Steal This Look: A Plaster Pink Kitchen in Bath, England


It’s hard not to be seduced by the all-white kitchen, but for those willing to make permanent decisions, think colorful ranges and painted cabinets, the payoff can be huge. Take this pastel kitchen designed by Nicola Harding for a couple living in a renovated Georgian manse. On color, Harding explains: “We used dark colors to make large or shady spaces feel more intimate, and warm, uplifting tones to make grand spaces feel more relaxed.” With Plain English cabinets, factory lights, antiques, and the children’s artwork, the result is a gentle elegance. Here is our list of sources to match the look.

Pink and Green Color Kitchen Remodel in East London


Danish-American couple Catherine and Toke Nygaard moved from California to a Victorian townhouse in East London. Their remodel, by Mike Tuck Studio, includes the ultimate Scandi-meets-Brit kitchen made up of Plain English cabinetry, Dinesen flooring, modern British craft furniture, and an unexpected color palette (pink and green). The look as a whole works so well, it’s infectious: All of us at Remodelista are taking note. Here’s a list of the kitchen’s key elements, right down to every light fixture (there are many) and accessory.

Architects’ 12 Favorite Blush Pink Paints


One the eve of Valentine’s Day, we asked our experts from the Remodelista Architect and Designer Directory for their go-to “millennial pink” paints. Their picks range from sweet and subtle to downright seductive, and neutral enough to look at year-round. Here are their favorites.

 Brooklyn firm Made has devised a favorite custom pink: a coat of Seashell low-sheen paint by Australian company Sydney Harbour, topped with a coat of their French Wash, which creates a mottled patina look.

And finally, the brightest of the picks: Michael Howell of Howells Architecture & Design in Portland, Oregon, suggests Benjamin Moore’s Coral Reef. A little bit of this shade goes a long way; consider using it as an unexpected accent, rather than a full wall.

Steal This Look: A Swedish Bathroom with Retro Pink Tiles


It’s been a few years since we first wrote about Wanås (pronounced va-noos) Hotel, an 18th-century Swedish farmhouse-turned-boutique hotel by architect Kristina Wachtmeister, but we’re still obsessing over this perfect pink bathroom she designed. It features vintage dusty-rose tiles, bespoke furniture by Christian Halleröd, and fixtures from Swedish brand Ifö.

Below, we show you how to replicate the look (without having to commission custom furniture).
