October is the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a group of bloggers, organized by the incredible Patricia, Mrs. Blandings, are posting in PINK!
Coincidentally, pink happens to be one of the colours I love the most. It’s cheery in its brightest forms like this vibrant hot pink Prada that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to an awards show several months ago.But it can be very sophisticated like the pale pink that Gwyneth wore in this ill-fitting Ralph Lauren gown. In decorating, pink can really warm up a room and give it a beautiful glow. Check out the pink hounds-tooth curtains. This is from an old Oprah magazine.Pink and black can have a retro look, mimicking the look of mid-century children’s books, like Eloise. But it’s very easy to go overboard, like this! Or like an all Barbie-pink, shabby-chic, faux-Paris-theme house I recently heard about.
Think pink, but keep it sophisticated.
