Dusky pastel pink shade "Penelope" has been unveiled as Graham & Brown's Color of the Year for 2018.

With pink being all the rage right now, the color and wallpaper experts have identified the pink paint shade as "one step ahead of the millennial pink phenomenon." They say Penelope pinpoints the color of the moment and adds a level of sophistication that catapults the shade into 2018.

Graham & Brown's delicate shade of pink was inspired by Greek goddess, Penelope. Celebrated for her faithfulness, patience and feminine virtue, this beautiful tone is uncomplicated and dainty, and perfect for your living space.


Paula Talyor, Graham & Brown's color & trend specialist, says: 'This comforting, blush color palette works to create a warm spring feeling in your home. Chic and neutral, it can standalone or work perfectly when combined with the flowering pink magnolias seen in the Pierre wallpaper."

Penelope also complements G&B's 2018 Wallpaper of the Year, Pierre — an elegant magnolia print, which is a nod to the botanicals trend.
