what colours go with Dulux pretty pink

Thinking of using Dulux Pretty Pink in your home? These complementary colours all bring out the best of this pink shade in your interiors.

Incorporating a pink shade in your interiors is a sure fire way to make a bold statement, whilst adding a fresh, bright aesthetic to a room.

Dulux Pretty Pink is one of my favourite pink shades in their colour charts, let’s take a closer look at what colours go with Dulux Pretty Pink and the best way to utilise it in your interior.

What Colour Is Dulux Pretty Pink?

Dulux Pretty Pink is a beautiful muted shade of pink which can look lilac in some lights, it has undertones of purple, bringing warmth to an interior, whilst making a true statement.

This muted shade can be appreciated in eclectic, maximalist and modern style homes, suitable for any room in the home, working perfectly as a focal feature for a stand out space.

Always grab a tester pot before committing as it can look wildly different online to what it does in your home, this is due to natural light that serves your chosen room, and how it looks under artificial light.

What Colours Go With Dulux Pretty Pink?

Tonal Combinations

Pairing paint with shades that share the same undertones is the best place to start when decorating an interior.

Pretty Pink has beautiful purple undertones so naturally, Dulux suggest pairing with Fuschia Lily and Dusted Fondant.

These differing shades of purple perfectly complement Pretty Pink. You could incorporate them together with wall art, or introduce similar shades of purple with your decor accessories, throws and cushions.

Neutral Combinations

Dulux recommend pairing Pretty Pink with these muted purple shades for a neutral combination. Heather Climb is a great choice to use for a defining shade in the colour scheme. Use this on skirting boards, architraves or doors to add help ground the room.

This isn’t my idea for a neutral combination with Pretty Pink, so keep reading for more complementary colours with this pink shade.

Designer’s Choice Combinations

Whilst it’s best practice to follow the undertones of your main colour paint which in this case is purple, rules were meant to be broken, right? The designer’s choices from Dulux bring a beautiful, highly elegant contrast to the table.

Not brave enough to bring a shade like Golden Cookie into the colour scheme? Think of introducing gold or brass metal finishes through interior hardware details like sockets & switches and cabinet knobs.

Dulux Pretty Pink & Black

Black isn’t a colour that should be shied away from in interiors. Black accents against a stand out colour like Pretty Pink can look phenomenal, and super styled. 

Think about subtle accents such as door handles, styling accessories, side tables and door hooks. These subtle accents tie the room together for a cohesive feel, yet Pretty Pink keeps the room light, and colourful. Black is an absolute essential accent colour if you’re looking to create a modern style interior.

Dulux Pretty Pink & White

If you want to keep things quite low-key and neutral in your interiors, White is one of the best colours to pair with Dulux Pretty Pink. It can be incorporated in a number of ways. Add to ceilings for a crisp contrast and to draw the eye up, giving the illusion of tall ceilings.

Ground the room with bright white skirtings before leading onto the cheekiness of Pretty Pink. Or just bring white in through decor accessories. This type of colour scheme will work in modern, eclectic and even Scandic home decor schemes.

Dulux Pretty Pink & Grey

Pink & grey will always be that millennial colour scheme for me, perfectly pretty and preppy and they go together like a match made in heaven.

Introduce grey curtains against pink walls, a grey carpet or in a more subtle way with throws, cushions and decor accessories. Pair with a third finish such as marble for a beautiful look. Think a marble coffee table, marble decor accessories or a marble fireplace mantel!

Dulux Pretty Pink & Cream

If white seems a little bit too bright and harsh for your interior, cream is a perfect alternative that will tone down Pretty Pink, but it provides a seamless pairing that keeps a space looking neutral and light.

Use cream as a secondary colour on other walls if creating one focal wall with Pretty Pink, or create a half panelled wall with Pretty Pink, and cream on the upper half. This is another way you can draw the eye up as you enter the room, giving the illusion of a larger space. I feel like this colour combination would look beautiful in a baby girls nursery, or even an office space.

Dulux Pretty Pink & Gold

If you want to really nail an elegant, luxury look in your home, pair Pretty Pink with Gold for a stunning uplift.

Be it gold or brass details, you could introduce it in various ways with wallpaper, textiles, sockets & switches or interior hardware details.

Don’t go overboard with gold as it can become tacky in a short period of time, use it sparingly in a few well placed items, or use it as an accent colour on small details to pull the room together.
