Soft Pink – A Refreshing Alternative to Other Warm Neutrals

First we had the Dulux Colour of the Year for 2020, then the Pantone Colour of the Year. Now, rather late in the day, comes the Benjamin Moore annual winner. First Light, is a cheery shade of soft pink that has been carefully selected by colour experts after months of research and deliberation. This versatile shade was chosen to reflect the air of positivity radiated by consumers upon entering a new decade. A refreshing alternative to other warm neutrals such as cream or beige, this delicate, airy pink is soft enough to flatter a multitude of looks, but bright enough to add a burst of joy into a room. Reminiscent of a decade blooming with potential. Well that was the press release anyway. Recent world events have rather dampened that message, but maybe now more than ever, we need colour in our lives. And we still need inspiration. So on that note, I’ll continue to post on this blog, in the hope that it will provide a little bit of distraction.

Soft Pink - A Refreshing Alternative to Other Warm Neutrals

First Light, Benjamin Moore.

Over the last few seasons, we have gradually seen neutrals with pink and red undertones taking over from our traditionally cooler grey neutrals, so the selection of First Light 2102-70 as our Colour of the Year takes this evolving trend a step further. Its a soft, dusky rose tone that flatters any space and reflects the desire to use blush tones in grown-up spaces as well as a trend towards using more colour overall in our living environments.” says Helen Shaw, Marketing Director at Benjamin Moore UK.
