I promised to share my favorite corals, blushes, and pink paint colors with you this week. While I picked these colors with my office in mind, these pink paint colors would also look great in nurseries, playrooms, and guest bedrooms.
One of my main goals is to avoid pepto-bismol pink (am I allowed to say that?) I'm looking for a grown-up, soft, modern pink that will go well with our new greige carpet. The pink paint colors I selected range from blushes to corals. While this is by no means a conclusive list (would love to hear your favorites!), these 5 are definitely my favorites for now!
#1: Sherwin-Williams Intimate White
I picked this light shade of blush because it is falls in the neutral "white&pastel" category of Sherwin-Williams colors. If you are nervous about painting with color, I think Intimate White would be the perfect color to ease into. image source: Country Living
#2: Sherwin-Williams Angelic
Angelic is not technically a current color but they will still mix it for you on request. I picked it because I've seen quite a few room on Pinterest with this color, so it feels tried-and-true. Its RGB value is pretty close to Intimate White. image source: House of Jade
#3: Sherwin-Williams Faint Coral
Faint Color is a pleasant light, soft pink-coral (depending on lighting). It belongs in the "white and pastel" family of Sherwin-Williams colors. image source: Inspired by This
#4: Sherwin-Williams Blushing
Blushing is a bit more bold in color than the above 3 neutral-pinks, and is a nice blush pink option. Blushing is in the "red&orange" category of Sherwin-Williams paints. image source: Phoenix Restoration
#5: Sherwin-Williams Mellow Coral
And last but not least: Mellow Coral! This coral-toned pink is the boldest of the 5 I selected. I'd recommend this for a room that has good amount of natural light or light-toned furniture to break up the color. It belongs in the "red&orange family of Sherwin-Williams colors. image source: Probably This
I ended up selecting a shade lighter than #5's Mellow Coral and painted my office Sherwin Williams Romance. I love how it turned out! The the full office reveal here.
