“Pink” Chip Stock

Even experts at the Color Marketing Group agree that when the Dow Jones takes a dip, people embrace big, bold color. That is exactly what I did in this apartment I designed for a friend in Manhattan working with the tightest budget. Benjamin Moore’s Pink Corsage gave this room the most dramatic impact for the dollar—the best investment yet in my design portfolio.



The moment this paint went on the wall I knew it was perfect and even when the light changes during the day, this shade of pink stays true and never becomes harsh or jarring to the senses. And maybe, more importantly, it casts a flattering hue on everyone’s complexion.

Here’s a tip: buy the Pink Corsage in the Aura blend, which is one of Benjamin Moore’s richest, premium performance formulas of paint. You’ll get an intensity of color in one or two coats.

I like thinking of this shade of pink as a neutral because so many colors look fabulous with it: brown, gray, yellow, green, blue, red, purple, silver. Think pink!
