Pale Rose the new interiors color trend for 2010?

As so many of us interior folks know, fashion trends tend to be a sneak peek into interior trends. So when I opened the pre fall J.Crew catalog and saw all the "Dusty Rose" filling the pages I knew we might be on to something! The color is a more modern take on the mauve we knew from the 80's and mixed with a deep olive, it leads to a color trend for the upcoming year! I have pulled just a few images from around the web to give you an idea of what's to come!

"Rose Dust" Shoes and pink paisley top

A suede pink armoire and throw is the perfect way to add this new color

What do you think? Would you use this color in your home or just stick with a few pieces for your closet?

I do like it, though I'm not sure that I would integrate it into my space -- I cannot even wear this color, but I think it's just lovely!

Thank you for sharing this inspiration :)

I think it might be one of those colors that looks great on other people! Can't see wearing it, or living with it myself, but it's really soft.

I'm not much of a girly girl, but I think I could be converted by this.... LOVELY!!

And... so glad to be tweeting with you!! Happy to have connected.

I would mix that pink colour with darker earth colours like red and a kind of dusty orange/terracotta. I think the combination would probably have to be used in a space with lighter walls though.
