There is no mistaking that this colour evokes dark pink peony flowers. A colour-savvy friend convinced me to paint my stairwell in Benjamin Moore's Peony Pink 2089-30 as a foil for the medium-dark parquet flooring I couldn't afford to replace. It was daring, but gorgeous and modern. Benjamin Moore is counting on a similar luscious pink shade, Royal Flush 2076-20 for 2011. "This berry-kissed colour can be grounded when combined with neutrals or fashionable greys, yet swings to the exotic when teamed with other brights," says Grech. Here, it's used on a bedroom accent wall. Shown: Royal Flush 2076-20 (accent wall), Benjamin Moore.
