If I had a flower
for every time I thought of you,
I could walk in my garden forever.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
In my paint trends for the coming year (blog 2/13/15), I predicted warm tones of plum, burgundy, garnet, pink, and coral would be popular. These color trends also translate into home decor for choosing furniture and accessories.
I needed some pink today so I decided to do an entry ALL ABOUT PINK. It’s one of my favorite colors. It’s bright and uplifting.
The pink bedroom photo with the fuschia damask wallpaper sure is bright! In spite of the large damask print wallpaper and matching drapes, I love how it was toned down with lots of white and touches of blue. Of course, I do really love the blue french country desk.
Next to that photo is the living room with the pink couch which comes from hydrangea hill cottage blogspot. There are lots more English decor chic photos there. The couch is actually a striped fabric with several English country pillows. The floor-to-ceiling windows with box valances give this home a castle feel, yet it seems very cozy.
On the far right is a pink and tan bedroom. Pink is an accent here with fuschia pillows and light pink comforter. It’s very neutral with the tan walls, chair,and tan drape that appears to enclose the bed if pulled across.
The pink palette (top right) includes white, light pink, rose, olive, and gray.
A fresh, country living room with white furniture is a very light and airy space. Pink accents add energy and spark; with the drapes, throw, area rug, and beautiful pink cabinet.
The two pink, french side tables have an antique touch of gold. They would be a great addition to any bedroom or living room.
The shabby chic palette next to the peonies are muted pinks, mint and olive greens.
Next to the palette is a lovely tufted armchair with delicate pink, white, and gold ottoman.
Here is the front view of the pink glass-front cabinet.
I ran across the cutest pink car and wanted to share. It’s a Fiat that was in their showroom in London, done in honor of Barbie’s 50th anniversary. It’s supposedly in Barbie’s favorite pink nail polish.
Have a wonderfully pink day!!
