Fresh Pale and Pastel Paint Colours


Fresh Pale and Pastel Paint Colours

Whisper-soft pale pinks. Hushed pastel blues. Calming, muted yellows. Pastel and pale paint colours cast a flattering light on people and places alike.

Clean, simple, and surprisingly nuanced, pale and pastel paint colours harmonize effortlessly with a range of colours. Delightfully sophisticated, especially when paired with neutral tones, the soft hints of colour offered by these hues enliven any room.

Pale and Pastel Orange Paint Colours

Pale and pastel oranges are light-hearted and playful. Here, summery Peach Parfait 2175-70 delivers warmth, vibrancy and an element of surprise. Consider pale, flattering hues like Sunlit Coral 2170-60, August Morning 2156-40, and Crestwood Tan 116 for a more mellow approach.

The direct opposite of orange—or its complementary colour on the colour wheel—is blue. Navy paint colours like Downpour Blue 2063-20, Evening Dove 2128-30 and Mysterious AF-565 pair beautifully with pastel and pale orange paint colours. On this door, Flint AF-560, a dramatic slate gray, adds rich contrast.

Pale and Pastel Blue Paint Colours

Light blue paint colours evoke a calming, rejuvenating air. Check out Yarmouth Blue HC-150, seen in this relaxing bedroom. Pair soft blues with whites and neutrals to create a refreshing coastal bedroom. And use bold pops of colour for a focal point and a touch of energy.

Pale, gray-blue paint colours hold appeal as a slightly more subtle choice for homeowners looking for light blue colours. We love Ocean Air 2123-50, Mt. Rainier Gray 2129-60 and Tranquility AF-490.
