I haven’t ever been a huge fan of pink. In general, it’s always been a bit too girlie for me. BUT lately, I must admit that I’ve been loving the muted pink tones I’ve been seeing in minimal, modern interiors. So today’s interior obsession is dedicated to that once girlie hue that is suddenly cool…
Okay, so in fairness, that last shot isn’t really an ‘interior’, but they should would look good in a living room or dining room somewhere. So they made the cut.
What do you think of this design trend? Yay or nay?
Pink, meet neutral. Neutral, meet pink.
Here are a handful of things I’m loving today…
P.S. Kelly from Studio DIY put together a really cool series to celebrate Halloween called Bloggers in Costume and she asked me to participate. You can see me in my costume and a little story about my childhood right here.

This week’s Interior Obsessions with FormFire Glassworks takes us away from the dining table into the realm of color once again. Inspired by Pantone’s announcement for their Color of the Year for 2011, Honeysuckle (18-2120,) I decided to peruse the world of interiors for spaces where pink and its sister color coral, were used in a modern and fresh way. In all honesty, that was a harder task than it would seem, as the majority of interiors employing this vibrant color are frightening girls’ rooms which tend to employ so much of the color that one feels trapped inside a bubblegum bubble. Although pink is often a great accent color in its many forms from the lightest blush to the brightest fuschia, it is rarely shown as a major force in space design because of its tendency to take over completely.
Used in a very graphic way, pink can be a force to be reckoned with, and it is best used set against a neutral like white, black or brown to really set it off to good effect. Instead of painting the entirety of a room and adding further touches of the color, try limiting your pink to a single surface, such as a wall or floor. Or bring in rosy furniture to brighten up a minimal background. Start simply, and ramp the intensity up slowly – although pink can really liven up a space, it can overwhelm just as easily. Hot pinks work great as a splash against icy aqua tones, and is a great mod touch when paired with a bright orange. I’d love to hear how you incorporate pink into your home decor!
