Pleasing Pink Decor

When most think of utilizing pink in home decor, they gravitate toward images of something concocted by strawberry shortcake meets Miss Piggy meets fairy princess. That’s not always the case. While it does tend to indicate a feminine touch and is not necessarily right for an entire color scheme, when done right it can be breathtakingly lovely. I love the fabulous girliness of a pink couch or pink wall. I’m not sure Ro would go for the mirrored bed covered in lush blush but he might be amenable to a few touches here and there.

The more I look at these rooms laced with pink, the more I love it. Most of these lovely images were found via {this is glamorous} which I must say is my very favorite blog out there.

In my dressing room

As I’ve posted, I’m moving. It seems very far away (I haven’t packed) but it is actually fast approaching (two weeks). I found a sweet little bungalow in the downtown area of Fayetteville. It has a backyard and a porch swing and original wood floors. It’s rather small – the kitchen, the bathroom, the closets – but it will be just me living there with my puppies and visitors of course. Still, small bathroom & closet? What’s a fashion-conscious, jewelry-collecting, shoe-hoarder supposed to do? Light at the end of the tunnel: There is a second bedroom! I, without any hesitation, decided to make that room my dressing room. Aren’t those a lovely couple of words? It’s a small room, mind you, but I plan to make it as girly and artsy and feminine as possible. Can’t wait to post pics! For now, some inspiration…
