From baby pink, pale pink, to the iconic hot barbie pink, there are a million different shades to choose from. And because this colour can make such an impact, it's important to select the right shades.

If you're looking to add a vibrant touch of pink to your space without the hassle of painting walls or replacing fixtures, furniture is the perfect solution. Not only is it easy to incorporate, but it can also make a bold statement, transforming the entire mood of the room. Take a look at this set of bright pink chairs, with a more muted pink side table. It's perfectly balanced with the white and greens of the walls, floor, and plant!

If you want to add in your favourite shade of pink but in a subtle way, pair it with your neutral creams and whites in your space! How about a blush pink headboard in front of a warm white wall?

3) Farfetch - Polspotten Zig-Zag Stool

Barbie totally has an eye for shiny objects, and this sculptural lacquered stool perfectly fits her taste. This versatile piece can serve as both a stool and a side table, making it a practical and stylish addition to any space! Personally, we would style the top with a pretty white catch-all tray and add in a hint of green with a plant! Pink and green is a classic combo that you can never go wrong with.
