Here's something I never thought I'd say: I have pink on the brain. For those that know me, I'm not a girly-girl. I'm like a good frill, but it has to be subtle and balanced with something completely unfrilly. I wear pink occasionally, but usually with black, and it's no where in my house. So, when Sarah, from Pewter and Sage, announced her latest Mood Board Monday Challenge I decided to make it a true challenge.
I chose this artwork to base a room around, and decided that I want to pull in the pink and make the room a little feminine, but with an edge. I went this route for two reasons: as I mentioned above, pink it very out of my comfort zone and this artwork is also a little out of my comfort zone. Such bold colors! So modern! What can I say. I love a good challenge :).
But now I'm a little stuck. This is hard friends! So, I'm looking for inspirations of rooms that are decidedly feminine, but not girly-girl sugary-sweet Barbie rooms.
I LOVE all these rooms. What all these rooms have in common is that pink is used an accent. A strong accent in some cases, but it's a wall color, or a chair color, or a pillow color. It's not all three. I actually think this is a good rule of thumb for all strong accent colors!
What do you guys think of pink? Do you decorate with it? And, make sure to check back Monday to see how my room turned out. If you'd like to design your own room, check out Sarah's challenge here.
