One Pink Wall

Great use of Pink as an Accent wall.

I love the white walls and gray white furniture and warm colour of the flooring. The neutral palette allows you to change the accent colour regularly for a new feel and pop!

Instead of pink, imagine instead: next month, the wall being turquoise and reflected in a collection of vibrantly coloured aqua/turquoise Bitossi vases. Or a yellow wall and reflected in some sunny and cheaply procured sailboats spray painted yellow.

Or a lime green wall reflected in a bowl of limes on the coffee table?

How else can you reinterpret that wall? Would you do it and just keep painting over?

You could also drastically change the reflectors/accents. Instead of that vivid pink floral arrangement, switch it out now and then with a vibrant pink lampshade, or an oversized pink vase… or a pink Royal Doulton figurine. Just the one burst of pink to reflect off that brilliant pink wall.

In a palette that restrained (and obviously devoid of children living or messy family members), I’d find it hard to maintain and live in… but easy to decorate!

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
