With the rejoicing songs of birds of a feather, it’s been a day of sun behind clouds and falling rain. I’ve been reading some of my design magazines on line. And nearly all of them have a design in PINK section, where every tone and shade of pink can be put into our homes. From kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, fridges,mirrors and wardrobes.

One of my favourite magazines is House Beautiful, from designer tips to choosing colours, I know I can get lost for hours.

…we pulled the pink into several accessories and details, but in a very subtle way so that the house wasn’t overly feminine—we wanted it to be light and airy but not too beachy in a resort-like way. I’m known for my use of color, but I really only use it as an accent,” says Suzanne Kasler

Subtle tonal pinks, I love. Icy frosty pink I love on cakes, I’ve even worn pink shoes. I love to dream about owning one of those Marie Antoinette dresses and living in that era.  And Chanel has always been known for pink.

Think of your childhood, does a colour come to mind?

Maybe Pink.

Candy sticks, fairy floss, bubble gum, and please, let’s hope photo’s can’t be found of me dressed up at the Grease premier as one of the Pink Ladies.

    • There are so many tones of pinks from brights to pastels…I love the cottage gardens full of pink hues.

  1. I”m not the biggest pink fan in the world, but I do make an exception for flowers and your collages are so pretty darling. A feast of delicate images. Just lovely 🙂

    • Thank you Joanna…I know that not everyone likes pink, some days it just surrounds you and you play along with it! x

  2. OOOOooo yummmy!
    There is a little girl girl in all of us waiting to wear a tutu and pearls in the softest shade of pink…..well~ or may just look at the pics 🙂

  3. I’ve always been attracted to pink. During the long Canadian winters, my sisters send me a little pink thought on my birthday in February. It lifts my spirits and warms my heart. Loved this post.
