Going PINK

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

In a day and age where everyone is going "green", I am going....you guessed it, PINK! I recently stumbled upon a picture of a pinkalicious living room and fell in love. People think pink for a baby's room, a little girls room, or maybe even a powder room, but few people can visualize pink in a sophisticated enough way to use it in a living room.

This is what I mean by sophisticated pink.

It's about bringing the little girl out of the now very grown up girl. It's bubble gum and lipstick for the first time. It's about smiling because you can't believe that your dreams have just come true... being surrounded in a world of pink.

It Say's "tickle me" **"laugh with me" **"smile at me" **"kiss me"

And yes, some may say... "my hubby would NEVER let me paint my living room pink"...to that I say: It does not make your husband unloving because he doesn't let you paint the living room whatever color you please, it only shows that in his eyes, you are his best friend...not his decorator. He values your companionship more than your homemaking. Either of which should flatter you.

When/If he does see you as his "homemaker" (regardless of your work title), he will see this pink escapade as more of a feminine touch to his home and remind him of why he got married in the first place, to have that woman's touch in his world. He will welcome your mark in his life.

I challenge you to find that inner little girl. If a dramatic pink makeover is not in your budget or in your heart, try taking something like a coffee table, bookcase, or anything that you use a staple piece in your home, and give it a new coat of paint I'm thinking....

PINK .....
