A Gentle Pink
Raspberry Blush may be Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2023, but personally, I’m drawn to another colour in this year’s palette, Tofino Sunset (or Conch Shell if you’re looking at their U.S. site).
“A gentle pink reminiscent of sepia tone, this dusty hue brings to mind thoughts of dusk captured by a vintage film camera. Tofino Sunset may bring a blush to your space, but this hue is not shy. This comforting colour balances out the bold vibes of this palette, appearing almost neutral alongside such striking shades.”
From tiles to nail polish, to wallpaper and beyond, this subtler version of pink lends itself well to surfaces like lighter-toned woods and pale walls, creating a more casual, laid back vibe. I’ve collected a few images with that palette and complimentary colours in mind. Let’s take a look!
