{colour inspiration: glimpses of pink}

. . . one of those weeks with a half a million unfinished projects, back-to-back appointments and invitations every evening -- it's beginning to feel like the holidays {which i adore} . . . slowing things down a little with perfectly pale and pretty glimpses of pink . . .

{p.s.} thanks for the great blog recommendations so far!

I wonder where that wallpaper on the ceiling in the photo from Lonny is from? Those subtle designs add so much whimsy to a room.

Lovely and subtle. I am into apples this week and there is one called 'The Pink Lady' from Western Australia. It's gorgeous and delicious... just like your post.

That shelf in the first picture is brilliant. I wonder if it is intended to be a shelf, or actually an object with some other purpose?

simply stunning, I love it when white in a room doesnt have that clinical feel as it often can have with modern decor

Love the touch of Pink. But, photo 3, white squares painted on the brown wodden floor! I thought they were rugs and thought to myself 'what if she trips on them, falls, and breaks a tooth?'.. so I looked closer at the madness and its paint! great idea!... now where is that brush..
Thanks for sharing :)

What is it about pale pink that makes me love it so much?! I wish we had more of it around the house. These photos are great though - tells me a little splash of pink goes a long way.

Michaela – does sound delicious! + thank you :)

Lauren – not certain -- could definitely be used for other things, such as hanging necklaces, but especially lovely as a bookshelf

Vittoria – thank you!
