Pleasantly Pink

1. Champagne Bottle Tray

What was once just a hue beloved by young millenials has become an of-the-moment color trend in everything from clothing to furniture to decorations. With a range of shades, pink can be used as a more bold neutral to set the base for a room, or, in brighter hues, as striking pops of color to add playfulness. Here are our favorite picks of this versatile color, perfect for setting the tone of summer.

From Benjamin Moore’s “Color Trends 2018,” Pleasant Pink is a nod to the past but in a more subtle, genderless tone. As a wall color, it pairs well with grey or chocolate brown accents which tone down any girly vibe, and it is a flattering, soft pink that casts a beautiful neutral backdrop. This pink would make a killer base for a sexy, soft bedroom or a base for fabulous art and accents in a living room. Do not fear the pink, gentlemen!

My pink paint color choice is Benjamin Moore Bashful. So very sophisticated with layers of cream, accents of gold and just a hint of gray. Truth be told … my bedroom in junior high school and high school was this pallet and it made me smile! Restful.

A sophisticated pink that adds just a touch of warmth to any room, without dominating the color palette. Combines perfectly with gray or beige tones, pastels or jewel tones, warm brass or cool silver metals, well … anything! Think of it as a neutral backdrop, but a definite step up from plain white or cream.

Calamine by Farrow & Ball; it is soft, subtle, timeless and elegant.

Our pink selection is Sherwin Williams Innocence (SW 6302). One of our furniture manufacturer’s uses a similar color for this great modern sculptural accent chair.
