Design Insider Kobe Pink Poetry

“Pink is a great colour for brightening up a décor and Pantone’s Colour of the Year has always been an interior trend setter. Living Coral and Farrow & Ball’s Sulking Room Pink, a dusky variation of the colour, is the ideal shade for decorative accessories and soft furnishings and complements a whole host of other colours such as grey, cream and the popular ‘spiced honey’ spectrum.” – David Harris, MD at Kobe.

Kobe’s Shantung curtain fabric features an extensive selection of 50 shades, three of which meet the Living Coral and Sulking Room Pink criteria.
