A Passion For Pink.

Exotic Console from {kay*}.

I can't help myself, I like pink. Not tons of it, mind you, but some happy splashes here and there really add a lot of warmth to a room. I think it also lends a certain cosmopolitan, or ethnic flair to a room. Moroccan, Latin or French decor very often incorporate a bit of pink in their color schemes. I went on a hunt for some blushing inspiration, so here's a look at pink.

Pretty paper lanterns brighten up a simply lovely room from design.Zö.

Dining al fresco from MissKittyKat;
and pink wallpaper brighten up ATLITW's cute kitchen.

Pinklovesbrown's pretty subtle pinks;
and pretty pink sheets from sweetjessie.

One of my former living room incarnations;
and pretty vintage china from nbklx17 / Sandy.

Square one studio's pretty pink powder room;
and lush bella's sweet corner table.

Miss Pompon's patchwork pillows;
and ken mccown's retro cool pendant lamps.

Hippyxic's cute stools and charming dining toom cushions.

Pink is fun. In small doses. And don't be scared - pair it with red!

(But it's still not as nice as orange...)

What's that Diana Vreeland quote: "Pink - it's the navy blue of India" - I love it too and I love these images. Very inspiring as always.

I've had a nasty pink addiction since girlhood. They say it's girly and shallow and I agree. I just can't help myself.

Am de-lurking here after years of shameful lurking to thank you for including my Pepto-Bismol pink bathroom in this post. There has been much debate in my small-town community of friends about how fast I should change that color out of my first new home.

Your list of wonderful pink things (here I want to give a shout out to XTC for their provocative song by the same name) lends ammunition to the argument that I should keep the pink bathroom and undertake more pressing renovations.
