Pink and green is a new classic. The fun, bold combination can be seen across the interior design space, from the bedroom to the kitchen to the living room. Most recently, the winning pair was spotted in Gwen Stefani's bathroom. The singer's space is papered in pink and green feathered wallpaper, paired with white curtains, white edging, and metallic gold hardware. Interior designers swear by the wide-ranging benefits of the green and pink combination in Gwen's bathroom, and across our homes.

Most interestingly, Gwen Stefani's bathroom idea has unexpected effects on one's beauty routine. 'This dynamic duo of pink and green creates a bold and fresh look that acts as a natural beauty filter in bathrooms. Pink adds a glowy rose tint to the space while the green color corrects any excess red undertones,' says Nicole Cullum, interior designer and founder at Color Caravan.

Interior designer Niko Rasides, design director at Nicholas Anthony, believes that these aesthetic benefits make the combination perfect for a colorful bathroom specifically. He states: 'Pink is known to have a subtle flattering effect on the skin tone, making it an excellent choice for a bathroom setting where individuals engage in personal grooming. The combination of pink and green, when executed thoughtfully, can transform a bathroom into a sanctuary of style and relaxation.'

Less surprisingly, experts love this bathroom color scheme because it can switch up your design for an interesting and bold look. Nicole states: 'Pink and green is such a fun, playful palette that can bring a boring bathroom to life. Soft blush and deep rose are a natural pairing with organic greens because they are complimentary colors that sit opposite each other on the color wheel.'

Niko agrees about the bathroom color combination saying, 'Traditionally, bathrooms have been adorned with neutral tones to evoke a sense of cleanliness and tranquillity. However, the infusion of pink and green introduces a delightful departure from convention. Pink, with its warm and calming undertones, brings a sense of playfulness to the space, while green, reminiscent of nature, imparts a refreshing and rejuvenating feel. Together, they create a harmonious balance that is both elegant and soothing.'

He goes one step further and predicts that pink and green bathrooms will be a huge interior design trend in the coming year. Niko states: 'As we look ahead to the coming year, it's evident that the pink and green color scheme, especially with a leafy pattern, is poised to gain even more popularity. The trend is a response to the growing desire for personalized and unique interior spaces that reflect individual tastes and lifestyles.'
