“Can I paint this pink”

It’s been a while since I’ve had a focus on a product other than sneakers. I’ve finally settled in our new apartment and damn, how happy am I? Decorating the place is still happening in full effect but we are getting there!

This time my boyfriend had a lot more to say about the interior. I listened to him and yes, I was definitely not allowed to get a pink wall. I tried to convince him with my can of paint from Farrow & Ball but still in his eyes it was way too pink. I must say when you open it, it does look really pink so I understood at first and thought again: I do like to keep walls simple and fill up the space with colourful decorations. So that’s what I decided to do with the bucket of Farrow & Ball.

The colour I have of F&B is Sulking Room Pink. And that word “pink” is what scared my boyfriend. “I’m not a girl, I don’t want a pink wall” – Okay cool so what was I going to splatter then? A canvas in that colour and just draw something random? Nahhh. I wanted something dope.

My boyfriend still had a vinyl stormtrooper head. He painted on it, changed his mind, sprayed it orange, changed his mind again and left it for what it was. “Can I paint this pink”. He was hesitant but eventually agreed and sprayed the head white so I could start.

I have to ask, does it look pink? In my eyes it seems a bit more like old pink! You know what I mean? It looks a bit vintage and I think this is what Farrow & Ball wanted with this colour I reckon. It’s a soft colour but on the other hand it also gives a warm and powdery feeling!

Pink can be a very overwhelming colour and I like to wear it and have it in my hair. I love every picture with pink colour tones in it. But I can understand how it’s harsh on a wall. I would suggest Sulking Room Pink if you want an other colour than beige or brown for the cozy feeling at home!

Are you sold? If so, not just for your wall but anything else in your house that can pump up its appearance, here is the link – Sulking Room Pink
