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: Tallow

Pink Ground is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 139.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft pink I loved the look of this colour on the F&B website and, having now tried a sample, I know it is the right choice for our bedroom. It is a gentle, soft pink with a slight peach tinge, so you have a gorgeous colour without it being bright and gaudy. Can’t wait to decorate now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Statistical "proof" that pink ground is the best I put no less than a dozen swatches of various pink blush paint colors on all four walls of my living room. They were all very similar, including BM's Coastal Cottage, which is supposed to be a dupe. Then I brought my husband and son in (separately) and asked them to pick their favorite. They both picked Pink Ground, even though neither of them could have cared less about interior color. I think the reason is the multi-dimensionality of the paint, which really makes it glow. It's the perfect midpoint between pink, orange, cream, and gray. By comparison, the dupes were all very flat.
