Tickled pink

Posted on Fri, 31 May 2013 by KiM

My spent all of last weekend painting her (formerly an open concept living and dining room that was a bold chartreuse/acid green) a pale pink after lots of coaxing from me. I LOOOOVE pale pink as a wall colour. It’s a bold (but not so bold) alternative to white or cream or grey. I have it in my bedroom and despite the space taking on several transformations since the pink hit the walls, it always works. As long as it’s a subtle pink that is. (P.S. A tip – I couldn’t find a pink that I thought was pale enough so I picked out the shade I liked – Benjamin Moore’s Elephant Pink – and ended up having it mixed at 25% strength). It seems to work with any accent colours too but I especially love it with white and black. My next house will likely end up all white/black but I’m thinking pink needs to be somewhere. Anyway, I did a round up of some beautiful spaces in pale pink. Happy Friday!

Pink is the best, and done well in these rooms.

The best part of painting a room pink is orange.

I never thought that pale pink would look so well as a wall colour! It looks amazing! Soft, yet makes a statement!

Oh! I so much love pale pink, especially when paired with black or dark grey! I have painted my bedroom a very dark grey and added pale pink rugs and a few accessories and I heart it!

It's a tough color to get right. I like it best in hallways. Like the hallway in Rodolphe Menudier's Paris apartment that Lisa posted last summer.

For pink throughout it's hard to beat Romea Sozzi's Milan apartment
