A splash of colour to put you in the pink

Cupboard upcycled by Little Gems Interiors in shades of deep pink

Whether you are looking for a bright, bold flash of colour, or a subtler shade, there is most certainly a pink to suit your style. 


Bringing colour into your home is a fantastic way to lift the mood - something so many of us could do with at the moment. And with pink’s association with feelings of tenderness and affection what better colour to choose when adding heart to your home? 


A splash of pink can easily be added to a room with a feature wall or soft furnishings. Upcycling is a great option too, allowing you to breathe new life into an old piece of furniture with a little inspiration and a lick of paint. 


Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Colour Chart


“Pink sits between red and blue on the colour wheel and opposite green. As a rule, colours which are opposite each other work really well together. In this case the pairing makes sense when you think how often pink and green can be seen together in nature. 


“Combining hot pinks with neutral tones such as whites and creams can work well too, while paler pinks look spectacular when teamed with blues and greys.” 


As a proud stockist of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ we love the selection of pinks that are on offer in the range from soft, pale tones all the way through to the new Capri hot pink. 


Perfect for upcycling projects, Chalk Paint™ offers a velvety matt finish and can be mixed and blended to create the precise shade you need. This is great news if you are aiming for an ombre effect, or when adding depth and interest to your project. 


Although it’s hard to choose, here are a few of our favourite pinks in the Annie Sloan range: 


Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Antoinette

This soft sophisticated shade has a richness and depth which goes way beyond a traditional pastel pink.

It combines beautifully with neutrals such as Old White or French Linen but can equally have impact when used on its own.  






Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Capri Pink

Although only recently added to the range this daring hot pink is already becoming a firm favourite for many. Vibrant, fun and classy it really adds a pop of colour and looks great coupled with neutral tones such as Old White.

This dusky shade looks brilliant when teamed with neutrals such as Old Ochre or Old White. Or why not try using it alongside Aubussan or Chicago Grey, the key colours for the recent Annie Sloan Big Paint event.
