Color Crush: Blush Pink

Versatile Color Combinations for Blush Pink

Spring is here and it's the perfect time to celebrate the many ways to incorporate blush pink into your home décor. Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, named Rose Quartz, a blush pink, one of the colors of the year. While blush pink has been identified as trending, I think it's a very classic and versatile hue. Using Benjamin Moore paint colors, I've created five color palettes centered on blush pink to get you started.
