Pinking of you…

I’m normally not a huge fan of pink. Yes, I love it on my book covers, toe nails and even the occasional cupcake, but in decorating terms it always screamed nursery to me.



That was my thinking a couple of years ago, but now I can’t get enough of pink. I don’t have any of it in my home so when I saw the chance to use it on the patio chairs I jumped at the chance.



That though was not enough. I was dying to use a pale barely there pink shade in my SIL’s living room. It got vetoed, but I’m a sore loser so here are some fabulous rooms that perfect having that hint of pink!

So, are you tickled pink? Do you love it light and airy or bold and bright?

I am tickled pink- I wish my BF liked pink like I do...what is it with men and pink? Its a great color!!

I adore the pink-especially in the bedrooms. So dreamy and sweet. Kind of like cotton candy!

Our daughter is a complete tomboy, so pink is a color that simply does not exist in her wardrobe or bedroom (except in small accents). Should we be blessed with another daughter during our next pregnancy, however, I'd love to think these rooms will serve as a direct inspiration for her uber feminine nursery.

Thank you!

I'm not a huge pink fan, but there are some cases where it just works! The pictures you posted would be some of those!

i like it pale and bright (just depending) but always in small amounts.

That domino room with the venetian mirror is to-die-for! Also, loving the mirrored bedside table with the pink...I have to say, I really have become enamored with the combo of pink + mirror... my boyfriend would DIE if I tried to put that anywhere in the house, tho. Sigh :-( Hopefully, I'll have a daughter one day so I can enact all my girly-style decor ideas :-)

One thing to note about pink rooms - its extremely flattering on most skin tones. So its a great color for a dining room or anywhere you entertain (if you are brave enough to coat your walls in it!)

Love pink in small doses. Light and airy for sure.

I'm not crazy over pink, but it's probably bc I know that it would never make the decorating cut in my house. My hubby is pretty laid back abt what I choose, but he'd totally veto pink.

I do love that second to last living room!

FABULOUS!

I was going to paint my new vanity white because my Prince thinks pink would be a bit much, but this just settled it. Pink is it! I am going paint it light pink and put crystal knobs on the drawer pull. I'll post pictures when I'm done. :)

I love all shades of pink. It's a hard one to put into practice though because the boys are all so scared of it. Boo!

I have always liked pink but recently have become obsessed with it. These rooms are beautiful.

Michelle said...

These are stunning, but the truth is, I'd like them in a different palette. Just not a pink kinda girl. They are all amazing spaces...do they come in brown and red? LOL

Thanks!
Michelle

I love pink and I'm really into bright pink now. I really love pink and grey together. So cute. Thanks for the post.

Vitania said...

Some really lovely photos of pink in there.. very soft, and feminine yes, but we all need a little space to call our own don't we?

I love pink - I have not always been that way, it is now an aquired taste that has developed over the past 5 years or so - (right around the time I fell in love . . .) and I really like the contrast of different shades of pink in a room or design. Thanks for sharing

Ah, I am always drawn to pink, no matter how much I've tried to fight it! Hope all is well! XX

Gorgeous rooms. I too am beginning to warm up to the idea of pinks outside of a nursery setting... the results can be fab! So glad you shared your chair project, as well as these rooms, with all of us. :)

Blair said...

Oh, I so love pale pink and girl color these days! Funny-I never thought I would like it after I decided I was "too old" for it at 12:) Happy Weekend. xx

Jolena said...

I love pink.. and I love pink and black together.. very chic... I prefer the light and airy.. and I have to say.. I clicked on your chair link and I love it.. but when I saw your label at the bottom that said "trash to treasure" I gasped and then laughed.. My fiance' teases me all the time about my love for "trash to treasure"! I use the esact saying and it is seriously my favorite hobby! I am so glad I found your blog and am adding you to my blog roll!
