pink power…

Did anyone see the Grammy’s? Wasn’t Pink‘s performance awesome? Well I think the colour pink is awesome too (wireless technology allows me to actually hear you groaning about that segue…really).

Pink has been unfairly maligned since the crazy 1980’s when everything looked like I was wearing rose-coloured glasses (circa Miami Vice). My sister even built a house that had pink EVERYWHERE…even the floor tiles…good times. I’m not suggesting we go overboard with pink, I just think it’s such a beautiful colour, which flatters every complexion (I should really write a book about designing rooms that accentuate our looks when we’re in them). Used in moderation, I think it’s perfect.

I just had to indulge myself this morning by hunting for some pink, and here are the results. I hope it gives you a little Friday inspiration (yippeeee…I love Fridays…so much promise for the weekend ahead). Put some pink in your life this weekend, even if it’s just the prettiest pink-iced cupcake you can find. Vive la Rose!

I came across a great blog called Shelter, and I just couldn’t resist staring at this photo. The black houndstooth and the peachy pink are such a great combo–and I could swoon over that tufted headboard. What little girl (young or old) wouldn’t want to snuggle into that bed!!!

One of my favourite interior designers, Tobi Fairley, featured this photo on her blog. That pink velvet chair must be mine! Notice how it works with the cool-toned pink wall colour. I once heard that pink is a colour that never clashes with itself–it can be used together in different variations (now that I think about it, can’t any colour be used with itself?). If there are any colour aficionados reading this, please let me know if that’s true or not.

Ooh la la. What a gorgeous bed. What a gorgeous carpet. What sumptuous bed linens. That’s it…I’m packing my bags and moving to Paris immediately–Mark, meet me at the airport with the kids and dogs!

How ‘s this for shmexy? I found this image on photographer, Adam Chinitz‘ website. Definitely not my mother’s idea of how a lady is supposed to decorate (don’t worry, she’d get a kick out that comment). I love it!

Sigh…now this is just bliss. Somebody pick me up off the floor…I think I just fainted

The combination of hot pink and silver is striking. Check out Sarah Klassen’s blog Haute Design for more fabulous pink decor.

There. I feel better now that I’ve had my fix of pink. Don’t you?

  1. hmmmm. Nicole, you are forgetting just one pink thing……..I’ll give you a hint……it is a vintage car and it is sitting down at Crescent Beach with my name on it!
    I can just see me pedaling up the hill to work with that beautiful blue necklace on. I think it will be a fabulous combination!!!!!!

  2. Dirty girl you may just comment enough to get that blue necklace, I will be watching out my window to see you pedal up the street in that pink car with the blue necklace on…..

  3. I really like the hot pink/silver combo. It’s one I’ve never really thought of before.
    Pink’s always been one of my favorite colors – and the color of my bedroom. So that my husband could walk into the room without screwing his eyes shut, I balanced it out with black and white accessories/touches. I think, though, that the hot pink/silver may be the next thing I experiment with.

    The pink velvet chair in the Tobi Fairley picture is very nice, but the orange striped one is just wonderful! Not only is the color great, but it looks big enough to curl up in.
