Tuesday Finds: No Confusion with a Pink Infusion

It’s time we take off our rose-coloured glasses and look at pink in a fresh new way.

People were once aghast at the idea of decorating with pink, fearing it was either too Pepto-abysmal or overtly frilly-pony-princess-bedroom to be used in a large living space. That’s no longer the case!

Thanks to First Light, Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year 2020, pink has been revitalized as a real trendsetter. As the colour de jour, it’s bringing a rosy, warm glow to our homes while re-introducing pink as exciting and on trend. Here’s just a few highlights from Benjamin Moore’s pink palette:

Benjamin Moore pink paint colors on trend with neutrals for 2020 and Color of the Year.

Featured colours(bottom row, left to right):First Light 2101-70, Unspoken Love 1269, and Modern Romance CSP-435

I would even go so far as to call the new pink a neutral. We usually think of neutral shades like white, beige and grey as “nice” colours content to take a backseat while their bolder, splashier counterparts lead the more interesting design conversation. Today’s petal-powered pink is no wallflower! It’s a refreshing alternative to more traditional neutrals, but like them, pink can create a very calming space and works well as a blank canvas that complements and elevates other colours like:


  • Pink + Navy


  • Pink + Black or Charcoal


  • Pink + White


  • Pink + Emerald Green

Playful Accessories


If you want to flirt with pink in your home but are feeling shy about an all-in commitment, start slow by bringing in pink elements one at a time. Adding a few playful accessories will allow you to try out pink in different spots or easily swap pieces in and out of spaces.

Pink Paired with Metallic Finishes


Pink sparkles when paired with the shine of metallic finishes. Try a pop of pink on the wall or choose an accent piece of furniture that has elements of gold or silver.

Artwork


Kick off your pink colour story with artwork. Designers will often use a piece of art as the springboard to developing the palette of an entire room.

Layered & Mixed


By the way, it’s perfectly fine to layer and mix different shades of pink in one shared space. It gives a room depth instead of looking one-dimensional – and there really is no way to do it wrong.

Can you overdo it with pink? Oh sure, but you can say that about any colour. By incorporating this trend in small doses, you’ll avoid a design faux pas while transforming your space into one that is on point and definitely in the pink.

    While you might be hesitant to consider painting your siding, if it’s done right, painting it will give you up to 10 years of stunning results –at a fraction of the price of new siding. Most homeowners are motivated to paint their vinyl siding because the colour has become dated. The washed out yellow or pale blue that looked great twenty years ago – would look outstanding in a more modern taupe, warm gray or tan.
