Dear readers, as you know any color obsession must start with pink. So it's no surprise that as I begin a new path of Spring color obsession, pink is on my mind. But not any pink, a soft pink. Not a pastel pink, but a more mature soft pink. You know the kind, the kind that goes with soft brown, sage, violet, gray, even yellow. Pink is not just a girly color, it can be done in a modern, edgy way. The following image epitomizes the pink that is currently on my mind. Love it.
Lola is a dreamy photographer. Her flickr set is here, and her blog is here. I love her photography so much that I am adding her link to my photo blog.
Jill Simonsen's work is so wonderful, I will be doing a post devoted exclusively to her. For now, her use of pink fits in nicely with this mood. I love how she has taken a familiar fixture - telephone wires and juxtaposed them with trees and birds and done it in a soft way. Feminine, but edgy too. I would love to have some of her works in my home. Isn't it funny how creativity works sometimes? I'd been doing city shots tinted with pink around the time I discovered Jill's work (for my pink city works, click here). But mine are photos. Hers are paintings that look like photos. Amazing.
Oh how I love this work and wish it were mine! I'd love to hang this in my bedroom. I apologize for not knowing the source of this image. If you know this artist, please contact me.
This beautiful bedroom demonstrates a very classy use of pink. It's soft, and combined with the soft taupe walls and yellow framed mirror is divine. Shelby's Itty Bitty Abode via Apartment Therapy. Shelby is a contestant in this year's Small Cool contest, and my favorite entrant so far.
This picture is a bit more girly than I wanted for this particular mood, but I love it so. Let me count the ways. White floor, check. Pink walls, check. Mismatched chairs, check. Smeg fridge, double check! I dream of owning a Smeg one day. I'd like to see a bit more rustic of a table here, perhaps like this one, but I do love that table and its juxtaposition with the soft pink walls. Brigitte Home.
