If you’re one of the few people who’ve not heard of The Pink House blog and its creator, Emily Murray, there’s a very good chance you’ve seen pictures either on Instagram or in Grazia, Glamour, The Times, Good Homes, the Evening Standard, Stella magazine…
After moving from Edinburgh to an Edwardian house in a particularly leafy part of south London, Emily’s signature pink door (in Farrow & Ball Nancy’s Blushes) and the meticulously – and hilariously – documented makeover of her house has won her heaps of awards. The room reveals! The before and after pics! The long-suffering Pink House Husband! It’s all there and it’s all wonderful.
Being honest, we wanted an excuse to showcase some amazing pics of Hayford & Rhodes floral design combined with Pink House interior design, so here you are: Some amazing pics of Hayford & Rhodes floral design combined with Pink House interiors… Enjoy!
EM: “I renamed this ‘Kitschmas’ because of the wonderfully over-the-top fabulous tree decorations (bright pink flamingos anyone?!) provided by Amara Living.”
The pinkness was taken to an even pinker level by the huge bountiful and voluptuous roses that we supplied for this shoot, which we added to the already pink-tastic tree. The colours really popped against the backdrop of the Farrow & Ball Hague Blue walls.
EM: “We gave my new year’s eve festivities a wild woodland feel. Malin Black wallpaper from Sandberg’s OAS collection partnered with from Farrow & Ball’s Calamine added to the textured, botanical and magical feel… And my favourite thing was the pink Snowberry wreath adorning my (obviously) pink front door. It had an incredible ‘wow’ factor and I would have it on my door permanently if I could.”
Hayford & Rhodes layered the table design using crisp white Eucharis, Daucus, pink Snowberry, plummy Scabius, dried Hydrangeas (one of our signature flowers) and an abundance of roses. Planted cabbages and globe artichokes to added density at the bottom of the display, and we cut out the middle of the artichokes to create living tea-light holders, casting a warm glow over the room.
Bedroom Redesign & Reveal
EM: “I went from having a mattress on the floor to the bedroom of my dreams. I designed the bed myself with Hypnos, and fitted a shell-pattern inspired carpet (pink, of course). I justified the House of Hackney lampshade as a self-gift for my 40th birthday. Not even sorry.”
We sent Emily a range of orange, yellow, peach poppies, tulips, hyacinths and narcissus, to contrast against the pink and grey tones of her room, along with one of the best things we’ve ever: Miniature pink pineapples. Yes, they’re real. No, we’ve not spray-painted them. And yes, we all want them for our own bedrooms too.
