Behr Coral Fountain: a complete color review

Looking for the perfect coral pink paint color? Check out Behr Coral Fountain – a gorgeous choice!

I was so excited to have a daughter so I had an excuse to paint a room pink! I had always dreamed of a modern coral-pink nursery, and was excited to find Coral Fountain!

This color is bold – there is nothing light or pastel about it – but it is muted so it doesn’t at all feel neon.

It’s a beautiful, modern option if you want a pink space!

Best uses

I used Coral Fountain in my daughter’s nursery. It’s a bold pink color that you probably wouldn’t use for a whole room other than a child’s bedroom.

However, it’s great for:

  • A modern feminine accent wall
  • A piece of refinished furniture
  • An accent ceiling
  • A front door
  • Bathroom cabinets

Coordinating Colors

This is a very warm pink color that pairs well with creamy shades – tans or slightly off whites, especially. The white that we paired it with is Behr Papier Blanc, which is just on the creamy warm side of pure white.

It also pairs well with “tropical colors” such as keylime green, a deeper leafy green, sky blue, and bright yellow. We paired it with a punchy turquoise in our daughters room (Behr Tower Bridge) and I love the combo!

Finally, this color pops with deep dark neutrals – a dark black, deep charcoal, navy blue, or even a deep forest green.

Trim Colors

I prefer to pair warm colors like Coral Fountain with a creamy white trim color with warm undertones.
