This Benjamin Moore hue is unique in its ability to make pink accessible to all. Proposal reads more blush than pink and positions itself as the mature older sister of the baby pink we all divorced decades ago. Pink has been reclaimed with the growing popularity of millennial pink and has been endorsed as a colour that can provide a neutral backdrop in interior spaces. Proposal is the perfect way to incorporate a trend into your bedroom without going overboard; this paint tone is trendy enough to satisfy your current colour craving and neutral enough to stand the test of time.
