Millennial pink remains in heavy rotation across the design world. Pink can run the tonal gamut from soft to sprightly, which makes it an oft-referred to colorway informing the designs of everything from majestic building facades, carefully-curated interiors, and commercial hubs. We’ve tapped some of the most skilled eyes in the industry to impart their knowledge on how to chicly integrate the powerful hue into any milieu.

From Iranian mosques to Venetian hotels, Netherlandic eateries, and English nightlife fixtures, we’ve rounded up a must-see hit list of inspirational design references that employ the versatile hue and seamlessly incorporate complementary textures and colors that go with pink. Additionally, Nest Casa’s Sara Colombo lends her design prowess and cultivated eye to the design analysis of these dreamy abodes!

Interior

These three projects underscore the fact that color remains one of the most dominant forces in our general perception of architecture. Renowned design firm Drake/Anderson, led by award-winning designers Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson, creates sophisticated interiors that exude luxury, refinement, and a dash of unexpected eclecticism. Their project focuses on shades of pink elevated by a carefully-curated interplay of textures and fabrics. 

Kim Haddou and Florent Dufourcq’s project, for its part, incorporates an artful score of more subtle colors that go with pink, including neutral hues and a range of greys.

The office of renowned French model and aristocrat, Ines de la Fressange, epitomizes contemporary chic. Modern art featuring vibrant, splattered paint and a myriad of floral arrangements anchor this unique room, which epitomizes a space fit for a style icon.

This reminds me of a chair that Coco Chanel herself would approve of … and that mirror!

This interior caught my eye as a captivating example of the use of form, color, and material in very subtle ways with a very sophisticated and powerful outcome.

Architecture

Although historic buildings of significance typically conjure images of dark, muted shades and staid milieus, these pink buildings introduce a striking palette of pink that is anything but dull. In fact, “Millennial Pink,” which remains a directive force in the fashion sphere and across pop culture at-large, also cemented its presence across built structures of storied cultural importance. Case in point? The Hawa Mahal palace in India — Jaipur’s most distinctive landmark — which has a delicately-honeycombed facade that combines pink sandstone with a terracotta hue that is largely symbolic of the heritage of the city. Iran’s Nasir al-Mulk Mosque, for its part, also introduces a kaleidoscopic range of colors that go with pink vis-à-vis its stained-glass windows, which rely on electric green, purple, yellow, and red to present a glorious interplay of light and color. Finally, Hotel Danieli in the heart of Venice channels both muted and deep, rich shades of pink as well as elements of gold for a pairing that evokes the opulence and elegance synonymous with Italy.

Hawa Mahal

I have seen this building in person on a trip to Jaipur years ago, and the intricacies of the architecture combined with the pink hue are so incredibly beautiful.

Nasir al-Mulk Mosque

I find this particular mosque intriguing with its unimaginable number of intricate tiles and patterns combined with the copious amounts of stained glass… such beauty and definitely on my wish list of places to visit.

Hotel Danieli

An iconic building in Venice that transports you back in time in a city that seems surreal in its beauty and elegance.

Commercial

The color pink is the result of a red and white mixture, which makes it both vibrant and calm at the same time. It is exactly because of these two qualities that the color makes for a versatile décor solution. The Streetfood Club Restaurant in the Netherlands envelops its patrons in a whimsical pastel palette with its jungle-themed atmosphere, while the Glossier Flagship in New York refers to much softer iterations that underscore the use of the hue as a new neutral. Finally, Annabel’s legendary nightclub in London lures a louche set and possesses one of the most iconic powder rooms in the world. The opulent, pink-on-pink room has pink onyx washbasins carved in the shape of oyster shells, hints of gold swans, and a carpet of silk roses in pale pinks.

It was the carpeting that caught my eye at first, but the mixology of vibrant pinks throughout gives this space major personality.

Glossier Flagship

At the insistence of my 12-year-old daughter, I ventured to the Glossier Flagship (in the pouring rain) on my last trip to New York with a shopping list in hand. Climbing the pink staircase to the sales floor, I was immediately immersed in a powerful brand experience successfully executed through a retail interior. I left with a full shopping bag and a better understanding of this cult brand.

Annabel’s London

Eclectic, Eccentric, and over-the-top are the first three adjectives that come to mind. But it works, and the bathrooms are nothing short of fabulous!
