When my friends at Ace reached out with an opportunity to work together – I knew that this was an opportunity to find a perfect shade I’ve been thinking of in my office.
A little background –
Ace is hosting their biggest sale of the year and this year customers can visit their participating store from 11am to 2pm to enter Ace’s first-ever Color of the Year contest. Meaning you can create and name your own paint color for a chance to become Ace’s 2019 Color of the Year
and win $1000 in Ace gift cards.
Mixing your own paint color is not only fun, but really easy.
I was given primary colors to mix a little of this and that to create any color.
For this project, I started with a room that is long overdue on a fresh coat of paint.
And I loved it. It was when it was my daughters room and it just felt absolutely warm
and wrap you up good.
And I will be sharing what is going on in the other half of the room very soon.
More about ACE here
but the custom color and thoughts are all my own.
Are Ace Paints Benjamin Moore paints?
Wondering because I always get my Benny Moore paints through local Ace hardware stores.

Love the quiet peaceful and joyful feeling of your pink!

I absolutely love this color….I have been drawn to blush over the winter and into the spring. I've bought tops and jewelry in this color and low and behold, you create it!!!!! You must have an art background because it is hard to mix colors and not have them turn muddy. You are an inspiration!!!!
P.S. I just did a post on wreaths and referenced you.
Sue Malizia says
Your color is so pretty!!! I'd buy it! Good luck…hope you win. =)
Of course you are going to win…. helloooo this is so beautiful Courtney! ????????????????
A hint of pink, blush. I use to go to a Shabby chic store and I thought it wasn't me, think Autumnal colors. But your blog changed my mine, the elegance, beauty and flowers:). You made me appreciate the style.
I do hope you win too,

Your blush pink is PERFECT. I want it!!! If only this was available at Ace. It is absolutely the touch of color I'm looking for for my bedroom in the new house I'm purchasing. It's not too bright or bold; very understated and "barely there." LOVE IT. Hope you win!!!
Holliday Johnson says
The color is absolutely yummy! I can't wait to see the rest of the room!
A beautiful amd great choice.
Love this color, in fact, that is the color I've been looking for to put on my den walls! The den is also my "space" computer, books and more books, photos, ceramic figurines, just my space to be. Good luck on the contest!
Donna Lynn says
Hope you win, because this is such a perfect shade of blush!!!

Hi, Courtney. How fun to create your own paint color–I LOVE this color! I have moved recently and Ace is just a hop, skip and jump away. I have already taken advantage of that convenience several times and expect it to continue! Hope you win!
Sophie's mom says
Wow, I would never have thought that yellow mixed in would create that beautiful blush color, really pretty with the white fireplace and that desk.
I love your color, and I'm really impressed at your bravery/willingness to just try to mix your ideal color. Pink is my favorite color and it appears in 3 of the 4 rooms in my condo – from the master bedroom which is overwhelmingly pink(s) to my living room which has pink(s) as the color that goes with the primarily tan/grey/brown/charcoal scheme to my in-progress DIY kitchen reno. Keep the pinks coming please!
