the absolute best pink paints
Stumped on what pink paints to purchase? We've asked a few designers for their faves: Sherwin-Williams's Gorgeous White is designer Rachel Cannon's go-to. Designer Barry Goralnick loves Sherwin-Williams's Romance, and Traci Connell opts for Peignoir by Farrow & Ball. But what if you're a fan of the color and don't know where to start?

Kirsten Grove of We Three Design has some tips. Think about what you'll use the space for, she shares. "If it's a gathering space with high traffic, I encourage lighter, fresher colors." Grove's favorite pink, Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball, fits that bill precisely. "I love more of a dusty pink and Setting Plaster is just that!"
And if you intend to use the space as, say, an intimate seating area? "If it's a cozy space with room to lounge and entertain small get-togethers, I suggest going dark and moody," she says. Don't stop at paint—consider deep pink accent walls or statement wallpaper inspired by some of your favorite places.
"I also ask clients if there's a certain vibe or experience that they want to interpret in the space," she says. "I know a lot of clients that have traveled to certain areas of the world and quickly wanted to incorporate those feels in their own home."
