{colour inspiration: late-summer pink}



. . . the last day of august and how it has arrived so quickly is a mystery, and while the early morning air has become a little cooler, the sun still shines warmly and whether it's ribbons or tulle, stripes on a chair or a soft cashmere sweater, whether in shades of monticello or azalea, somehow, the last days of summer always feels like pink . . .

{p.s.} today is also p's birthday and we're off to lose ourselves in beautiful things . . . à bientôt & hope your week is off to a perfect start xo

this is lovely! You are so right about pink -- I put a few soft pink roses in a jar last night and they make all the difference... lovely photos together, with such a beautiful write-up to follow.

Happy Birthday to "P" :)

Love it, love it, love it!!! I would have never thought to be so positive about pink, but right now I could even see myself redecorating my flat ;-)! You are very right about your late-August thoughts. I struggled with my September wallpaper quite a bit and finally decided to indulge ouselves in a bit of final summer pictures (http://bit.ly/aGuMU5).

Have a lovely day
