Recent New York Fashion Week news included more than a few predictions that pink will be VERY chic come spring, largely based on Carolina Herrera’s collection of pretty-in-pink designs (right).
First let’s clear the air.
· Mauve carpet throughout—kitchen and baths included
· Mauve tile at the two entrances
· A brighter pink figured tile in the guest bath
· A paler-than-mauve-but-still-pink tile in the master bath
· Mauve cultured marble counters in all baths
· Pale pink toilets
· A pale pink bathtub
· Pink draperies in all rooms
· Pickled-oak bathroom cabinetry with a pink undertone
And honestly, it’s not so bad now. Turning down the volume made a huge difference, as well as turning up the adjacent hue where we were still stuck with mucky mauve.
I may even be ready to add some pink back into our design mix. Here are four sumptuous interiors I could live with year-round because of how they capture’s pink’s around-the-clock moods in just the right saturation and hue for fall.
1. Rosy midnights

2. Salmon-hued dawns

Another gray sofa sends this shabby-chic parlor off to a shimmering start. The geometrics in the throw pills add energy to the arrangement and provide a fun contrast to the fussy style of the settee. I like how a few of the books on the tray pick up the same pinky-dawn color in those pillows. And how ‘bout that teeny typewriter. I soooo want one! The backdrop for the wall photos is a recycle pallet, and the coffee table is a repurposed industrial cart. Learn more here.
3. Paris pink mornings

4. Berry-licious afternoons

That chair and ottoman are calling out to me and the stash of unread e-books in my tablet. Anything Jane Austenish will do as long as it comes with a cup of tea to carry me over afternoon’s drowsy-time hump. The fuzzy pink plaid throw repurposed as a dresser scarf and puddled onto the floor is a yummy touch. I also love the different greens in the dresser versus the lamp, both drawn from the wallpaper. If you’re not a wallpaper fan (me neither), transfer the print to the chair and accessorize from there.
