Fresh, cheerful, and easy to decorate with, we rounded up the best pink paint colors to consider if you're embarking on a redecorating project (or just looking for some desk-side inspiration). After all, it is the best color in the rainbow—we know, we know, it technically isn't in the traditional rainbow, but once you see these pink paint colors in all their versatile, uplifting glory, it'll be your favorite color, too. So without further ado, read on for twelve interior designer examples, decorating ideas, and shopping suggestions for pink paint below.
Interior designer Janie Molster says there's no such thing as too much pink, and we happen to agree—especially when it's emboldened by red and white striped furniture. But if you just want to dabble in the bright color, start by painting a smaller area in your home, like in pretty window nook. It gives a bit of a romantic glow without feeling like you painted the walls with bubblegum.

Designed by Kate Reid, this little nook packs a lot of punch. She chose this surprising shade of pink paint, Benjamin Moore's Lazy Afternoon, to make the beautiful doors stand out even more. Unique and bold, the rich shade of mauve-meets-orchid-meets-magenta enhances the color palette of the nearby wallpaper. "My accountant said, "Kate, you shouldn't be buying an apartment because of the doors," she laughs, "but these were sort of a selling point."

If you're worried about pink paint becoming too stereotypically girly, opt for a paler shade with more peachy tones. Then decorate with moodier materials and contemporary furniture. This way, it'll blend in more than it stands out. In this living room designed by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design, the splashes of navy blue marry that carefree vibe of peach with the more sophisticated energy of black marble.
