It’s okay if you hate pink. Just wait until you see this old-world shade of peachy pink paint colors that we’re obsessed with lately.
I’ve always had a hard time with the color pink. It reminded me of princess-themed rooms, you know the extreme versions? where everything is bubble gum pink, including the carpet, curtains, and even the pink princess posters on the wall.
But at the same time, I always pictured designing a whimsical room for our daughter.
So when we were designing Penelope’s bedroom, I made it my mission to find the perfect peachy pink paint.
How to Find the Perfect Peachy Pink Paint
I planned on avoiding the bubble gum pink because we’ve seen it used a lot over the years and reminded me of the girl’s rooms from the ’90s. But I still wanted a pink color that would fit our cottage-style home. So I looked at deeper tones, desert pinks, and dusty rose colors.
I pulled a few that I thought would work, tested them out and these were the 2 paint colors I choose:
Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball
Farrow and Ball make some of my favorite paints and I’m often referring to design clients. I found this old-world pink color that was warm, inviting, and still very cottage-eque. It’s called Setting Plaster and I’ve been seeing it a lot lately. Instead of using it for kid’s spaces, it’s being used in living rooms and bathrooms. It’s a beautiful color and it’s sure to win you over (even if you hate the color pink).
I often think of Setting Plaster paired with antique furniture or giving an older home a facelift. It’s honest so versatile and I’m scheming of places I can incorporate it more in our home.
Sedona Pink by Behr
We used Sedona Pink by Behr in Penelope’s Bedroom. I wouldn’t call it dusty pink, but more of a warmer peachy tone that changes depending on the lighting.
It’s the reason I’ve been converted into someone who actually wants to use pink paint in their home.
I mean how could you not love the way it looks in our inspiration room above? Personally, I think it has a lot of potential for more than just a bedroom. I would love to use this color on our front door, a future bathroom, or even a fireplace mantel!
