1 Pink and blue kitchen
Ben Sage Photography @bensagephotography
Making a case for strong opposites, cabinets in Blush by Little Greene create a feminine statement, but are offset by a contrasting island in Kigali by Paint & Paper Library . Designer Lizzie Green updated the existing cabinetry with new plywood fronts and oak-backed handles to make use of this property's existing carcasses.

2 Pink and green kitchen
Inspired by Wes Anderson's iconic cinematography, this family kitchen fuses a playful blend of vivid green, yellow and pinks. The playful pantry is in fact two-tone: lined with a pastel shade to offset the coral-hued exterior.

3 Pale pink kitchen
Experiencing commitment issues? A soft pastel with a blend of wood is a clever way to tip a toe into the pink kitchen trend. And note how the stained oak units here are reflecting in the flooring, making the effect more harmonious than statement.

4 Pink tiled walls
Remember that you don't have to go down the route of coloured cabinetry to achieve a pink kitchen. This space designed by 2LG Studio features walls clad in powder pink tiles from worktop to ceiling, drenching the space in soft colour and covering off the need for a separate splashback .

5 Pink kitchen island
Can't settle between navy or green alongside your conversation-starting pink kitchen island ? This set-up by deVOL makes a case for mixing both, with handmade tiles in varying shades of emerald green and a co-ordinated painted wall setting the scene, whilst dark cabinets play the role of the reliable and serious understudy.

6 Pink country kitchen
Opting for a traditional shaker-style kitchen dipped in Sulking Room Pink by Farrow & Ball , interior designer Brooke Copp Barton explains: 'I felt the pink units brought a calmness and serenity to the space and perhaps a touch of the unexpected.' The walls are New White , also from the British paint specialist.

7 Mellowing out with yellow
As demonstrated here, a pop of pink doesn't always have to be the star of the show. 'Light and pastel colours are a great way to keep a space fairly neutral but also create a romantic and airy space that is inviting and looks great in any light and weather,' explains Herringbone Kitchens founder William Durrant.

8 Pink flooring
Another way to temper austere cabinetry is to have a little fun with flooring. These porcelain tiles add an immediate sense of softness and spiritedness to a family kitchen.

9 Colour-drenched pink kitchen
Making a grand statement (in an equally grandiose setting), this rose-hued space takes in the skirting boards and woodwork to dramatic effect. Green, pink's favourite counterpart, is also incorporated by way of a luxuriant marble splashback around the cooker. Brass hardware tops this elegant space off.

10 Pink & burgundy pairing
A lesser-seen but elegant combination is a rich bordeaux red contrasted with the palest of pinks. Topped with a light worktop and vintage brass hardware, this mix would be well-suited to a period property on any scale.

11 Pink walled kitchen
By now you've probably discerned that pink and navy blue is a popular pairing. This contemporary kitchen doesn't employ any pink cabinetry, but a soft, plaster-like wall that softens the clean and modern design to perfection.
12 A pink kitchen pantry
If others in the household can't be persuaded on the merits of a pink kitchen, then a standalone pantry is surely a fair compromise – and a feel-good one at that.

13 Pink kitchen with warmed-up with walnut
Pale pink is already a cocooning shade, but it is cosied up further when placed next to walnut cabinets. In this setting, pastel square tiles make for a warming splashback, lending a softness to the sharp lines created by the plywood units.

14 Pink wallpaper kitchen
Keeping cabinetry neutral and layering the fun up the walls is another way of tapping into this colourful trend. Jamie Watkins, founder of Divine Savages, who designed this print for his own kitchen, says: 'I fell in love with a marshmallow pink tile and added a neutral warm timber top to keep the look warm and grounded. It makes for an unexpected space that invites you in to come and have fun.'

15 Pink splashback
For uniformity, a continuation of plywood can be used along the walls as a splashback – and also as shelving as evidenced here. Pluck's aptly named 'Ruskin Blossom' laminate is pressed onto birch plywood to achieve the look.

16 Pink-lined cabinets
Olive & Barr
The inside of this versatile cabinet echoes the island of this beautiful kitchen, adding a shot of coordinated delight when left open. The dark units are Railings by Farrow & Ball , contrasted with the brand's Pink Groud .

17 Pink kitchen with bare plaster walls
In this stunning project by Gresford Architects, a raw plaster wall makes for a sublime backdrop to the sugary cabinets, which are rose-coloured formica Plykea fronts on cost-friendly IKEA surfaces. The fabulous Smeg fridge in mint green adds a further retro twist to this unconventional space.

18 Palm Springs-inspired kitchen
With the previously pink interiors at London hotspot Sketch as a creative cue, the cook Gizzi Erskine enlisted interior design studio Bureau Design to create a quirky but highly functional open-plan pink kitchen that takes in an exposed brick wall painted in Confetti by Little Greene .

19 Pink utility room

20 Pink wall cabinets
'Choosing contrasting coloured wall cabinets draws the eye upwards,' explains a designer at Custom Fronts, 'heightening the space and creating an element of surprise and interest.' Indeed this dusky rose shade in combination with brown oak is on the right side of earthy, warm and neutral.
