sunshine, lollipops...

Pink seems to be one of those colours you either love or hate. The hue that normally conjures images of babies and candy and well...Barbie.

I personally love pink but admittedly I've never decorated with it - maybe because I've pretty much always lived with a man. House Beautiful's March 2011 issue was basically dedicated to pink and I have to say I fell in love. Though I'm pretty sure my husband would have an absolute hot fit if he came home to a pink room. Perhaps some day when I have a home office that doesn't do double duty as the dining room!

Pink is also surprisingly neutral, at least the paler shades. I would pair it with greys, and silvers and whites (heck even black!) for a cooler modern palette or taupes, creams, browns, brass and gold for a warmer palette and if you want colour - how about orange, green or turqoise.

Some faves:

( - paint colour pink cloud Benjamin Moore)


( - paint colour Bridal Pink by Benjamin Moore)

What would I put in a pink bedroom?

When will someone pay me to put a room together? This would be so much more fun if I could actually shop with someone else's money!

  1. Thanks for the pinks!. I really like the room in Bridal Pink by BM. It was actually one of the swatches I had picked up. But in the sample I didn't like it as well. I'll probably have to actually try a few colours on the wall.
