In February we reflect on various aspects of love and compassion. This includes self-care and meaningful connections with the people and experiences that hold special significance in our lives. The BEHR February Colour of the Month, Malted N160-3 is a light mauve brown that enhances spaces with a warm glow. This barely-there neutral pink hue creates a sense of understated sophistication in most living spaces. This gentle pink reminds us of the importance of fostering a harmonious balance between self-care, personal growth and meaningful relationships.
