The meaning of the colour pink is unconditional love and nurturing. A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits. Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy. In colour psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive colour inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay.


Our favourite Pink DULUX range:


Dulux Adobe Pink 3 (90RR39/226), Dulux Blush Rambler 4 (50RR59/101), Dulux Rose Trellis 4 (51RR68/146)


Variations of the colour pink can be used for different purposes. Dulux Blush Rambler 4 or 5 and 6 are very pale pink shades that can be used as wall colours in nurseries. Dulux Rose Trellis 4 could be used on furniture, when used on hard materials such as steel, it creates an interesting contrast and softens up the piece itself. Use salmon pink as an upholstery material for your sofa or your armchair. Orchid pink is an unusual lavender-pink and relates to the unconventional and the individual doing his or her own thing as it is nonconforming. We would recommend using it as a detail of your feature wall but making sure it doesn’t disturb the overall look of the interior itself.
