Hot Pink Paint Colours
Hot pink paint colours are having a moment thanks to the Barbie film released in July 2023. Barbiecore is taking over the world of fashion and interiors with colour-drenching walls and woodwork in shades of hot pink, tonal soft furnishings and accents added all over to create a maximalist look at home.
We stock hot pink paint from all the top trade paint brands that can be colour matched to any of the colours you see below or elsewhere, as well as the designer ranges themselves such as Little Greene, Farrow and Ball, Dulux Heritage, Craig & Rose, Paint and Paper Library and Benjamin Moore.

How To Create a Hot Pink Colour Scheme
If you are looking for a Hot Pink paint colour scheme throughout a room or area of your home, you should start by buying some sample pots in coordinating pink shades.
You might want to consider painting your woodwork the same colour as the walls, often seen in period properties, known as colour drenching, or painting them a shade lighter or darker pink as a contrast.
Don't forget the ceiling. Leaving it bright white can throw the whole scheme off so try a lighter shade here or wrap the colour from the walls over the ceiling too for a harmonious finish.
Farrow and Ball Nancy's Blushes is a sweet, true pink colour. It looks great against a bright white or paired with Farrow and Ball Middleton Pink as a softer trim colour.
Benjamin Moore Peony is a deep, showy pink. Use it on the ceiling as shown to create a hot pink wrap-around feeling and add accents in the room on furniture or the trim of a mirror to tie it all in.
Little Greene Mischief is a deep fuschia, almost magenta colour. Use it on a floor and skirting boards as shown to create a sea of hot pink.
Where to use Hot Pink paint colours?
Hot pink paint isn't for the faint-hearted. If you're feeling brave and ready to fully embrace Barbiecore, use a hot pink on wooden stairs or flooring or on all four walls with a softer pink ceiling and trim throughout to create a tonal look in a living room or bedroom. If you're looking to add hot pinks to your home without going all out Barbie vibes, paint furniture, mirrors, doors or add soft furnishings.
Little Greene Leather is the brightest of hot pinks. Pair it with Little Greene Loft White as shown, in a large living or dining area.
Use a soft pink like Crown Trade Fair Dust in a bedroom to create a calming pink space.
Use a hot pink in your outdoor space as shown here with Little Greene Carmine.
