Pale, Pale Pink

Back here I painted our smallest bedroom Benjamin Moore Head Over Heels pink.

I had about a third of a can remaining and decided to use it on the master bedroom ceiling. The ceiling was part dirty and part raw drywall mud from repairs after removing the closets.

The master bedroom has not been painted for over 15 years.

I bought a gallon of  flat Clark and Kensington White Mosaic and mixed it with the leftover pink paint. (We’re using White Mosaic in semi-gloss as our interior trim color.)

The palest pink you can imagine is on the master bedroom ceiling.

The ceiling is just the palest whisper of pink.

I’m still planning to use a light but intense periwinkle on the walls. But plans are known to change.

Are you painting something that really needs a lift? How many years (decades) do you wait between paint jobs?

  1. That is a great idea. I love the way that pink makes people look, but I am always afraid that Douglas will rebel against me painting something pink in the house.

    • The only reason pink is even in our palette is due to our pink tile (but thankfully white fixtures) bathroom. I agree that it creates a lovely softness. Jo
