When you think of a “neutral” wall color, shades like beige, taupe, or gray may come to mind. But pale pink is a surprisingly versatile, livable “new neutral.” On the walls of this living space that the stylists at Nathan + Jac say was inspired by an “unconventional, carefree approach” to design, blush pink is the perfect foundation shade to layer with white, cream, and dove gray. Tip: To get that chalky Scandinavian look on your walls, pick a flat paint formulation.
Soft as the dawn, Millennial Pink is a soothing (and skin-flattering) choice for bedroom walls and linens. To keep the look from getting too sweet, be sure to add hints of natural texture and contrasting neutrals as the team at Nathan + Jack did in this contemporary bedroom.
