A passion for pink

Back in May, Traditional Home did a little blurb about pink. They mentioned some great fabrics and wallcovering, along with some furniture and paint colors! We have, of course, shared their findings with you since you can purchase any of these things from our showroom.
Some people see the color pink and automatically think of little girls; ribbons and bows. Some of us "adults" still enjoy the color pink because it is playful and sweet.  There are so many ways to incorporate pink into your home in a mature and sophisticated way.
Think about maybe adding a touch of pink to your dining room to make the space feel a little more fun and relaxing. However, be cautious at the amount of pink you are using, you don't want to overwhelm the guests or of course yourself.
 
Some "Don't do" tips:
Watch what colors your are pairing pink with.
You don't want to put pink with blues or purples, it could give off a busy "circus" feeling.
 
 
First the paint colors selected were great. We have had a few furniture pieces done in a high gloss lacquer finish in our paint shop using Fine Paints of Europe. F.P.E. color matched the 'Cactus Flower' finish on a dresser. (Yes, the dresser went in a little girls room)   I wish I had a picture to show you!! It came out stunning. The lacquered finish makes such a difference and adds such class to any piece.
Here are some of the other colors T.H. mentioned.
 
There are so many amazing pink fabrics from all over. Here are some T.H. picked out. We have selected a few more for you as well. Fabrics are another great way to add a little pop of pink into a space. For example, the gray craze that is so popular right now. Imagine a beautiful gray wall with some light pink drapes, pink rug and some pink accents! Ahh-mazing.
love the pink and gray
