“It is a neutral blush tone that blends with many colors and has the softest black undertone that add a measure of depth and sophistication. It is soothing to the eye and works equally as well as a background for a subtle creamy palette, but can also serve as a contrast to a stronger color statement.” —

"There’s nothing like the whispery softness of Domingue’s mineral paint in Primrose. Deeply matte but also incredibly luminous, it’s a barely-there pink that falls somewhere between 'Oh, that’s not white?' and the lightest, freshest, most cottony blush you can imagine. It’s hard to describe, but I swear you feel like everything’s all right with the world when you’re enveloped by it. That’s a lot for a paint color to accomplish, don’t you think?" –

"Blush is a color that I rarely use in the interiors I design, but I’ve been working on a unicorn-themed bedroom and I wanted to make the ceiling and the headboard wall pink. Once I came across this blush-toned color, it threw me for a loop! It’s fun, vibrant, and just too pretty for its own good. And once it was on the ceiling and wall, I was in love." —

"It is the most wonderful shade—not too pink, not too peach. It has a luminous effervescence that reminds me of of my favorite Billecart-Salmon champagne.
