Pale Dogwood – Pantone: 13-1404

Subtle yet sophisticated ‘Pale Dogwood’ is the toned down ‘Rose Quartz’ of 2016

 Could this be the ‘Millennial Pink’ that designers from both the interior and the fashion industries are throwing about and referencing this year? Possibly, but it’s difficult to say exactly as the industries themselves are seemingly having trouble pinning down ‘exactly’ what shade or tone ‘Millennial Pink’ is.

Pale Dogwood is best described tonally as a very pale salmon. The best adjectives I can think of are; delicate, romantic, subtle, sophisticated and calming.

With an appeal to both genders, it’s a calm pink with ‘depth’. Best used in moderation as an accent, but in the ‘right’ room when cleverly paired with the right ‘tone’ of grey or a contrasting colour, it can make for a stunning wall or feature colour. Another contrast idea is mixing it with natural ashen toned timber, or a dominating grey or ash brown stone/marble for impact. It works well with the metals bronze and gold.

  2. Yes, I too, want to congratulate you on your choice of words and your knowledge of successfully ‘selling’ a colour. I detect a huge feeling of balance of colours. I admire you! I hope you get a reply from Nina’s connections!
