Pink Saturday

Pink is such a warm, dreamy, soft color. I have always loved pink, but never had a room painted in pink as an adult. As a child I had a pink bedroom, but remember it vaguely as I was very young. I do remember the green my Mom chose to paint over the pink. Most of us tend to think of pink for little girls rooms only, so when I saw this picture in January's issue of House Beautiful, I knew that all of my fantasies of an adult room decked out in Pink had come true.


Isn't this room just eye candy for the soul? To me it's pure pretty pinkness. I am in love. With a room. Go figure. It's not anywhere in my immediate future therefore I
, will just have to DREAM. In PINK.


A big shout out to our Hostess Beverly at How Sweet The Sound who created and puts together this wonderful Pink Saturday for us all to play around in. Please go visit her site and find other blogs that participate and find out what they love about pink!

Thanks so much for coming by!

Yes, I can't wait to fire up that new printer.

I love that picture from House Beautiful. My living room is actually that color combination. Black, pink and crystal. My pink is a barely pink color though.....

Enjoy your Pink Saturday!

Bless you.

Oh gee, I thought that was your house and I was gonna ask what would be a good time for me to come and spend some time with you! I think pink, if I was to get Freudian, reminds us of our mothers' wombs. At least that's my take on it and I'm stickin' to it!☺

As for the dog bed. Maybe she wants you to put that little bed on your little bed, hehehe!

Thank you for the Pink Saturday welcome. I really love that soft pink wall. It really is a nice neutral background and much nicer than builder beige.

Your House Beautiful fantasy room is lovely. I like the way the black grounds the pinkness. I had a pink bedroom as a girl, as well....and still love using touches of "my favorite color" today.

Best Wishes,

Funny you posted that picture...I just saw a pic of Martha Stewart's guest house...she painted every room in pink. Might be a bit much for my taste, but I suppose if you're Martha you can change it up in a weekend! LOL

The room from House Beautiful is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Very pretty rooms. I'm afraid I had trouble reading your post with my bad eyes, but enjoyed the rooms.

Jennifer said...

I so Love when my Favorite magazines do whole rooms in Pink! Martha Stewart did one,I think pre-jail time;) and it was amazing. It makes me want to do a whole Pink room too. I think all the men in the family might protest alittle too much!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, Sares.

This room is total eye candy. I could be in love with it, too.

Cottage Rose said...

Hello and Happy Pink Saturday.

You are so right, I am in love with that room too. It is such light and wispy Pink,, I don't have a pink room either, hubby would not like that... sigh.... thanks for sharing

Hi Sares! I wanted to drop by before I left for Austin.

I love a pink room. My parents had a pink living room for many many years. Mom was ahead of her time...lol! I would love a pink room too but I'll have to wait until we buy our house in September. Thanks for the inspirational picture!

Pony Girl said...

Sares, that room is really nice! It's a pink even a manly-man might love....well, maybe, hee hee! Remember the pink guest bedroom at mom and dad's last beach house? I chose the pink. It was almost too light. I hope you get your pink room someday!

Amy said...

Your mom once helped me paint my living room pink! We spent the whole weekend doing it. And then I painted my bedroom the same color! I was really into pink. my bathroom in the desert is half pink, the other half is a metalic taupe all with leopard carpet!!!

Susie Jefferson said...

That exact shade of pink with black is just sheer elegance! Of course the hard bit is finding the exact shade of pink...

Happy Pink Saturday!

TRES BELLE said...

I love the pink room. It looks so lovely. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog...I was in Dallas over the weekend and did not get to make the rounds...I did have pink houses to show from Houston though.

Happy Pink Saturday,
