What happens when design powerhouse Jake Arnold joins forces with LA fashion maven Chrissy Teigen? You get the most stylish collaboration of the year (and the year is very nearly out, so there is a lot of competition).
Jake, for the uninitiated, is the British-born, now Californian interior designer of Chrissy Teigen’s home where she lives with her husband, Grammy award-winning singer John Legend. In late 2020, he shared a glimpse into the couple’s chic home, including their living space, which is filled with rust-colored soft furnishings and an abundance of marble.
While it may have seemed hard to top this neutral room (pictured further down the article), Jake’s latest post has done just that. Sharing a photo of Chrissy and John’s bathroom, Jake Arnold teaches you how to turn pink bathroom ideas into a striking reality that will stay in style long after the Barbiecore trend wavers.
‘Pretty in pink,’ Jake said when sharing the photo – and we’re certainly inclined to agree. The dusty rose bathroom is, in itself, something to note – and is the perfect example of how to incorporate a bold color without overwhelming your space.
The designer accentuates the somewhat ‘drained’ down pink with metallic accents –seen through the gold-fringed mirror and faucet.
Perhaps the most striking feature in the space, however, is the statement marble sink that draws from the similarly-toned marble floor ideas to make it appear as though the material is flowing throughout the room.
This marble complements the pink walls effortlessly – creating a blushing, radiant space that is as luxurious as it is beautiful – and undeniably soothing. This is Chrissy Teigen’s bathroom, after all.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s bathroom is a masterclass in pink room ideas, courtesy of one of the most talked-about designers of the moment, but it’s no surprise that the color works so well in this space.
Clara Ewart, the Head of Design at Kitesgrove (opens in new tab), explains that pink is the perfect color for a bathroom because, despite its vibrancy (even in dusty shades such as Chrissy’s), it is soothing enough to work in the most intimate room of your home.
‘Pink and purple are warm, inviting shades used to create timeless interiors. Shades can vary hugely from blush to electric pink and lavender to deep violet,’ Clara says.
‘The varying tones can be used to make a strong impact through bold accessories or as a backdrop for a warm, comforting space such as a pretty pastel bedroom.’
With these benefits (and Chrissy’s nod of approval), we’re quite sure pink will continue to top color trends long into the New Year. And we’re starting with the bathroom.
