Pretty In Pink


Today is the big day... the release of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie!

The much-anticipated film has led to Barbiecore references everywhere. This and the popularity of pink in Maximalism, has led to shades of pink popping up everywhere and have proven to be stunningly diverse and more versatile than ever.

Pinks compliment neutrals and even bolder colours equally, be it furniture pieces or soft furnishings plus they coordinate with other pink accents, whether it’s a plant, an artwork, or a statement bedspread.

Abode2 takes a look at some pristine examples of how to take advantage of this new neutral

Tribeca Green

Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Tribeca Green offers an incredible residential experience from the timeless exterior to the reimagined interiors by the acclaimed firm. Tribeca Green’s stylish residences, many of which have floor-to-ceiling corner windows overlooking Teardrop Park and the Hudson River, are enhanced by tailored amenities and unparalleled services. Designers Dylan Stilin and Andrew Bowen of  ASH Staging created a warm, inviting atmosphere where guests are welcomed to apartment 10E by a living room with pink-painted walls. The living room is decorated with metallic rose gold accents and bold contemporary artwork while a deep blue velvet sofa by Ginny Macdonald compliments the pink and completes the sense of relaxation and a connection of calmness.
