Well slap me silly and call me a girly-girl. Something disturbing is going on in my chroma spectrum. I am liking Pink.
I’ve never been a pink lady. As a child I never begged for a bubble gum room. I haven’t day dreamed of a pink wedding. Feminine hints just don’t call my name. But you know what is catching my eye lately? Raspberry accents. Hot Fuchsia pops. Light Plum surprises. Warm, energetic, bold and delightful. I like bad ass pink.
I love pink when its used as a (mildy) shocking element. A surprise in the room that infuses energy and playfulness….
These days, even the softer side of pink is pulling at my heart strings. As a singular element it can be so soft and welcoming. (Well maybe that’s just the day bed?)
So how can you add some into your life?
The easiest way to incorporate pink is through pillows, obviously. You know I love the way pillows delivery maximum joy with minimum commitment.
If your willing to take a bigger step. Go for an original piece of art. Right now I’m crushing “Neon Graffiti” by Nicole Cohen. This piece doesn’t scream pink, but the little touches really get me excited. Only $300 for a 36×40 unstretched canvas! I’d love it framed in gold and hung over a sofa.
Yes, friends, that’s a West Elm Parsons Desk. Normally $300, I scored mine second hand for $40. It had a few scratches and dents, but nothing a super shiny coat of pink couldn’t hide.
