sigh...pink walls

There was a time when we were really seriously considering painting our bedroom bright pink. After we moved, I fell in love with grey bedrooms but sometimes I'll come across a picture and my yearning for pink walls is totally reignited. This one below did it for me yesterday. I especially love the look of pink and red together (a color combination I really to use when dressing).
There is just something so happy and warm about pink. For some reason, I feel it is an inevitably retro color. And I love how it can either be super feminine or masculine depending on its saturation. When you get super saturated pinks (dare I say, "hot") as opposed to the more baby pinks above, it becomes almost so over the top that it stops being overly girly and even...masculine (definitely helped by a huge stag in the room below).

ps. for those whose living with pink haters, Cassandra feels your pain.
pps. no pink walls, but I love the use of pink here.


  1. i'm going to state it here in public again i like the pink wall idea...

  2. Blair is more in touch with his feminine side than I. Though, I do like some of the pink accents on those other pages. The pink chairs are especially appealing to me on Cassandra's site. However, I can honestly say I'd prefer them in another color.

  3. You just have to love Mexico to want to move forward with some of these colors, hence Matrioshka and I just want to make a little hacienda...
