Oooooh Pink!



Oh dear! I'm so in love with pink right now, it's just ridiculous! I don't really know how it happened - it really did just creep up on me.... After all, I think it's fair to say that I absolutely did detest pink for the longest time - it was either too baby girl, too vibrant, too feisty, too subdued - never quite right. And, well, you all only know too well that I simply can't live with it! But lately, pink has just been rocking my socks off - in the most decorative way, of course.... And so, this Sunday eve, some pink to ponder!

I know what you mean. Pink was not a colour a liked until recently and now cannot get enough of it. Although I am currently having a yellow obsession!

As someone who spent a good part of my life living in a fairy floss pink painted house I have also had a major aversion to pink once I moved out of home. But I am really attracted to pinks with any hint of yellow in them. Watermelon, corals, and even peach - love them!

I'm a huge fan of pink - these pics are absolutely gorgeous. I'll have that chair in the top pic, and I've gotta say, I LOVE that yellow door in the top pic too!!

I'm a pink lover as well, S. I've used it for my new home office in a masc-meets-fem style scheme. Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Yeah, I too was over pink, especially baby pink, pretty pink as my old business logo was all girly and pretty in pink. Now that I have had a break from it, hot pink is starting to fire me up too. I started with a handbag.. thought that was safe. A-M xx

I LOVE it when people use pink when they decorate!! Not many do. Wish I had the guts to ;-)

Shannon, I'm a PINK tragic. I try to get over it when it's not in fashion but I can't help myself. I feel happy in a pink cardigan and a pink room.

I love these vibrant pinks! You have to be so careful with pink, lest it look too babyish, but these spaces are just lovely. I would love to do our guest room all in pinks, have to see what my husband says! XO!
