Modern Color Palette: Black and Blush

Black is a very popular and authentic color for a lot of midcentury modern furnishings.  Black leather and dark charcoal as neutrals can act as a very sophisticated palette when paired with blush tones, white and grey.

I scoured Pinterest to find some excellent current examples of this color combination.  Not all furniture pieces shown here are midcentury modern or reproductions offered at modernclassics.com, but the images offer a great place to start when considering adding signature classics into your interior and how to pair them with blush and softer shades of rose.

An industrial modern approach to mixing blush and black with graphic pillows, some fantastic windows and a repurposed wooden spool coffee table.

Using blush as an accent color in a chair immediately softens this space.  Again, the mixture of black, grey, blush and graphic patterns.


Sometimes the pink need only enter the space through the art to offer a big impact of color and cool to this otherwise neutral black and white environment.  Shop our Noguchi Style table here.

 I love how this single blush statement chair makes the room!  Shop modernclassics.com for a swan chair reproduction here.

 Textiles and flowers are a great way to bring in this color without a big commitment.


Here again, throws, pillows and poofs add the rose element that unifies and softens the color palette of this room.


Original artwork is an excellent way to define the color palette of the room.  Let it lead the way as this piece so successfully does.

Sprinkles of black and blush throughout the interior link this otherwise white space together.  I can imagine a black Eames Lounger in the corner.  Shop here.
