Even if you are not considering painting your home or anything within it pink, come behold the feminine, gentle, romantic possibilities. Bet you have a way to live with a little of this scrumptiously delicious hue. Interior designers in the know have been using pink forever in schemes for clients, but we’re so often shy about pink. It’s not just for a little girl’s room, after all. Lovely Pink Paints is here with ideas, photos and resources.

Middleton Pink No. 245 (Farrow & Ball)
Did you notice the haint blue on the porch ceiling of the Charleston home above? Deep sighhhhh! I am dying to find a place here at the new house to use pink – even if I paint the interior of a closet…wouldn’t that be dreamy? It could also cover the closet’s ceiling like in this guest room:
If the doggie does not convince you black and white are pink’s best friends, I’m not sure what will!
Have a vintage side table or wardrobe that would transform with this color?
Not sure if it was mixed at a reduced saturation (above) or if photography has washed out the look of the color.
European pinks have a romance about them and can read so soothing. Here are some possibilities to consider:
To properly be in the mood for PINK, take this enchanting tour of Sophie Conran’s home…you’ll thank me!
My pointe shoe collection brings to mind a classic European peachy pink – it’s not too cloying and not sexily nude.
If what you’re after is a warmer blushy pink with brown undertones, here’s a possibility:
Valspar Bare Neccessity
This pink reminds me of an unforgettable office spied in Architectural Digest:
Remember this space with the handpainted de Gournay wallcovering we all dream of living inside of?
This dyed silk wallcovering is called Portobello in Gentleman’s Pink.
I would love to view this covering in person since it always looks different depending on the editing and photography. On de Gournay’s site, the pink looks much muddier:
Gentleman’s Pink seems reminiscent of this color from Sherwin-Williams:
That more subdued pink above reminds me of the toile in this bedroom from MILIEU:
Such a unique combination with lavender walls!
Benjamin Moore First Light
If you’re after an understated, subtle, pale pink – consider this one from BM. In fact, as a passionate devotee of white paint colors, it makes practical sense for this color to actually be included with my favorite whites. Sample it HERE.
Here’s what Benjamin Moore says of First Light:
“A refreshing alternative to white or beige, this soft, airy pink flatters any space and plays well with other colors.”
For another delicate pink possibility from Sherwin-Williams, try this:
It’s lovely to see how it behaves with green accents:
Here are more soft pinks, this first one more muddy and warm:
Salmon Pink Room Inspiration
Pink Ground No. 202 by F&B
Farrow and Ball says this dusty pink started out as a delicate wallpaper background.
“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 its Complementary White, Wimborne White, or the warmer shade of Great White on the woodwork for a unique look.”
