What shades of pink are there?

There are countless shades of pink colour, ranging from a soft pinkish white to a rich dark pink. This means that the colours can create a very different effect in the room


From dusky pink to pink: what shades are there?

The palette is huge! Let's start with shades with a hint of pink, such as White with Powder from MissPompadour. This almost white colour shade is minimally tinted with a soft terracotta tone, which creates this subtle rosé colour. This shade is also known as powder pink
Moving on to pastel shades of pink, commonly known as baby pinks. This includes Rose with Warmth from MissPompadour. It has a high white content, but the colour is already clearly perceived as pink.
Dusty pink refers to light shades of pink that have a brown or beige component. The colour shades Rosewood from Painting The Past and Rose with Brown from MissPompadour are great examples. All these colours are perceived as warm pinks. These shades are also called nude in a light version.
Dusky pink goes in a similar direction. However, dusky pink wall paint is usually tinted with grey pigment and is therefore often perceived as a grey pink. Dusky pink and pastel shades of pink can also have elements of violet, the transitions are fluid.
Then, of course, there are the strong shades of pink. These have a high proportion of magenta, which is one of the three basic colours in subtractive colour mixing. In fact, magenta is a really strong pink colour. Depending on which pigments are added to it, different shades are created. Pink with Grey by MissPompadour already has its orientation in its name. Hippy from Painting the Past is a rather reddish pink, while Pink with Peony from MissPompadour is a strong, warm pink with bluish pigments. An accent wall in pink wall paint is certainly an eye-catcher!

What is the difference between pink and rose?

Pink refers to very strongly pigmented colour shades. Pink, on the other hand, is always more or less tinted with white. The best known of these is the delicate pastel pink. Pink and rose can both be mixed with grey, brown, orange or umber pigments. A warm pink colour can be achieved by adding a little blue pigment.

Pink wall paint and its effect

Pink is generally known as a feminine colour. However, pink is not only suitable for girls, as the colour has become a trend colour and is in vogue. In a room painted pink, you feel balanced and calm. It looks fresh and light, reduces aggression and can even lift your mood. You can also paint large walls in pink with a clear conscience and enjoy the effect of pink wall paint.

Which rooms is pink suitable for?

As pink has a very broad colour scheme, this versatile wall paint is suitable for almost all living areas. Simply give free rein to your ideas.
Its sleep-inducing properties and the calming effect of pink make it an ideal interior colour for your bedroom.
Pink is also a good choice for children's rooms thanks to its calming effect. Apart from the fact that it is probably the most common colour of choice for little girls, your child will find it easy to calm down in a room painted pink.
In the kitchen and living room, pink walls can create a cosy atmosphere. Combine pink walls with grey-grey or black tones to create a sophisticated and mature character.



Tips for the trend colour pink

Such a versatile colour can be used anywhere. Whether living room, bedroom, bathroom or kitchen - pink is an enrichment in any room.


Living styles and trends in shades of pink

Due to its versatility, pink can be integrated into various living styles, which is why we think it should be used more often.
Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is a romantic living style, also known as cottage style. Here, pink finds a perfect setting with other pastel colours and lace fabrics, as well as playful accessories. Use additional elements in gold or silver to create elegance. Although this style is reminiscent of Rosamunde Pilcher stories, you can avoid a kitschy look with the right decorations. After all, pastel colours are known for their relaxing and gentle effect
If shabby chic has already found its way into your home, use a soft pink to set colourful accents between white and grey.
A pink accent wall also skilfully sets off the industrial elements in a completely opposite industrial chic style. Ifyou paint a small area with pink wall paint, it will certainly attract attention as an accent.
The glamour style combines pink with golden and velvety elements for a sublime and eye-catching effect.
If you prefer a modern style, pink is the right colour for you. The trend colour pink can also be used to create perfect accents in this straightforward style. This style also works well with a neon pink wall paint.
Light, brownish shades of pink go perfectly with the natural elements of the boho style.

Which colour shades go well with rose, pink & co

Combine grey and beige tones with pink if you want to achieve a harmonious and calm effect. Dark anthracite and black emphasise the soft effect of pink. If you like it pastel, you can choose from the entire colour scheme of pastel shades.
In general, both strong and weaker colours go well with pink. If you want to emphasise pink, it is best to combine strong colours such as a bright blue. If you want to go for depth of colour, paint an accent wall in a strong, dark blue such as Blue with Ink and place a piece of furniture in front of it that you have painted pink with varnish. Choose a pastel pink colour to achieve the ideal composition.
The complementary colour green also supports the luminosity of this expressive colour. But also combine olive green with pink to achieve an extraordinary look. Matt wood varnish in pink is particularly suitable if you want to create a restrained impression.
Pastel shades such as a soft yellow or green also soften pink. Avoid too many bright colour shades in a small space, otherwise you can quickly create a garish effect.

What can I combine the pink wall paint with?

Depending on your style of living, you can combine pink wall paint in a variety of ways. If you like it playful and romantic, lace fabrics and floral prints are the right choice. Natural elements such as wood, linen or grasses are ideal if you have a boho style interior. If you prefer straight lines, combine pink with Grey and black or silver metal elements. Copper, gold and rose gold - used sparingly - look elegant with pink
If you want to go in an intensely kitsch direction, apply wall paint in pink with glitter. To do this, apply the first coat with the pure wall paint and mix the rest with special glitter. With decoration in pastel colours, a wall can become the ideal eye-catcher in the children's room - and not just there.
