I am totally loving anything blush pink at the moment (did you check out my post on THE pink sofa?! Trust me, do, I defy you not to be converted to dusky pink…), not only because it’s such a contemporary, fresh, colour, but also because I think you can introduce it successfully into so many decor styles, from modern country to industrial to Nordic cool. So, be it blush, rose, dusky or powder, there’s a pink out there for everyone…
I’m currently planning how to redecorate our kitchen/living area (you can read more about it here) and as we’re working around an existing mid-grey sofa and footstool (ours is this one from Next), I can really imagine pale pinks and a bit of monochrome working well with the charcoal grey sofa.
Here are some charcoal/blush looks I have been crushing on lately…
This one ticks all the Nordic boxes – white surfaces, pale wood, greenery and a touch of copper to warm it up.

More of a blue grey here teamed with blush, but I really like the strength of the black chair and the pinkishness of the pale oak flooring looks awesome, too.

Love the warmth the teak wood introduces to this scheme, though I would bring in some pink in place of the purple.

Again, loving the hints of copper here… the industrial style light and coffee table keep the femininity of the pink toned down a little and the touches of greenery add an interesting depth. Love the cool Zebra print cushion – find similar here – and the texture brought in by the grey shaggy sheepskin. (This one is similar.)
Grey and pink set within an all-white canvas below. The metallic finishes add a cool industrial edge to this look and keep it really modern. Find a similar style of coffee table here. Note the melange of textures in this scheme to keep it interesting aesthetically.

If you’re looking to create a blush/charcoal combination in your own home, keep the backdrop simple with walls painted pale grey, putty or white. Keep the look balanced by not overdosing on pink! A few accents here and there through your cushions, throws and accessories should be enough, just remember to strengthen things with one or two black or monochrome pieces, too. You could even bring in a little navy blue or indigo if you prefer.
If you’re shopping for pieces, try H&M Home for its wide range of metallic and monochrome pieces, such as this cushion cover or what about a pair of these curtains for that floaty, feminine feel? Would look good in a charcoal/blush bedroom.
