Sherwin-Williams has unveiled the Color of the Year 2023 – and we want to paint everything in this pretty blush hue. Redend point SW 9081part of Sherwin-Williams’ Color mix forecast for 2023, is a warm, modern mauve that evokes a timeless elegance. “It’s like beige could blush,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “It’s a neutral pink undertone that’s warm and earthy, and it has a certain softness and soothing quality that’s really unique.”
Whether you go for a more glamorous luxury look in the rhythm of Mara Brock Akil .’s beautiful rosé room in Los Angeles, a playful Palm Springs Styleor an earthly one bohemian look, Redend Point suits many design styles that are having their moment right now. Wadden suggests combining this shade with nature-inspired textiles, wood tones, metallic accents or vintage accessories, which really stand out against this muted tone. Complementary green tones go well with this shade. Rich reds, soft greens, muted grays and other earth tones offer eclectic color combinations.
But don’t take our word for it: we’ve taken a few pages from our archives for a really voluptuous pink decor, inspired by the pretty Sherwin-Williams hue. Scroll down for more evidence that Redend Point may just be the calming color hug we need next year.

The story really is as old as time. In this bedroom from Joey Leicht Design, an old-fashioned Ebanista daybed fits seamlessly with David Ryan’s hand-painted mural, all grounded by a slightly lighter Oscar Isberian rug — proof that pink on pink on pink really works, if you know what you’re doing. . Dorya’s gold table and chairs add a touch of gold-plated contrast to the otherwise very soft room. This bedroom would be every young girl’s (and many adults’) pink dream!
Choose colors that are complementary
Pair pink with a complementary navy blue, just like designer Jamie Drake on this historic Long Island estate. Here the walls are skimmed in a plaster that Drake describes as a “warm, embracing, vibrant coral-like salmon”. A robust Vladimir Kagan tête-à-tête sofa centers and anchors the room. Hot tip: Add dimension with a darker or lighter variation of pink, like Blair Thurman’s spiral circular painting, to spark interest.
Go ahead, have your Sistine Chapel moment and paint the ceiling. In this New Jersey horse country home, a pop of pink on the fifth wall is all you need to make a statement. Then don’t be afraid to use something other than a wall to invite more color into a room. Tie in the color with a pink rug, matching velvet ottomans and curtains — and you’ve got a dressing room fit for any self-respecting woman (or man, for that matter).
Take advantage of textures
Go for the modern luxe look by adding different shades and textures, like this travertine cocktail table and Métaphores velvet Vladimir Kagan sofa in Mara Brock Akil’s Los Angeles home. Hot Tip: For added glamour, bring a glass chandelier or glass vase that reflects that warm pink on the walls.
If you don’t know how to incorporate paint color into your space, think of it as a way to bring in other elements. Use it as a bedroom backdrop, as Lisa Corti did with this brighter alternative (Light Pink by RAL) in this vibrant bedroom in Milan.
Pink doesn’t always have to steal the spotlight. In Finnish shoe designer Minna Parikka’s colorful Helsinki home, the serene playful pink background really helps the decor’s bold patterns and colors stand out – keeping it fresh, fun and adventurous.
Bring in earthy textiles
Give your pink walls a relaxed vibe like in this airy home in Bridgehampton, New York, by adding a touch of bohemian warmth with beige furniture and natural textiles. This Sherwin-Williams shade is a brighter, lighter shade, but toned down with Redend Point, you get a more sophisticated, earthy vibe. If you want to use it in a crowded space like a living room, try adding light-colored furniture so the hue doesn’t turn your living room into a dark cave.
Those warmer blush tones add a bit of opulence to this bathroom designed by Courtney Hill Interiors, which creates a serene space around the striking black freestanding tub. Pink is the perfect shade for a bathroom because it gives a pink glow that makes everyone more attractive. Who doesn’t want a little confidence every day?
Use color (more specifically pink) to strike a balance between grandiose and comfortable, as in this London apartment. Here, the interplay of patterns creates an atmosphere, offset by black furniture and black and white artwork.
