It’s February…the month of love, and romance, and valentines. What better time to see a little eye candy with some pink, right?
Unfortunately, I have a slight problem with showing you all of this….
I don’t like pink. 🙁
I really never have. I don’t remember wearing it at all as a child. There is not one dab of it inside our house, and if you read the post on our master bedroom closet, you saw there is no pink in all of my wardrobe.
Even after having two sons, I never bought our daughter pink clothing. I think she might have had one pink outfit as a toddler. And her nursery decor? Yellow walls, white furniture, and all the linens were white with a red cherry print. 🙂
So this post is definitely for you. (My mother has probably fallen out of her chair at the sight of all this pink on the blog today, since she knows how I feel about the color.)
But that doesn’t mean that I don’t think these rooms are pretty. On the contrary, I do think they are very pretty. They look very feminine, but my tastes run towards more tailored spaces for our family. I like rooms that I feel both men and women would be comfortable in. But if you are a fan of pink and pretty, you might want to check out some of the rooms by Tracey Rapisardi, like the one below. She is one of the queens of pretty! 🙂
If I were to do a room in pink, it would have to be a little girl’s room like one of these.
You may remember this pink stripe room from this year’s HGTV Dream Home.
(Have you entered to win it?)
If we had on old Victorian home, pink would be quite fitting for the exterior.
Or…if we had this cute little cottage in Seaside, I wouldn’t mind it being the color of cotton candy. (By the way, the name of this cottage is Precious. 🙂 )
And Precious happens to be the guest cottage that goes with this pink home…Savannah Rose.
Now there is one color combination with pink, that I would consider using for a girl’s room in this house. And I probably like it because it seems more tailored….hot pink with navy.
I like that combination with a lot of white for contrast.
You might remember that our daughter’s dorm room was done in hot pink, navy, and white last fall. (She still doesn’t wear much pink, but there is certainly pink in her decorating! 🙂 )
Last December, Talbots’ catalog featured a page with all of this clothing. I loved the combinations…tailored and feminine…and seriously thought about getting the vest and gloves (and perhaps the sweater and skirt. 🙂 )
Maybe there is hope for some pink in my life yet!
So…do you and your home wear pink?
We’d love to know. 🙂
