Burgeoning Chic of Pink


If you lived in the UK you could get a David Austin rose bouquet delivered to your front door.  This is a newer shade called Kiera.  The shades of pink in this are perfection.

Or would you rather go with the "2011 Color of the Year."  Honeysuckle.

It is energizing.  I used it on a tablescape last summer.  

I remember this color being preppy.

I remember this color somewhere else....oh yes, Elle.

 Did the runways cause this stir in our living rooms?


 I don't know, I think this color shouts tween to me.

So what does pink look like if it grows up?  Remember Meggie Cleary's "Ashes of Roses" dress from the Thorn Birds.

Or how about Natalie Portman's coat in the movie Black Swan?  Love this look... although she does look a little edgy.  

Pink; for all of it's attention grabbing looks, will be a safe bet in flowers.

This looks pretty safe to me too.  Some pillows, a throw, and a coffee mug in the chic pink of the moment.  When your coffee mug breaks a new color will be in style.

Or my personal favorite pink; a little closer to Meggie's dress, makes a great pillow.  Available in my Etsy shop now.

Having a little fun with the fashion and the trends of interior design.  I will be joining Beverly for Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.
Last week Beverly asked us to find one new blog and feature them on our blog this week.  I happened on Girl in Pink.

 Amanda has a great blog where she shows off her found treasures for us to drool over.
 Go and check her blog out and tell her I sent you.
