The Best Neutral Pink Paint Colors to Try at Home

September 16, 2021

Have you ever considered pink as a neutral paint color? If your answer was no, these neutral pink paint colors will definitely change your mind.

In a few short weeks, I will be getting started on a bedroom makeover for my daughter and, unsurprisingly, she has requested pink walls. I want to find a neutral pink paint color that will still feel modern and fresh in 10 years. I am drawn to so many beautiful blush pinks that it will be hard to make the final decision! Here are the top contenders for her bedroom makeover.


The Best Neutral Pink Paint Colors | Round-up

Farrow and Ball Setting Plaster

I have saved and pinned this image dozens of times and am in love with this beautiful, dusty pink! This bedroom was designed by Heidi Cailler and in my eyes, she can do no wrong. This warm pink is named after homes that have newly plastered walls and it is the perfect fit. This pink paint color gives off major English cottage vibes and I am here for it. The light reflective value for this pink tint is 57, not too light and not too dark.

Farrow and Ball Dead Salmon

Another Farrow and Ball paint color that constantly draws my attention is Dead Salmon. I have a feeling that the color is a bit of a chameleon changing from dusty pink, to beige to purple based on the time of day. This muted pink is a great neutral and looks perfect in this bathroom by Jenny Komenda. With an LRV of 35, this is a darker pink option for your walls.

Benjamin Moore Chippendale Rosetone

Chippendale Rosetone comes is a part of Benjamin Moores Historical Color collection. I was immediately drawn to this sophisticated pink color because it feels timeless. With an LRV of 49.26, it’s not too light, it’s not too dark, it is just right! This color can easily be incorporated into a traditional or contemporary design.

This pale pink is a lighter tint than the previous colors and was chosen ask the 2020 Color of the Year by Benjamin Moore. This rosy hue has an LRV of 77, so the neutral pink paint color feels bright and refreshing!

Sherwin Williams Doeskin

I was really attracted to this color because it feels so cozy! This warm mauve has gray undertones and seems like the perfect color for a bedroom. The LRV is 47, so it is darker than some of the other dusty pinks.

Here is another example from Style Mutt Home that proves pink is the new neutral. This pink is lighter than the muted pink, Dead Salmon, but it hasn’t lost its warmth with an LRV of 49.

Clare Paint Meet Cute

Meet Cute feels warm and welcoming on the walls. It’s not an “in-your-face” pink, which is exactly what I am looking for with my daughter’s bedroom. The pretty pink paint color has depth to it and with an LRV of 50, it feels like a warm earth tone.

Sherwin Williams Romance

Romance is a beautiful, blush pink that feels feminine but not babyish. This popular pink was also chosen as the Color of the Year in 2020 and was one of my personal favs! This is another light tint with an LRV of 66, so it doesn’t feel as dark as some of the other pinks in this roundup that have an LRV below 50.

Farrow and Ball Pink Ground

I don’t think I have seen this color in a room and NOT loving it. Pink Ground is the perfect dusty pink and I am obsessed with how perfect it looks with warm woods in a room. From the pink walls to the scallops on the vintage bed, I want the entire look of this design! The LRV is 72.
