Pink Ground


A dusty blush pink

This dusty pink started out as a delicate wallpaper background which was often requested as a paint colour. Pink Ground, with its large dose of yellow pigment, now creates the softest blush of colour for a warm and soothing finish that doesn’t feel sugary. Rather than contrasting with a bright white, try pairing with the warmer shade of Great White on the woodwork for a unique look in your home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white:  Wimborne White

Pink Ground is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 144.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odor, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They also meet child- and baby-safe requirements in accordance with The Canada Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations, Canada Toy Regulations (SOR/2011-17) – Section 23 and ASTM F963 – 17 - Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety.


Our paint colours are available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft pink We wanted pink, but not too pink. This is a warm, creamy pink that goes well with creams and golds. A bit expensive, but a you get perfect finish and the perfect colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing colour Attractive as it is, we ended up thinking the shade was more bathroom than living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing subtle pink I used with stuff key blue in a bedroom for a dramatic but restful effect highlighted with gold in the panelling. Colours I would never have dreamed of using until this project. So pleased I’m now using pink ground in another stairwell and landing to lighten with colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a lovely pink that my daughter can grow with! My daughter wanted a pink bedroom and I am so happy that she got a pink ground bedroom. It’s a lovely warm pink that she will not grow out of. The eggshell finish was especially easy to work with Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle, elegant and stylish Pink ground is a soft pink with almost a tiny hint of peach. It’s light and fresh and sophisticated. It glides on beautifully and it’s subtlety means it really is suitable for any room. I used modern emulsion and did 2 coats. The modern emulsion leaves a beautiful sheen on the walls so I would really recommend it. I’ve now bought farrow and ball paint for every room in my house as once youve put it in one room, you just can’t stop there as the quality of the paint stands out and puts other brands to shame. It’s exquisite.
