Hey y’all! Today I am excited to be back with my monthly blog series for 2019 – the paint color of the month! Each month I will share a paint color that is currently inspiring me and help you decide how you could use it in your home.
The color of the month this month is Pink Abalone by Behr! M190-3 is the paint code for this project

What I like about Pink Abalone
Living Coral is the official color of 2019, but for many people, it is a bit too bright for much use in your home. That’s why I love Pink Abalone – it is still a bright coral color, but it is much lighter and less bold.
I am a pink person in general, but this shade is particularly good to me. It’s pinker than blush but still not too little-girl-pink.
February has me thinking of Valentines Day and all things feminine, which led me to this perfect shade of pink.
Best Uses for Pink Abalone
Pink Abalone has a lot of potential uses. The light, warm tone means that it could work in a lot of situations. Because it is lighter, it could work in a room with less natural light and not feel too dingy or dark.
Here are my favorite uses for Pink Abalone:
- In any application paired with white + gray marble
- The front door of your home
- For a kitchen island
- For a ceiling or molding
- The exterior or a traditional style house
- A large piece of furniture
- For all of the walls in any room – especially a very large room
- Interior doors
Coordinating Colors for Pink Abalone
Pink Abalone really pops against darker colors. My favorite colors to pair it with would be a chocolate brown, moody navy, or even a lighter peach.
Here are my favorite coordinating colors from Behr:
- Catalina Coast PPU13-03
- Pink Sea Salt M190-1
- Tinsmith BL-W11
- Rio Rust S190-6
I love the look of Pink Abalone and think that it could work in many rooms or pieces in your home. I’d love to see how you would use it in your space!
