Pretty in Pink…


I am the youngest child of 5 in my family. I was born 4 years after the 3rd boy. My mom was thrilled to finally have another baby girl. All that said…she surrounded me in pink!

My childhood room was a vision in Pink & White. Imagine…blush pink walls, white canopy bed with LOTS of ruffles, and pink shag carpet! Yes…I was destined to become a “Girly Girl”!


This is not my actual bedroom…oh how I wish I had a photo of it!
 
 
For the longest time, I have avoided the color pink. I have never used it in my décor…not since I was 8yrs. old any way. I rarely ever wear it. I have even shied away form buying pink flowers and plants for my yard. Thanks Mom!

However, lately I have found myself being drawn back to this beautiful feminine shade…

 
Pretty pink..
 
 
I especially like it when it is mixed in with aged and vintage pieces…

As a mom of two boys myself, there has not ever been a lot of pink in my home. I remember thinking I will never be able to shop on the “pink aisle” at the toy store! You know the one, with all the barbies, dolls, ponies, and such! To be honest…I was OK with that. But now, as my boys have grown up, I am ready to add some shades of pink into my world.
 
There are some simple ways to start adding more pink into my home, like flowers and accessories…
 
 
sparkly pink pillows...
 
 
 
heavenly...
 
 
 
peonies.
 
 
I am even ready to add more pink to my wardrobe…

  1. I grew up with 3 brothers, so I got a lot of pink growing up as well. And, having two girls...we still have a lot of pink! LOL I however am loving the blush shades currently. Soft and feminine.

  3. Having never decorated with a lot of pink, I took the plunge with our latest and last renovation/move and painted my library a rich pink. The shelves, mouldings, cabinets and accessories are mostly white. It was a bold move on my part, but it's such a girly, fru-fru look and I love it. It's such a happy color.
