There are few color combinations more pleasing to my eye than that of pale, blush pink and rich, inky black. I recently completed a master bathroom for a client in this color scheme—matte black clawfoot tub, walls painted in Farrow & Ball's Calamine—and I'm having a hard time not moving in myself. Not convinced about this palette? Read on for inspiration and a few tips to make it work for you.

Pink + Black In Your Home
Like this look? Here are some tips to make it work in your home:
• Pink and black play well with white (lots of white), grey, and timber tones. These neutrals allow this strong combo to take center stage.
• On the other hand, don't be afraid to add a bolder color. As you can see from the examples above, certain shades like teal and mustard look great with pink and black, and emerald is also a favorite add-in of mine.
• Use unequal amounts, like a pink wall with a collection of slim black photo frames, or a vast, black-stained floor with a single piece of pink furniture.
• When it comes to hardware, think warm. Bronze, brass, and copper metals look particularly good with soft pink.
