  • About the Artists

    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

  • Decorating with Pink

    March 28, 2016 1 min read

    Pink symbolises softness, sweetness, tenderness, youthfulness and innocence. It is associated with romance, friendship, nurturing, femininity, emotional love and healing, children, youth and peace. It also helps heal sadness and grief and helps bring you in touch with your feelings.

    In decorating, there are a few things to keep in mind when introducing this emotive colour to a space. 

    Firstly, soft or dusty pinks work naturally well with soft oranges, corals and caramels to make a space refreshing, so if you want to combine pink with these undertones try for lighter shades of pink. Bringing in bold complimentary colours to the space like turquoise can also help make the space less 'sappy'. Or add stronger spicier shades like persimmon for a warmer autumn look.

    When using stronger shades of pink, like blush, use it to flatter the space just as blush is meant for the face. Try pairing these shades with a classic grey for a sophisticated look, or use it to sparingly with a brown environment to ground the colour. Greens and blues also work well with pink to create a fresh spring look.
