It’s Week 3 of the Paintzen Color Series, and since we welcomed springtime this week, it seems appropriate to feature a color evocative of fresh floral bouquets: PINK!
Pink, in all its wonderful shades, has been on the rise. You may remember last year’s obsession with Millennial Pink, a combination of blush pink and salmon, that was seen everywhere from fashion runways to furniture stores. In 2016, Pantone surprised the world and released not one, but two Colors of the Year, one of which is the universally loved Rose Quartz.
Pink has been a staple in home design and decor for quite some time. Paintzen professional painters have used pink in everything from baby nurseries to funky, feminine dorm rooms to pastel powder rooms and luxurious living rooms in shades of mauve; pink makes its way into many home paint palettes.
Pink is a popular shade for those looking to achieve the Modern Farmhouse look, specifically PPG Paints Tangy Taffy & Sunstone, as well as anyone looking for a soft, warm, welcoming wall color. Although it falls under ‘reds,’ our color consultants believe pink can act as a versatile neutral. Shades like Warmstone and Touchable can easily be used as a warm and cozy base shade. Play up the pink undertones by added shades of darker pink or deep reds.
Some paler shades with purple undertones, like Ancestral or Gray Whisper, make great options for bedrooms. These colors pair well with cooler colors, like silvery-white and gray, and can create a space that feels serene. Love this look? Paintzen interior painters and color consultants can help you choose the perfect shade of pink to paint your bedroom.
Just last year, Paintzen partnered with the design team at Laurel & Wolf to repaint JustFab’s studio in the shade of pale pink associated with their brand. Paintzen also added the color to some corkboard where the team planned to hang artwork and display some merchandise. The look was sophisticated and glamorous.
Before, “[the room] was a working area of our office with desks and computers in it for the fashion and tech teams,” said Kira Cohen, JustFab’s Director of Public Relations. “Now, it’s used for everything from meetings with bloggers and product shoots, to brainstorming ideas for future collections.
