Tickled Pink

While pink has the effect of instantly putting a smile on your face, it also is a wary color to be used in decorating. Pink can often have a somewhat juvenile result leaving any use of the color left to a little girl’s room or in last week’s floral arrangement. However, whenever I see pink used by expert decorators it leaves a room with a fresh and feminine feel. Pink can be used to soften a space or give it a colorful edge. The wonderful thing about pink is that it has the ability to be daring and unexpected when employed in interiors.

Whether you woke up on the right side of the bed or want to go back to bed, starting your Tuesday with an infusion of perfectly pink spaces may be just what the alarm clock ordered!

BEK Design Brushstroke Lamp in Pink

I have recently stumbled upon these amazing brushstroke lamps by Jana of BEK Design. She can custom make any color of your choice. Gegan (my grandmother) is looking for a pair of “Ming Yellow” lamps. Any suggestions??

Pink Chinosierie Bedroom via House Beautiful

I’ll never forget falling in love with this pink chinoiserie wallpaper in the smalls spaces, big design issue of House Beautiful a few years ago. People can scare of print in smaller scaled rooms, but don’t! I think small spaces make the biggest impact with pattern.
