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(top row, left to right): Rose Lace 1254, Burgundy Rose 1280, Secret Garden 1284, and Pleasant Pink 2094-60

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.

Sudbury, where should I go next? If you have ideas of places I can find interior design inspiration and do some trendspotting, please let me know by leaving comment below.

The old school thinking that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is as silly as believing you can’t drink coffee on days that end in Y. And we simply don’t want to live in a world where either is true.

Now, we don’t like to casually throw around a word like “revolutionary,” but that’s exactly how we’ve come to think of SCUFF-X. Quite simply, it’s a game changer. This single-component paint is an industry first in the way it stands up to wear and tear in hotels and restaurants, schools and universities, offices, retail stores, hospitals and other health care facilities.
