Marlin Spring’s Colour of the Month: Ash Rose

Oct 5, 2018

Ash Rose

Welcome to our seventh edition of “Marlin Spring’s Colour of The Month”! We hope you were able to read September’s edition, where we explored the warm and wholesome Spiced Apple (which you can find here). As we enter the fall season, and everyone’s attention turns to deep oranges and dark neutral colours, we’re going to explore something a little different: Pantone’s Ash Rose (Pantone 17-1514 TPX). This is a dark, sophisticated blush hue we know is sure to catch your attention.

The Colour

 

Ash Rose

 

Ash Rose is a wonderful combination of pink and earthy tones, transforming this muted rosy shade into a more grounded hue. Unlike vibrant pinks, which can have a bit of a childish vibe, this colour is very simple and elegant, bringing a quiet sense of beauty and femininity to any room it’s in. The brown undertone in Ash Rose strays away from the energetic red-based pinks that we’re used to, introducing to a more restful pink hue.    

Why We Love It

Ash Rose

 

Ash Rose is a wonderful colour that shows exactly why everyone is jumping on blush-hued décor these days! Using these lighter, airier colour palettes in your home means that you’re never out of season, leaving you feeling cozy in the winter and breezy in the summer. This pantone also allows you to easily get into the pink trend that has been dominating the interior design. This dustier version eliminates the overly sweet nature of bright pinks without leaving the strong feminine energy behind.

How To Use It

When used sparingly, Ash Rose is one of those colours that can really have a great impact in your room! If you’re going for a contemporary look, we recommend getting this colour into your space with singular pieces of small furniture, throw cushions, or an accent wall in order to let this hue really pop against the vast amount of white. When used in these types of neutral spaces, Ash Rose will help you bring attention to pieces that you want to take focus, drawing the eye to specific parts of the room. As a quick tip, blush-hued colours (like Ash Rose) are a great way to quiet the stark energy of whites and bright pastels, if you’re finding them overwhelming in your space. It’s a simple detail that you’ll find makes a lot of difference!

Ash Rose is a wonderful pantone you can use to bring a sense of simple elegance to any space. It’s a colour that can either take centre stage without overwhelming the senses or help lighten dark décor!
