Pink Paint Colours

It’s time to rethink pink as a colour for the home. The history of pink has seen the colour transform from its traditional association with gender into a popular and stylish choice for anyone. Pink paint is not just for girls bedrooms anymore: it has taken its place at the forefront of stylish interior design making it a popular choice for decorating. With the right shade, pink can let any room blossom into a stylish and attractive space for grown-ups. 


The versatility of pink gives you a variety of moods and styles to go for, whether you fancy rich berry pinks, sophisticated blush pink paint, or soft pale pastels. The colour immediately presents youthful and fun vibes while still keeping your home looking chic. Check out our guide to pink paint and live life through rose-coloured glasses.

Pink Colours and Shades

How to pick the right pink for your home

Decorating with pink can feel risky if you've never done it before, however many different modern, minimalist, traditional, edgy, and contemporary styles can be conjured up using the different shades. 

The warmth and undertones in each pink shade are what makes the different options vary so much and give the room a different impact or atmosphere. From bright hot pink to coral, rose or soft pastel pink, we have the perfect pink shade to help you turn any room into a cosy and comforting place to enjoy.





Light pink shades

Soothing pale pinks can lift the room, making them feel light and bright while bringing a delicate softness to create a relaxing space. With barely-there pastel pinks to baby pink and powder pink tones as options, pink paint is a wonderful playful substitute if you prefer a more neutral colour palette while still keeping a hint of colour. Softer shades of pink can summon joy, creativity and relaxation. Try Marshmallow F336 for a light-hearted room with a grown-up impact. 



Dusky pink shades

Pinks with grey or beige undertones create a dusky pink in muted shades that offer up contemporary yet cosy vibes. Elegant and sophisticated, these rose pink shades couldn’t be further away from the notion that pink is just for girls. If you’re looking for a pink that feels elegant, chic, and provides an alluring depth, opt for Mezeron H417. Try combining TVT G417 with earthy rich colours like chocolate brown to immediately transform any space into an oh-so-chic retreat. 

Blush pink shades

Pink with yellow pigments creates warm soft blush pink tones, ideal for creating a cosy and soothing mood. Using a soft, subtle tone like TVT Y329 will evoke a sense of calm, and bring a stillness to the room. Flattering for almost any space, these romantic tones add warmth to a north-facing room, but are still soft enough for the warmer light of a south-facing room.

Coral pink shades

On the other side of the spectrum of warm pink shades, you have coral shades with undertones of orange and red which add comfort and warmth to any room, traditional or contemporary. Whether you opt for a saturated or soft hue, coral pinks such as Flamingo K319 will make a home feel bright and happy, no matter the season. Pair the coral with gold for an extremely luxurious impact. Or contrast it with turquoise for a home that looks destined to be on a sunshine drenched coast. 

Bright pink shades

Bright pink shades create vibrant and uplifting rooms with an impact. These dynamic and energising shades are ideal to create an eye-catching feature wall with a splash of hot pink and are perfect to give smaller or north-facing rooms a heightened sense of purpose, stopping them from becoming too grey and faded. Pigmented shades such as Freesia S329 will transform any room with a burst of colour ready to invigorate you.

Chic pink bathrooms have been popping up in homes all over, and they make an instant statement look. There are many ways to incorporate pink into the bathroom from painting the walls, or simply refreshing your original tiles with our tile paint. If you want to cover a large area without overpowering the room, opt for a blush Milkshake Y411 pink or a similarly muted shade. But you don’t have to cover every surface in pink to make an impression. Pink bathroom tiles are an easy way to make an impact especially when set against a contrasting colour, such as Nectar L418 with charcoal, black or grey shade, making the space appear immediately on-trend.

For a warm and inviting sanctuary, opt for a dusky Mezeron H417 shade combined with gold or copper accents such as the taps and towel holders for an image of sheer retro decadence.

Pink and green sound like they shouldn't work, however, the combination is immediately uplifting when paired together, and creates a relaxing environment with a hint of nature. Go for a pastel or mint green with Magnolia H320 and add an abundance of houseplants. If you want a bathroom to walk in and feel energised no matter the time of day, give the bathroom a dynamic splash of colour with a hot pink Freesia S329. Wood tone works in harmony with almost any pink shade and brings a hint of warmth.

If you fancy a kitchen that stands out, think pink for the job. Whether you prefer a bright pink, pastel pink or a more muted rose pink, pink will inject positivity and personality into any kitchen. It may feel bold to turn your kitchen pink, but the shade is so versatile, you’re sure to find a style for you. Tone it down with wooden accents, pair with black or grey for an industrial feel, or even contrast with different colours for an energetic and dynamic design. 

Create a contemporary look with light pinks such as Marshmallow F336 and Empress X477, combined with black for an eye-catching contrast. Or accompany your chosen shade with a white shade and add in copper or gold accessories. 

Using a warm pink Magnolia H320 turns the kitchen into a cosy and youthful space. Why not try a coral Flamingo K319 and sage green for a cosy, grown-up space with extra tropical vibes. Adding different tones of pink with lighting behind the cabinets will create depth and extra warmth. 

If you still feel slightly apprehensive about picking pink, opt for a pale pink that’s present but not too visible. Our Maiden X420 has just a hint of pink with beige undertones creating a sophisticated, neutral space with a rosy tint.

The living room is all about enjoying a calm, cosy environment to relax in, and so it’s essential that the style reflects that. Although it may seem unconventional at first, pink is an ideal paint choice with its soothing and cosy properties. Mezeron H417 can bring a warm quality to a room just by adding a rosy tint that fits together flawlessly with gold metallics, and light wood finishes. 

For a chic ambience with a romantic style, a soft blush goes perfectly with other neutrals such as a grey sofa, making the perfect inviting space to relax in. Or go monochromatic and style Vesuvio Fresco With black and white. 

Pink is a fun, playful colour, so treat your living room as such. Show your personality through your style and create a joyful space with different textures and cheerful artwork and pair it with Illuminated Pink on the walls. Using different shades will add depth and texture, as well as a sense of luxury to the space. 

A bright pink like TVT J339 is a great option if you fancy a vibrant pop of colour. Keep the furniture and accessories minimalist to let your walls do the talking.

When it comes to bedrooms, pink paint should not be confined to girls’ rooms. A soft and soothing space is exactly what the bedroom should be, and pink shades create just that for both children and adult bedrooms alike. If you think pink walls will look too feminine, add warm neutrals or darker shades to give it a wider appeal. Dusky or blush shades are great because the undertones drive them away from the sugary sweet end of pink and into more sophisticated territory. Try layering Pavillion X417 with cream tones and wooden furniture. 

If bold is more your thing, have fun with a bright or hot pink such as Freesia S329 for a vibrant bedroom that will have you bouncing with energy each morning. 

For the sun lovers out there, bring in the earthy warmth of the Mediterranean with coral Flamingo K319 and create a cocoon with different textured soft furnishings.
