April 2021 Colour of the Month – Pink

Our colour of the month in April is Pink. The soft tones of pink we see in the apple blossoms during Spring evoke feelings of calm and a gentle soothing air. The many tones of this colour including Rose Pink and Blush through to Cerise have a varying affect. This is dependant on the individual’s response and the space that it is used in.

The softer shades of pink can be used in a room to create a harmonious peaceful space, through to the bolder shades adding excitement and a strong statement to your decor.

Pink Paints

If you are looking for a softer pink to bring warmth and intimacy into a room, Little Greene’s Chemise (139) is a subdued and delicate tone. Other paler shades include Pink Slip (220) and Dorchester Pink (213). If you are looking for a period colour, the Regency Light Peachblossom (3) once used in the Royal Pavillion in Brighton is a perfect choice .

The stronger shades include Little Green’s Blush (267), a muted rosy tone and Carmine (189), a 1960’s period colour. Also, the 1970’s period colour, Leather (191), would certainly be a vibrant and exciting choice.
