Are you thinking about painting your interior pink? There are hundreds of quality pink paints on the market offering a wide range of pink shades we’ll going to explore in this article.
As you’ll see there are many bold and even showy pinks originally meant more as an accent than the full cover of the wall and there are also numerous calmer ones, sometimes only with a hint of pink paint colors among which you can find just perfect one for your room, no matter if it’s a living room or a study, for boys or girls, with full coverage or just for one of the walls in the room.
20 popular shades of pink paint with examples
Here are 80 different shades of pink paint produced by dozens of paint makers, all the major paint brands included. They are presented with HEX (HTML) and RGB codes, so you can imitate the desired effects on your computer or mobile screens before ending up with several gallons of paints of the wrong color.
Enjoy the voyage and think pink!
Blush Pink Paint
This is the stronger pink hue with a lot of red but also a significant percentage of green and blue (if we think of RGB standards), which leads to more orange or violet tones.

#C56E76 (197, 110, 118) Valspar Paint Brazilian Blush
Blush pink paints can still stay true to the blush in their names if the end effect is less showy. Here are lighter tones of blush pinks which is obvious from their values of G and B). As you see, Valspar is a leading manufacturer in both ‘families’ of blush pinks.

Hot Pink Paint
If you like bright, energetic colors, hot pink paint might be the right choice for you. Again, it might be too strong for the painting of the whole room but you have countless options to combine it with a white ceiling (all strong and medium pinks pair perfectly with white) or use it just for a few stripes in the area of your choice.
#D5276A (213, 39, 106) ProMarker Hot Pink

We are not done yet. More bright pink paints can be explored below. As you see, the perception of hot or bright by manufacturers varies from classic magenta to brown on one and baby pink on the other side.

EEBFCE (238, 191, 206) Devoe Paint Hot Pink
Please note that bright and hot are perceived as petty much the same in the industry.
Candy Pink Paint
We still have a plethora of lively and energetic pinks to check, yet not necessarily so intensive colors as above. Candy pink paints took their names from pinkish-colored candies which immediately bring memories of amusement parks, garden parties, and other carefree moments of pure happiness.
#9B4469 (155, 68, 105) Bentley Candy Pink
#EA848F (234, 132, 143) Taubmans Candy Pink / Bristol Candy Pink
#F5919D (245, 145, 157) Apple Barrel Candy Pink
#D69495 (246, 148, 149) Asian Paints Pink Candy
#D8BAC5 (216, 186, 197) Valspar Paint Candy
While pink color doesn’t necessarily suit everybody we can’t deny such lively shades are a guarantee against boredom. So let’s compare another set of candy pink paints.
#F7BEBD (247, 190, 189) Devoe Paint Cotton Candy Pink
#F3BEC3 (243, 190, 195) CIL Cotton Candy Pink
#F8DCC6 (248, 220, 190) Albany Paint Candy
#F1E7E6 (241, 231, 230) New Look Pink Candy
#FFCDC7 (255, 205, 199) Valspar Paint Candy Hearts
Metallic / Neon Pink Paint
Metallic paints are so aggressive they are in most cases used only as an addition to other paints to achieve some specific effect. They are also a valuable addition to areas in theme parks and similar entertainment venues. Metallic pink and neon pink belong to the same family with very intensive red with a flashy look which, as already said is not always used as it is, but added to other paints to create custom colors.
Or, if you want, you can make only a vertical strike with one of the presented neon pink paints somewhere close to the top of the otherwise pale-colored wall.
Pink Flamingo Paint
Flamingoes symbolize beauty, grace, and romance. The birds got their characteristic color of feathers from carotenoids produced by algae, the main staple of brine shrimps which are the main source of food for flamingoes.
#F87F92 (248, 127, 146) Duron Pink Flamingo
#D67C99 (214, 124, 153) CIL Flamingo Pink
#CD717B (205, 113, 123) Sherwin-Williams Pink Flamingo
#D97C94 (217, 124, 148) Devoe Paint Flamingo Pink
#C77D7E (199, 125, 126) Behr Pink Flamingo
Depending on the percentage of carotenoids, the balance of diet of specific flamingos, and of course other factors, the color may vary from intensive orange or red to relatively pale pink.
Pink flamingoes are another story. A decorative idea of a plastic pink flamingo as a lawn ornament is today closely associated with Florida yet it comes from Leominster, Massachusetts, the self-proclaimed plastic capital of the world. Some love it, some hate it, just like the color pink. But like it or not, it’s iconic and part of our cultural history.
Light Pink Paint
Lighter shades of pink paint are way more popular for painting walls than stronger hues. So we should not be surprised to find even more options of interior paints in light pink to choose from.
#F2DBDE (242, 219, 222) Valspar Paint Light Pink
#FAB4D8 (250, 180, 216) Apple Barrel Light Pink / 20535
#FABFBF (250, 191, 191) Apple Barrel Light Pink / 44844E

#FFE1E2 (255, 225, 226) California Paints Pristine Pink
As you can see above, Apple Barrel offers two paints with the same name differing by the numbers at the end of the name.
Lighter shades of pink are easily accentuated with subtones of yellow to enliven the space or greyish additions which make the areas calmer. Alone or in a variety of combinations these paints can be used for interiors and exteriors, virtually for every place you might want to paint.
And often they don’t even look pink!

Pale Pink Paint
As the name suggests, we are dealing with calm colors, suitable for living places, where you can hang out with friends, eat meals, study, exercise, or rest, just about everything you might imagine.

Pale pinks are another popular choice for a variety of interiors and there are many great options on the market.
Dusty Pink Paint
We are still not over with lighter shades of pink paint. The industry interchangeably uses names dusty and dusky pinks which means we have a whole family of lighter pinkish paints with greyish addition which makes the end result on the wall very peaceful with a typical matte finish.

Greyish Pink Paints
The family of greyish pinks is always in demand yet there is currently no paint on the market bearing such a name. So we choose from the numerous options and create a group of five typical greyish-pink paints where you can start from.

#EFE7EA (239, 231, 234) Sico Soft Pink Blush
Coral Pink Paint
Coral is another iffy color. Should we treat it as orange or pink? Maybe even a subfamily of red? Anyways, the paint manufacturers offer several paints with the color pink in their names, and here is an example for you.
#EBCCCF (235, 204, 207) Colortrend / Diamond Vogel Pink Coral / ECOS Paints Pink Coral
