I Pink I Love You: 9 Colours We Heart For Valentine’s Day & Beyond

It doesn’t take an arrow-slinging cherub to know that heartfelt reds and crush-worthy pinks play a big part in Valentine’s Day. But beyond the annual holiday of love and friendship, this romantic palette can help create a certain mood in a space and convey emotion the other 364 days of the year too.

You can’t blame us for feeling a bit amorous. Ever since Benjamin Moore named soft, airy First Light 2102-70 as its Color of the Year, everything’s coming up with rose-coloured pastels.

First Light made some of us go all heart-eyes emoji. Others just haven’t felt the love for First Light’s particular shade of pink and would prefer to… ahem, explore other options.Either way, our in-store paint experts are here to help with design ideas, colour matching and tips on choosing the perfect palette to make every day feel like Valentine’s Day.

So, let’s put two heart-shaped hands together for these unabashedly romantic paint colours:
