Pastel pink has been around for some time and we are seeing this colour moving on to a more powdery blush-like hue. It was one of the colours spotted at Milan this year in furniture and lighting design. Signs is a graphic collection of mirrors made from a sheet of copper with a finish on it to create a graphic game of perception, perspective and reflects.

What rooms does powder pink suit?

Powder pink is not just for babies’ nurseries and little girls’ rooms. This new neutral pink also works beautifully in adult bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, studies and entrances. It gives a lovely glow to the skin, so it is also a good colour for a bathroom. It creates a contemporary, sophisticated and calm statement.

Colours that go well with Powder Pink

Powder Pink is soft, cozy and romantic; a delicate hue that can be used on its own, but it works well with other colours to create new trendy combinations and moods. Pink becomes more sophisticated when combined with grey or black. Medium-to-dark blues and greens also make a good combination.

Malala Yousafzai wore the perfect colour – pink – when she addressed the UN General Assembly on July 12, a day which also marked her 16th birthday. Pink is a good colour to wear when you feel compassionate and loving; it also encourages you to be kind to yourself – it is comforting and soothing.

If your favourite colour is soft pink

Soft pink personalities are charming and friendly, gentle and peace loving. They are tender and warm, cautious and contemplative.

    What is nice light grey to go with powder pink for the walls. It’s a east facing room

      Hi Charmaine,

      After consultation with our colour experts at the Plascon Spaces Showroom, the Showroom Manager has responded as follows:

      Light has the biggest effect on how a paint colour will appear on a wall, and especially in an east facing room where the colour will change throughout the day. In your case it is especially important to test the colours on the wall before you paint, as you will want to see how the colour changes from morning to evening (the artificial light at night will also change the colour). A colour that you love in the afternoon might be dull and a little flat in the morning (you can purchase a 250ml tester pot from the Plascon Spaces Showroom or your nearest hardware store). Test the colours on a white background, and live with it for 24 to 48 hours before you decide on the colour.

      Greys that you can consider (depending on the purpose of the room) would be:

      Serious (Essential Collection 37)
      Sterling (Essential Collection 39)
      Off Shore (Essential Collection 50)

      If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact us at the email below.

      Kind regards,
