Pale pink walls

Posted on Tue, 19 Jan 2016 by KiM

I have been wondering for months what to do with my dining room. Dark? Bright? Wallpaper? I don’t have very good recent photos because I hate the room – this one is the most recent that shows a decent amount of the space. (The floors are now stained grey!)  Nothing has really stood out until I suddenly started thinking about pale pink. Then I started thinking about pale pink with dark grey trim. Then I started getting very excited. I am pretty sure pale pink is the route I want to take with the walls (trim will probably just be the same colour or a shade darker so it’s not too choppy, and the doors maybe the black blue of the foyer…and not sure about the ceiling). I have been eyeballing Farrow & Ball‘s Pink Ground, Setting Plaster and Calamine. I think Pink Ground on walls and Setting Plaster on trim could be really gorgeous. I have sent a request for samples so those are on the way. In the meantime, I went looking for inspiration and found all kinds of pretty pinks. And based on the first 2 photos, I think I need heavy velvet burgundy drapes.

Yvonne Koné’s shop (Farrow & Ball’s Pink Ground) LOOOVE THIS!!! So pretty with grey floors – mine are a couple of shades darker than this.

Flack Studio – a little bright but Jo pointed it out to me and it is so gorg I had to include it

That's the cool (and sometimes vaguely frustrating) thing about F&B: the color changes depending on everything. I've seen Setting Plaster look like warm pale pink but I could well believe peach in a different space. I once painted a study Borrowed Light – the perfect Gustavian blue. Then tried it in another room, hoping for the same look. Nope. Baby boy blue. It all depends. I can't wait to see what you pick!!!

Calamine seems the more cool, sophisticated colour. You absolutely need to go with what looks best in your space, but based on the online photos I've seen I vote Calamine too 🙂
