Best Sophisticated, Chic and Subtle Pink Paint Colors

I keep flirting with the idea of painting a wall in our home pink. Maybe the studio? A spare bedroom? It started when I stumbled upon an image of Moda Operandi’s New York showroom, and holy hand painted lovely pink de Gournay wallcovering, Batman!! Best Sophisticated, Chic and Subtle Pink Paint Colors are comin’ at ya!

Best Sophisticated, Chic and Subtle Pink Paint Colors

It is difficult to push pretty pink paint from your consciousness after you see it done so successfully. Need proof? SEE THIS.

"Days in Paris" - Limited Edition Art Print by Jessica C. Nugent in beautiful frame options and a variety of sizes. #parispink #pinkpaintcolors #palepink #pinkart
Here’s a framed fine art print in my home (Days in Paris framed print) which has a super subtle pink mood thanks to the glorious light in Paris.

On a trip to Arizona a few moons ago to visit my folks in their beautiful home where the pink sunsets are legendary, wouldn’t you know it? My mom asked “How about a shade of soft blush for our bedroom?”

Well. It appears PINK is certainly having a moment, and not just with me. Hence, it was an enthusiastic YES to my mom and to today’s Best Sophisticated, Chic and Subtle Pink Paint Colors!

But which pink?

The Trouble With Pink Tones

Even when you decide on subtle, pinks are tricky, aren’t they?

Rewind to that M’O showroom in AD…it’s the brainchild of Lauren Santo Domingo. 10 years ago, she founded Moda Operandi with Aslaug Magnusdottir.

Moda Operandi exterior in NYC.

Here’s what she told Town & Country about her process:

“I can have 20 meetings to find the right color. How many pinks did we go through when we were doing our showroom? The hours just spent on de Gournay fabrics for this space. You can’t tire me out. I will get it right.”

I love that creative spirit of perseverance! Still with me? 20 meetings and THEN a series of trials for the right pink? Oy.

Certainly it’s worth taking our sweet time with pink!

Pink Bedroom: Getting Started

Here’s how I helped my mom with her bedroom redesign project that week. First, we discussed the mood she wished to create. (Sophisticated, romantic, and timeless.)

Brene Brown inspirational quote about imperfections on hello lovely studio. #brenebrown #imperfection #personalgrowth #quotes #personalgrowth #encouragementquote

Secondly, we discussed the room’s function and what might be added, subtracted, or rearranged. (Some furniture will be moved around, a bench will be reupholstered, new art is coming in.)

Thirdly, we shopped for linens for the bed to guide our paint color journey and also art. (She found a gorgeous quiet greyed down rosy blush pink coverlet and shams, as well as a modern art piece featuring a lamb.)

Inspiration From Art & Textiles

After my mom found the perfect art (mixed media with photograph of a lamb), it got us thinking about incorporating word art on the walls–maybe a scripture verse from the psalms?

Inspirational quote and scripture for women on Hello Lovely studio. She is strong - Isaiah 40:31 She is valiant - 2 Samuel 13:28 She is fearless - Proverbs 31:25 She is enough - Psalm 46:5 #bibleverse #inspirationalquote #faithquote #scripturequote #biblequote #christianity #quotes

Finally, I brought along one of the shams to the paint department at Home Depot and searched for a pink that isn’t bright, isn’t suggestive of candy or kids’ rooms, and is going to feel chic and restful (with zero Pepto Bismol factor!). Keep reading to see that color.

After choosing the pink paint color, I brought home a sample pot and painted a large swath on her wall so she could live with it for a week or so.

Inspirational quote on hello lovely studio: be your own hero. #inspirationalquote #personalgrowth #quotes #encouragement

Then I had to return home. My folks decided to go for it and painted an entire wall pink, lived with it for a few days, decided they loved it, then painted the whole room.

Which pink paint was chosen?

Keep reading to find out. And keep in mind, while we think it’s the right pink, it might take another trial or two since even the experts require a few.

Have a favorite pink paint color you like for walls or furniture?

The pink color at Moda Operandi’s showroom reminds me of the color of the ballerina pointe shoes in my collection of soft, satiny, dead ones.

Pink Ground

Pink Ground by Farrow & Ball. This dusty pink started out as a delicate wallpaper background which was often requested as a paint color. Pink Ground, with its large dose of yellow pigment, now creates the softest blush of colour for a warm and soothing finish that doesn’t feel sugary. Rather than contrasting with a bright white, try pairing with the warmer shade of Great White on the woodwork for a unique look in your home. #pinkpaint #farrowandball #pinkground #paintcolors

Soft, Feminine Pinks Designers Prefer

Ever considered a pink ceiling? Consider what designer Jeffrey Bilhuber did.

It is definitely a pink in historic terms, but has a certain softness to it due to the inclusion of yellow pigment. Our timeless Setting Plaster creates a wonderful backdrop to antique furniture, and also works incredibly well when paired with Mahogany in a more contemporary home.  #settingplaster #farrowandball #paintcolors #pinkpaint #farrowandballsettingplaster

A Greyer Blush Tone

Here’s a warmer shade of blush pink, and I love wearing this color when my skin is tan (which only happens from a spray tan these days!).

Cameo Stone

This is the color chosen for my mom’s bedroom walls which worked beautifully with her Northern exposure and limited natural light in the bedroom.

Cameo Stone – Behr

It’s a soft, greyed down, rosy pink which may work gorgeously with lavender or light grey accents. Since we are going for a monochromatic, tone on tone look, this shade of blush pink is a bit lighter than the rosy pink bed linens.

    Yes! I’m watching pink very closely these days too. I started sloooow with a pale pink coverlet that is longer than my top comforter (pale) and it’s pale ruffles peek out longer. Rest of area pale grey and pale blue-grey. But I really like seeing the pink! Not too much though. Of your paint samples I lean towards the pale pink grey versus pink orange. Hope your mothers room turns out lovely, I think it will!! Such a labor of love. Such a sisterhood too.

      I agree about your preference for the pinks with more grey and “dusty” factor. The peachy pinks could definitely read orange depending on natural light. Your coverlet sounds perfect, and that is a smart way to bring in pink for a subtle effect. Peace to you. xox

    Ah, the depths of pink which can soothe the tired soul or enliven those whose heart needs a lift!

    Pink has so many more facets to it than the bubble-gum, sugary notes most people think of when they hear the word “pink”.

    I think pink can be as hard to get right as choosing the perfect white. But when one hits on the right one, in the right space, it becomes magical. It’s said that almost all people look better in a pink room; pink highlights and enhances everyone’s skin tones.

    I have toyed with the idea of a very subtle pink for our living room. It has gorgeous light all day long and really comes into its own in the afternoon sunshine from the huge west window. When entertaining in the evening, the soft pink would be flattering to all. My hubby says “my masculinity wouldn’t be harmed at all if the living room was pink”. πŸ˜‰

    Finding that perfect blush of pink, that often Nature seems to keep only for herself, is truly an exercise in patience, hopefully followed by complete and utter satisfaction.

    I cannot wait to see photos of your mom’s bedroom! I’m sure it’s going to be stunning!

        I’ve had a life-long love affair with pink. When I moved from Texas to Virginia for grad school, I was terribly homesick. The only cure was to spend two tearful days painting my 1950s kitchen Love Knot Pink. It was a great backdrop for my vintage Gone With the Wind poster! Now I’m looking for a warm, delicate pink to glam-up my walk-in closet. Happy to have found your article!

    Love pink but don’t have much of it in my home. However the powder room by the front foyer is done in a pink wallpaper that looks like the walls are tufted. I love it and saw an idea this week so ordered the dish cloths to use rolled up in a tray to dry hands. Am having my bedroom painted and I love the pink choices you gave us. The bedding is done in all white so don’t think anything will change except he walls and my woodwork will also be white. Can’t wait.

      And now I can’t wait! Hope you enjoy the linens! My mom’s bedroom was painted last weekend, and I’m excited to see the room come together – very exciting. Not sure if my studio is going to get some light pink or if I’ll go in a cool blue direction. πŸ™‚

    I have been wanting a pink bedroom since I was a little girl, but at that time I had to share with brothers, and later with a husband who vetoed it. Now I am single and 55 years old but haven’t been able to find a shade that wasn’t too nursery or bubble-gummy. These are PERFECT! Thank you!

      Awesome! How exciting to make one of your dreams come true in this way. My mom’s bedroom is gorgeous with Behr’s Cameo Stone – so sophisticated! xox

      Thanks so much for reading. I would definitely start with paint samples of warm pinks that you paint on the wall and decide what works best with the light exposure and your preference. Here’s a PPG color that is warm, pink, and not cloying – it is called Almost Pink, and samples ship free from Home Depot: https://rstyle.me/+OUMplJlsJ8Pdnun9J5P1hQ The thing about pink is the same color in one space can be all wrong in another. So if you arrive at a color that is ALMOST right, that’s actually good enough. You can always use it at a lower intensity by asking them to mix it at 50% or 40%, etc. for a more subtle version.

    I am happily a pink lady! When I am browsing magazines anything in pink catches my eye. When my husband and I moved into our house 25 years ago the color I chose for my living room walls, under the chair rail in my wallpapered dining room and our bedroom was Benjamin Moore’s Sunset Hill number 1212. Thankfully he approved. This color has brought me much happiness and a feeling of peace and tranquility all these years and and I continue to love it. My moldings are white and I chose a lighter shade in a soft blush for the ceilings. It is for us a very peaceful and happy home.

    We moved to a new home, when my daughter was 4. I let her choose her bedroom paint color and it was, you guessed it, PINK. Not shocking pink, but pink. Her bedroom was at the end of a hall. I remember the first time I saw the painted room. Wow… A lot brighter than I thought it would. She loved it and after I got over my initial shock, I did too. Three years later we moved to another new home. Her taste was more sophisticated by then… She chose a celery green carpet and lavender walls. πŸ™‚ (I thought you might enjoy a little comedic relief.)

      How fabulous that you allowed her to choose. I bet those lavender walls would have appealed to the child me since I always wanted a purple room. Still no pink walls here, but you never know!
