Despite many posts that may imply otherwise, I am not a girly girl by nature. I’m a jeans and t-shirt girl. A watch-a-lot-of-espn girl. My favorite color is black. My least favorite color is purple. Pink might be a close second… but I have to admit that it has grown on me over the years. The more I see it done right – in interiors and fashion – the more I could picture myself almost, maybe incorporating it into my life. And if I do – it’s gonna look something like this…

You’ll not find any scalloped edges or baroque details in my pink world. Nope. I’ve gotta have some contrast to my saccharine sweetness, and that means geometric lines and modern aesthetics.  How do you do your pink?

    I love pink in any way, but for those who don’t, I think you’ve nailed it here with the harsher lines to add balance to the feminine hue. Great post!

    Pink is such a great color! I just got a pair of pink jeans today and a pretty beige scarf with a pink trim. So nice. Love the geometric edges in these!

    I adore pink, but can completely understand why someone would not- I do have a tool box and can wire a lamp but feel delightful in pink!

    Ooof, it’s weird the last few times I go to leave a comment on your blog after I hit submit comment I get an error message. Sometimes my comment is there, sometimes it’s not. Just an fyi for you.

    But back to my commenting…love that paper chandelier it is so cute! Would love to make one of these this summer for an outdoor dinner party. Those red rimmed glasses are really sweet too. Now I’m just waiting to see the dessert ideas you’ve cooked up! Can’t wait to see what yummy mexican dessert you have in store.
