Pink, Part Deux

 

In no particular order, in a random frenzy of “oooh I like that!” thoughts, I’m continuing my summer romance with color.  Enjoy some pink, pink and more pink!

Isn’t it satisfying to know that one decorative accessory, one single purchase,  like a magenta throw pillow can totally transform a room?  I love that!

Art mats… another simple detail that adds so much!

Truth be told, a pink bathroom is probably the first and only room I’d paint pink myself.  A whimsical little space and a rosy complexion sound like a good thing to me!

Carolina Herrera Jr.’s bathroom with stripes, posies, and a cowhide… trying to balance out the feminity factor maybe???  I love the child’s chair that is used as a surface for setting towels and toiletries next to the pedestal sink- what a great idea!

Slipcovers and stripes are quintessential summer.

Mmm… dining al fresco in Provence.  I love bougainvillea matching chair cushions!

The Pink House.

The Dining Room in the Pink House mixes hot and petal pink together, which I really like.  It keeps from getting a too-decorated look.

See, another room where pinks are mixed and look even better… especially with lots and lots of white!  India Hicks summer house feels so breezy and light with this palette.

Running out to the store and picking up a pretty orchid or flower is certainly my go-to solution for short-term color love.  And a tropical orchid is perfect for summer.

Another flower, another quick addition of a throw pillow and voila, pink perfection.

Not for the faint of heart!

Even thought here are different shades of pink here, it’s formal furniture and arrangement is bordering the “too-decorated” look to me… it’s stiff.   I actually love the elements on their own, but together it’s looking like Barbie’s Georgetown Playhouse… ooch I’m getting harsh.

Now this room breaks and makes the rules in a different way- mostly ne shade of pink (though it still does have some deeper fuschias and a red), but it’s more relaxed while still being slightly formal.  What’s the magic element- the pink linen slipcovers of course!

I love these perfectly measured doses of raspberry pink that Suellen Gregory uses.  It’s pink with some sass and sophistication.

Watermelon pink and a bold print inject so much life into this living room!

If I lived in a historical colonial house I think I’d break tradition and do something unexpected like this peony pink wall too.  Doesn’t it just make the most perfect backdrop?

Taking a cue from this guy who is now either totally content or thoroughly tired of pink, goodnight!

I SO LOVE LOVE LOVE PINK! That silver mirror in that bathroom is to die for and you KNOW how I love silver too! That bed in Suellen Gregory's room is stunning. Great pix, great post. I enjoyed it!

I am so loving pink right now and even if it's just a phase I'm going through, I'm going to get something to satisfy my addiction. I think throw pillows would be best. I'll cover my orange & brown toile with a pink stripe for summer!

Love this Pink Post. My sofa has hot pink (velvet) cushions (but the frame is fresh green). I find pink irresistible, when it is not too girlie-candy-baby.
