The Best Pink Paint Colors

Orange isn’t the new Black anymore – pink is. 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. We’ve become a society obsessed with color, and maybe it’s because colors can embody our emotions and cultural movements.

In 2016, Pantone surprised the world and named pink as one of their Colors of the Year! So here are the best pink paint colors according to Paintzen!

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.

What exactly makes this pink so different from the rest? According to New York Magazine, this hybrid of rose and beige is the first pink that’s fully realized as androgynous, meaning it’s attractive and accessible to all audiences and age groups.
