Think Pink! Friday Edition!


I've had a lot of energy the past few days and it's been hard to sit on the computer. I feel the need to be busy with a project or something. When I get that itch, and I'm not sure what to do, I head to the closet. It's always very calming to declutter and purge and take stock.  I noticed I have added a lot of pink to the closet in the past year, in shoes and in clothing. Pink makes me happy and well why not have it in the house as well? 



Pink seems unconventional outside of a girl's room, but it's gaining wider acceptance throughout the home as it's cozy, happy and flattering. It also is a terrific foil to so many other colors such as golds, grays and tans which it punches up. In combination with peach, red and other warm tones it's got pizazz.


I've collected some of these great pink images for a while and have been thinking of adding pink in some part of the home. Maybe my bedroom with gold, (if the Max can stand it,) or possibly even outdoors in pillows and umbrellas. Here's some pink to think on...



I love the pink in these kitchens!

One King's Lane









Milo Baughman Chairs 


Lee Radziwell at home.



Gloria Vanderbilt at home in the 1970's.


In that 70's mode, could these pink Kork-Ease not be cuter? I really am thinking of these for summer with dresses and how cute with a jean skirt and floaty floral top??


Diana in one of my favorite photos of her. Isn't this gorgeous?

Pink Le Creuset, apparently hard to come by in the U.S. I found this 5 Qt version on Amazon. It's not cheap, but does qualify for Prime Shipping which is surprising given it's probably 200 lbs!!



Did you know you can even order cakes from Williams-Sonoma? This Pink Rose Chocolate Layer Cake is so pretty!! Wouldn't this be fun for a special girl's birthday or even a girlfriend's party? Love!

Happy Friday!!

Kim

  3. Gorgeous, as I said on one of your recent posts I have never liked pink but I am inexorable drawn to at the moment. That bedroom would be the perfect guest room.

  8. I love your images, Kim! Something about beautiful colors and images just makes us happy. I'm loving the pink and gold combinations. I painted my bedroom that very shade of pale pink, in the room with the chandelier, when I lived in LA. It was so fresh and yet subtle. Of course the modern vintage mix photo is perfect in my eyes. Who doesn't love a bougainvillea?? Lovely, lovely post girlfriend!
    Have a good week!

  9. Love me a twinkle of pink - fresh and fun. When we were in London we aimed for a Barbie pink for our kitchen and got a Morroccan pink - others didn't like it - but I love it.

  10. How did I miss this gorgeous post?? Pink is on my hit parade this year for the first time in a long time!
    I've been noticing the tiny bits around my house and coveting some clothes in it.
    Those shoes look like I might be able to wear them!!! I'm ordering them today!
    Have a great week Kim!

  11. Okay that cake from Williams Sonoma is SOOO cute. I wonder if someone could re-create it if they knew how to make the little icing flowers. :) I can definitely relate to how de-cluttering a room or closet can really help and be so relaxing in a strange way. Loving all the pink images and if I had 2 daughters I'd love their room to look like the one with the framed elephant picture. :)
