are beautifully rich and come with a finish like no other. Unsurprisingly, when they announce new shades, it doesn't go past quietly. In 2018, several new hues joined the classic collection, one of them being the adored Sulking Room Pink.

It's described as a powdery muted rose hue, and it effortlessly became the perfect alternative to the millennial pink shade that had been overtaking Instagram and people's homes in the last few years. Sulking Room Pink is undoubtedly its' grown-up sister, and its' softness finds itself so gracefully at home within any interior style or room.

Tastefully decorating with pink can feel tricky at first, but that's where the benefit of the tone of Sulking Room Pink comes in. It's soothing yet strong, making it surprisingly effortless to work with. It's a touch darker than most dusky pinks, so if you want to willingly let the colour take centre stage, you most certainly can. We'd recommend keeping the furniture and decor alongside it neutral in colour, which in turn will also provide your space with a serene feel.

Paint skirtings and door frames with School House White, the perfect complementary shade to the hue, or if you are considering wallpaper, the Morris & Co Meadow Sweet pattern in Rose/Olive is a lovely choice. It introduces such stunning, delicate detail that uplifts and enhances but doesn't overcrowd.

Can't get enough of the pink? Us either. The Soho Home Dolly Chair in Blush is the optimal cosy solution to a vacant corner or dressing table. The Woman Head with Pink Turban vase is a wonderful statement decor piece to sit upon a cabinet or shelf. Don't be afraid to use the hue as a backdrop to some more statement pieces, either. The Juliana Chandelier is a true delight from Soho Home and will undoubtedly bring a magical touch to your home.

That's the remarkable thing with Sulking Room Pink; it's versatile and flattering. It works magnificently within layers, so don't be afraid to introduce other tones of pink into a scheme; the result is just as joyful as it is sophisticated, making it fitting for living rooms or bedrooms.

We all know it's the finishing details that usually make all the difference. Lay the Asceno Stripe Printed Silk Eye Mask across your pillows for an inviting touch and fill your room with the gentle floral notes of the Rose Water Bassett Diffuser. Classic, delicate and delightfully uplifting, this is one of those scents that will have every guest eagerly questioning the origin.
