Pink














As Diana Vreeland once said - "I adore pink. It's the navy blue of India."

I am in agreement. It's a staple. I never tire of it. I can't live without it.

hi anna,

i have to tell you that i've never been a big fan of pink until i met you and your blog. your presentation of pink is something from another world. it's other-worldly! you have opened my eyes to color combos i've never liked, but now do. good job.

Oh, I used to have a mini moke! We bought it in Australia, shipped it to England and I used to drive it around London with the children strapped in the back with rugs and hot-water bottles! I painted it deep lipstick red...

Gifts of Serendipity said...

How about that Mini-Moke!
Living by the beach I think that I should probably trade in the 'sensible' VW Golf and zip around in a little hot pink number like this!

Faux Fuchsia said...

I love pink too. It's the International Colour of Comfort and Soothingness. Plus it's intensely flattery as one's face collapses from age and wrinkles. Loving this rain Anna, how is your garden?

I'm tickled pink over all these images. And that Diane Vreeland quote - well, that might just belong on my sidebar! Fabulous fun!

cari jo said...

I heart pink! You inspired me to paint my bedroom walls a pale blush pink. It is cozy and gorgeous. It somehow still remains neutral, despite it's feminine quality.

Thanks for your beautiful blog!

I just found you through the Janet Hill story on Etsy. She mentioned you and I just had to come see for myself. I'm so glad I did. I must say that you are my new hero of design blogs. I love pink in the most immense way possible and can't wait to read more of your blog!
