In the 1957 movie, Funny Face, there’s a great musical number called Think Pink. The character, played by the brilliant Kay Thompson, is supposedly based on Diana Vreeland, and proclaims that pink is the new colour of the season.
Suddenly, for some reason, I’ve become enchanted with the palest shade of pink. It may have been inspired by a beautiful Valentine’s bouquet with a pale pink David Austen rose in the middle of it, or that it is such a flattering shade for most people. My bedroom is painted in Martha Stewart’s Magnolia, which is no longer made. It’s got red, a drop of yellow and a drop of black, so it avoids being a sickly bubblegum shade.
When I saw this image, I thought it would be fun to go back and buy the huge linen tablecloth and make it into a sheet and then dye it the palest of pinks. Hopefully, it will be drastically reduced when I go back!
What’s your thought on pale pink? Yea or nay?
