Fifty Shades of Pink

Fifty Shades of Pink

Pink has never been my colour. I think I’ve always associated the colour with being “girly” and so have largely avoided it. But, I’ve been wrong, Oh, so very wrong. And now I’m letting pink into my life. The image above, sort of sums up why. From the palest baby pink through to almost plum, pink is pretty perfect. A colour for every mood.

I’ve been experiementing with pops of pink in the house. An old carpentry table, rescued from a family garage, and covered in old paint splodges and oil stains and wood cuts, took on a whole new lease of life when it was sprayed hot pink and stood defiantly at the top of the stairs…

And this got me thinking, about larger spaces and use of colour. Our stone house isn’t a style which lends itself to crazy colour, I don’t think. We’ve used quite bold colours, but they fit in with their surroundings. However, our thoughts are turning to another property. Hopefully, the next renovation project – and this one is potentially a blank canvas. So, inspiration is being sought and pink is featuring quite heavily. PInk concrete, especially…
