As long as the color isn't too powdery, pale pink paint combines the best of cool and warm color effects. It's serene and appears to recede, but its rosiness warms the room. Choose your pale pink carefully. Pink with just a hint of yellow whispers sunlight, but pink tinted with blue tends to go cold. Pink also flatters most complexions. For instance, lighting designers and photographers sometimes use pink bulbs to minimize wrinkles and make people look younger.
