ROOM OF THE DAY

I have always been partial to various shades of pink. My office is painted a light shade of pink, part of my hair is currently dyed bright magenta, and a favorite pair of shoes purchased to match a party dress (even though worn only once and no longer fit me) are a blush-colored satin. Pink is having a moment right now and it’s finally getting the grown up recognition it deserves. It’s no longer reserved for little girls with Barbie dream homes (yes, I was one of those…matching pink convertible Corvette and all…).

The color was replicated from a small piece of eighteenth-century ribbon. Isn’t it interesting how inspiration can come from just about anything? I love hearing the story behind the design. It makes for a more meaningful space and makes for great conversation. So for today…think pink! room of the day in pink via reviving charm

    I’m actually giving serious consideration to using rose in one of the bedrooms in my current fixer-upper. When I bought the cottage there were a number of rose colored decor items that I saved and may repurpose. Haven’t decided for sure yet. Love it!

      Rose would be a wonderful complement to the green and ivory you are using in the cottage. Plus, I love the idea of incorporating some of the found items that came along with the purchase of the home. It adds to the history, character, and charm of the home. I am confident that it will turn out beautifully. I can’t wait to see your completed project.
