Interior decor trend: pink lamp shades and lighting

Posted by for Life

Pink lighting is the decor trend you never knew you needed. 

If you thought chandeliers were only fit for stately homes, we’ve got news for you: they’ve had one hell of an update. 

Sure, traditional chandeliers are beautiful and absolutely have their place (in Buckingham Palace, for example) but three layers of lit candles might be overkill for our rented apartments. Which is why we’re loving the look of these unique takes on the classic chandelier shape. Oh, and the best part? They’re all millennial pink.

Pink lighting is growing in popularity, something that’s not only reflected in what interior décor magpies have been searching online but in the collections from brands like Soho Home.  

From a candyfloss-like overhead light from Laura Ashley to Made’s architectural pink globe chandelier, we’ve created an elite edit of pink chandeliers and lamp shades to make your decor pop. 

  • ANACONDA Tilia shade, House of Hackney

    Pink lighting: House of Hackney

    House of Hackney is a master of all things eccentrically vintage, so it’s no surprise the cult brand has an over-the-top pink shade in its collection. 

    This Victorian-inspired shade uses a dusky pink version of House of Hackney’s ANACONDA print, which features entwined serpents. 

    It is made from cut-velvet, which is an elevated technique based on classic damask fabrics, and is crafted by hand in the UK.

    Shop ANACONDA Tilia shade at House of Hackney, £375

  • Tiffany lampshade, BeauVamp

    Pink lighting: BeauVamp

    This made-to-order, handwoven silk lampshade comes in many pretty pastel shades, but we have particularly fallen for the coral pink. 

    The double layer of candy pink and peach tassels creates a two-tone look, because frankly, why settle for one rose hue when you can have three?

    BeauVamp is an independent British business that has been running since 2006, jumping off the back of the upcycling and vintage trends.

  • Juliana Chandelier, Soho Home

    Stylish pink chandeliers: Soho Home Juliana Chandelier.

    As anyone who has ever stepped into a Soho House knows, the global members club has serious style. So, considering this beauty hangs in Dumbo House in Brooklyn, New York (which has to be one of the coolest areas in, well, the world), we think it’s good enough for our homes. 

    Crafted from Murano glass, each chandelier features dozens of rose-tinted, scalloped glass tubular sections which are mouth-blown and hand-finished by skilled artisans in Venice. Oh, and polished with angel tears, obviously.

  • Dusty Rose chandelier, Wandalust

    Pink lighting: Wandalust

    We love the soft silhouette that the silky tassels on this chandelier creates, giving a boudoir update to the light’s usual shape. And, while we are die-hard fans of the dusty pink version, this design is super versatile and comes in three different sizes and a range of colours (including a cool dip-dye).

    Each shade is handmade to order in the UK, so not only can you make sure your chandelier measures up to exactly what envisioned, you’ll be supporting a small, British business too.

  • Pink globe chandelier, Made

    Pink lighting: MADE

    This beautiful Made creation echoes the shape, height and multi-layered appearance of a traditional chandelier but with a fresh twist. 

    At the centre is a base of brushed brass, from which the unusual blush pink glass globes protrude, casting light at different angles around the room.

    Made recommends showcasing it in your hallway to wow your guests as soon as they arrive, and we have to agree.

  • Blush Feather Cloud, Laura Ashley

    Pink lighting: Laura Ashley

    How dreamy is this candy floss take on a chandelier? Laura Ashley is known for its whimsical prints in the fashion world, and this pretty light installation shows that the brand’s interior collection has been given a big dose of whimsy too. 

    Covered in fluffy feathers, this light gives off a lovely, soft glow which would be perfect for your bedroom. 

    Shop Blush Feather Cloud at Laura Ashley, £26.60
