Secondly, this post is heavily inspired by people I follow on Pinterest, most notable Kathy Sue at Good Life of Design and is a must-follow pinner (here) and The French Bed Company, who owns the bed images here – thank you for the inspiration!

When we were children, my sister and I had really beautiful bedrooms. Mine was bright pink with two twin beds and hers was bold yellow with a full-size bed – both large scale 70’s floral of course. I always remember being jealous because she had room for a floor mirror and I did not.  I also envied her double size bed rather than the twins I had. I assume she was jealous of my room as well, but I haven’t asked her.
One of the things that I was most jealous of, though, was the fact that I got very sick of my color, pink. It was probably partially because of the style – pink rug, wallpapered pink walls, and an explosion of pink floral fabrics on the bed, bedskirt, and windows. And my mother was so funny -When carpets or wallpaper needed replacing in our house, she replaced them with the exact same product. I remember we had this really bold wallpaper that was white with green and blue flowers all over it in the foyer for about 20 years. I came home from college one day and it looked a little bit different and I asked, “Mom, what happened to the wallpaper?  And she got excited and said “Hh! It’s new! Can’t you tell?1” Well yes, it was new, but it was the exact same pattern so it really just looked cleaner. 
Anyway, all of that backstory was prologue to why I have never really loved pink in my adult life, at least for more than an accent color. I just got so darn sick of it.  But these recent images have completely 100% changed my mind and I’m back in love with pale, blushing pink:
