Impassioned for Pink


I hate pink! That was my mantra.
Then pink hit the design scene in a fresh way.

I was the mom who fought putting pink on my two daughters. I tried to ignore the requests for the pink bicycles, & pink backpacks. I don't know what has since happened, but the recent score of interior spaces being transformed due to the power of pink has sucked me in. Even after all these years. Now I want a pink room. If not in a grand scale, then in accents, or upholstery, or better yet, wallpaper. If it makes you feel good, then try it.
Power to people who are brave enough to go pink. Remember, for tomorrow you can always repaint.

I was the same way about pink and now I love it. I even had our powder room painted a hot pink not long ago. It's such a happy color. Thanks for visiting my blog and the lovely comments.

What a fun post. I was never much into pink, either, until I started seeing some really interesting things being done with it over the last few years. Not sure I'm ready to use it in my own house, but I enjoy seeing it in others. Great pics! :-)
