Trend Spotting: Pale Pink Walls


I have been loving all of the pale, pale pink interiors I have been spotting - and aptly just in time for Valentines Day! One of my first NYC design projects at a firm called for Benjamin Moore Opal, a subtle shell pink, in the small entry vestibule - I was unsure but once I saw the paint on the wall I was hooked! It added this warm, soft glow and was so welcoming. It was the perfect solution for a small, windowless space. 

Here are a few tips for making pale pink work and a few images for inspiration!

1} Select a dusty, earthy pink hue. These pinks will feel sophisticated and grounded - decidedly not like a nursery! My favorites are Ben Moore Opal along with Farrow & Ball Pink Ground or Calamine. 

2} Temper pink walls with accents in black, dark grays or saturated jewel tones. Darker notes will help make the space feel modern and fresh. Charcoal gray and emerald greens work especially well!

3} Keep all floors, woodwork and ceilings neutral - wood toned or white painted surfaces help create a balanced space.
