2. Pale Powder 204 — Farrow & Ball
“Like a true blonde — and those who want to be one — this pale blue-green is complex and enchanting. Throughout the day, it changes from robin’s-egg blue to gray-green, radiating a subtle glow that makes both people and furnishings look like the best versions of themselves. Pair it with moss-green velvet upholstery, modern art, and black-lacquer chinoiserie.” — SARAH BARTHOLOMEW
3.Deep Forest Pine 30GG 09/106 — Glidden
“I’m just back from Paris, and this green was everywhere — on people in the street, on the accessories and furniture in the antiques shops on the Rue Jacob, and even at the flea market. Imagine how great it would look in a dining room. It would really set off a face, as well as a painting. Do it in lacquer for a beautiful sheen.” — SUZANNE KASLER
4.Antiguan Sky 2040-60 — Benjamin Moore
“Aqua is a calming color, which balances a fiery red-head like myself and makes for a pretty room. Actually, most people look good in aqua, and when you look good, you feel more confident. I often like to use a range of one color, so I might add a darker teal or Prussian blue. Red or pink would punch it up and give it more pizzazz.” — LINDSEY CORAL HARPER
5. Dance of the Goddesses 23-1A — Valspar.
“You know how beautiful a pearl necklace looks against skin? Maybe that’s why this appeals to me. It’s the softest, most luminous pearl with just the slightest hint of pink. Paired with silver hardware, cream trim, and Thassos marble, it would make the most elegant dressing room. Add slate or navy to intensify the effect with some contrast and drama.” — JOAN CRAIG
6. Calamine 230 — Farrow & Ball
“While watching the Academy Awards, I was struck by how beautiful the starlets looked in pink. They simply glowed! What better color to surround yourself with in your bathroom? Simply fill the tub and feel pretty, calm, and soothed. No plastic surgery needed here…just a glass of pink Champagne! Cheers!” — MELANIE TURNER
