"There's a softness to this cream, with a touch of red, that attracts me. That bit of warmth makes it more uplifting. It's like a blossom in spring. I would do it in a bedroom with olive, navy, or eggplant. It's gentle and clean and optimistic — a fresh way of being Zen." —Brett Beldock. Delicacy 11-2409 by Pantone.
Picking Perfect Pink Paint I believe that pink can be a beautiful wall color when chosen well. Unfortunately, it’s a difficult color to get right and the results are often more Pepto than pretty. Here are several of my favorite pink shades along with the reasons I love them and a few suggested uses. I’ve also included several examples of the colors in actual rooms.
"I can't tell you how many compliments I've had on this color. It looks like taupe on the chip, but it actually has an amethyst undertone when it's up on the walls. I love it with gorgeous textured silks and velvets and antique silver mirrors. It makes everything soft and sensuous. I haven't tried it, but I think I'd look good naked in that room." -Hal Williamson Benjamin Moore Driftscape Tan 2106-50 - HouseBeautiful.com
"I used this pink in my first studio apartment in New York. There was something about the combination of this color and the afternoon light pouring through the floor-to-ceiling windows that was so calming. You might think a pink apartment would scream 'girly girl,' but the gray undertones make it more sophisticated and grown-up." —Ashley Whittaker Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell Pink Ground 202 - HouseBeautiful.com
