If all you've read of my blog is the title bar, you know my favorite color is PINK! Okay, it's actually my second favorite. Anyway, I was thrilled with the latest issue of House Beautiful; a tribute to the loveliest color of all. It inspired me to contact that prospective client for whom I've been envisioning a pink room. She's the only one with the guts. (Let's just let them all be flattered into submission by that statement :)

It also inspired me to post some of my favorite pink pics I've had filed away for years. I'll leave out my own pink office. You've seen enough of that--for now. I am currently refreshing it. Of course, I'm keeping the 80's pink chandelier, and the pink bookcases!

Unless it's in a young girl's room, I think pink should always be grounded with black, or especially, NAVYIt keeps it from feeling too frilly or feminine.

Do I even need to source this room? His name is practically printed all over the walls.

This is Betsey Johnson's NYC loft. Love her, love the space. I think this is how I like a pink room best; very eclectic, with lots of high contrast and bright artwork. Come to think of it, that's how I like any room.

How about you? Would you paint your dining room, living room, kitchen any shade of pink?

  1. My daughter's room is pepto bismol pink with black and red accents. It's all very girly in a bold, modern barbie way. I framed big picts of old movie stars in black frames & hung them all over. Also, my bedroom (that I allow my husband to sleep in) is pale peachy pink. It's a little more traditional than my daughter's room, very parisian with pale green accents, a gold bed corona and all gold picture frames. I have painted some ceilings the palest of pinks. I read that some designer said that it makes everyone glow. If you do it pale enough people don't even notice why there is a glow. GO PINK! Even Pantone agrees.

    I'd love to see pictures of your room. I love that idea, painted the ceiling a very pale pink. I'm going to try that!


Please, tell me what you think. And share this on facebook!
