Perfectly Pink Design
To go along with the Valentine's theme on the blog this week, I wanted to share some pink interiors that have inspired me lately. I don't ever really decorate with the color pink that much, but there is something about the soft blush shade of pink that is so feminine and elegant [and sometimes every girl needs a little pink in their life]. The right shade of pink in a room can be beautiful on the walls or as an accent pillow or even a velvet covered settee, so don't be afraid that it's too girly. I frequently get asked a lot of questions about what paint colors to use from friends and family whenever they are painting anything, so I have gathered the best paint colors that I have used in pink tones because it can be so tricky picking out the right shade. But don't forget to always always paint a sample swatch first before you paint the whole room and see the color in natural lighting.
Wild Aster from Benjamin Moore is the best pink because it is very subtle and has a lot of taupe in it.
Powder Blush from Benjamin Moore has a little more pigment to it and is perfect for a little girls room.
Bare Pink from Pittsburgh Paints is a delicate and light pink that has a little peach in it which I love. It would be pretty in a powder bath.
Ballerina Pink from Benjamin Moore is a pale pink with a hint of lavender in it so it has a more sophisticated look.
Reverie Pink from Behr has a similar tone to Wild Aster, but with more of a pink tone. An ideal pink when matching fabrics in a room because it's true to the hue.
Milk Glass Pink from Martha Stewart is a delicate and light pink that would be beautiful in a feminine dining room or kitchen.
Old Fashioned Pink from Behr is a very pure pink with a little coral in it that would actually be perfect to paint furniture in because it may be a little strong for a whole room.
Tutu from Martha Stewart is a glamorous pink and a bit old-hollywood that I would love to see in a beautiful walk-in closet or bathroom, and it would make a pretty baby nursery.
