It has been the darling of recent times: Millennial pink has appeared in all walks of life from clothing, products, accessories, hair and makeup, and interiors. And these sweeter truer shades of pink are now morphing in two directions – to dusky peaches and nudes, and to soft fresh lilacs.

The Resene The Range fashion colours have a rich range of such colours, from those that are almost terracotta, to others that are the slightest whisper of pink.
Together, they create a dreamy palette that has the warm vibrancy of a desert sunset, or the faded beauty of ancient buildings.
As with millennial pink, this newer colour is not one specific colour but can be many.
Think salmon, wafer, biscuit, nude and pale coral. In combination, these colours are like a pale, glorious sunset.
The surge of smoky pink and peach into our current culture has opened the door for androgynous and adult pinks of so many shades. It’s gentle, compassionate, composed, free-spirited, nurturing and youthful.
It can be used as an accent colour or as a neutral depending on which version of the colour you choose – the muddier versions work well as neutrals.
It’s not sickly sweet, but can be sophisticated, glamorous and edgy.
In this room, using two muted peachy pinks together means the space doesn’t become overpowering.
The lighter colour, Resene Sorbet, is used as a neutral, leaving the darker colour, Resene Just Dance, as a feature wall to frame the white linen sofa.
Adding to the soft weathered look is a distressed floor of Resene Poured Milk over a Resene Rebel basecoat, sanded back in random areas, and the round side table is in the aptly named Resene Sunbaked.
