Maybe it’s because it was just Valentine’s Day or because I’m currently decorating for the new baby’s nursery (which is so fun but so expensive…why are baby things so pricey?) but I’ve had all things pink on my mind and on my Pinterest board for the last little while. I guess it also has to do with the fact that we’re coming into Spring soon and a lot of the shops are showing pretty blush colored dresses and tops, though I’ve also been seeing a lot of pink in interiors lately and I’m really liking it.
Having a little something pink in your decor feels so unexpected but can look very sophisticated and not overwhelmingly feminine when done in the right way. I swear! The key is to keep the rest of the look relatively understated or neutral, or to throw in some darker colors to help ground the look. A good way to incorporate a little pink into your life while keeping things from being too sweet is through art – I really love this painting and think it would look so cool in just about any room. The pink things that started my obsession are these chairs in this pink fabric, which I had planned to order for our old house but ended up cancelling since they were a little big for the space (plus they were backordered for months which is frustrating). I’m determined to have them in my life at some point when we have more space, but for now I’ll focus my pink obsession on the nursery.
There’s also a way to wear pink without look too saccharine and sweet, as shown by a few of the incredibly chic girls in the images below. The key is to either keep the pink pieces tailored or the rest of the outfit not too perfect looking (messy hair, a half tucked shirt, etc). There are some women who can really pull off the perfectly polished, super girly pink look (Julia from Gal Meets Glam comes to mind) but I find that I look like I’m trying too hard to look young and like I need to mess up my hair or grab an edgy accessory whenever I try on something too girly.
