I Think We Need Some Pink

Long ago and far away, one of my best friends had a kitchen with pink touches throughout. I just loved it! Pink was not the in color at the time but that was of no worry because this was a happy gathering spot for kids and families.  

Now that we are working on our new house I've noticed a lot of pink in the world. Have you noticed? I like it a lot!! Fortunately, the manly man that I'm married to is very sweet to let me do the decorating so I think a little pink might be working its way into our home.

Let's see...

How about some pretty pink art on an open shelf in the kitchen?  I love everything at A Thing Created on Etsy.  Peonies in a Jar is calling my name.
A rug with a little pink would be the cat's meow! We tried to order this one awhile back and the size we needed wasn't available. We should try again. Right?


Poofing a pink pillow or two would definitely bring a few smiles.

Celeste at Southern DayDreams uses pink quite often for the perfect cottage touches. Feeling blessed?



Out in the garden, pink hydrangeas would be amazing and they would make great bouquets inside.


This blogger has the cutest laundry room ever with pink in the mix. Look at that wallpaper. Love!!

Did you see Carol's pink office reveal? It's so pretty and filled with amazing storage/organization ideas.

Have you been admiring pops of pink lately? :)

Love all your ideas! I think every girl needs a touch of pink in her life.

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Oh I love the idea of adding some pink. My first house has a pink kitchen with pink appliances. It was wonderful.

Andrea Nine said...

You know I adore lil touches of pink and plan on incorporating some in areas of the new house! Adore the wall paper in that laundry room!

It's all very soft and pretty! I especially like that pillow!

I visited Carol's pink office...WOW! It's fabulous! I got a good idea for storing my rolls of paper too but couldn't find a way to comment! Thanks for the link!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I think touches of pink would be lovely! I'm a neutral girl, but I love a splash of color every now and then. :)

Pink is one of my favorite colors! I can't believe I have that same rug saved in my Pinterest files.

Kim said...

I have always loved a little bit of pink. When the girls were small their rooms were pink, so I was able to decorate with it. Now that's gone and there's a bit of it in my room and I was thinking of adding more this summer!

Botanic Bleu said...

Stacey,
Count me among those thinking the shades of pink you featured would go very well with your kitchen island's color. My sister's favorite color is peach, and the buffalo checked pillow is calling her name, too. Yes, try to get the rug again. What fun you are having picking new things for your house.

Stacey, I always love a little pink! My master bedroom years ago was pink and blue chintz and my sweet hubby never complained! I am having a Gardens Galore link party Monday, June 12 opening at 8 am central time. I would love for you to link your garden and pond from your last house! Hope you will join me!

I love pink! I had the pleasure of touring a 1905 home recently with a pink bathroom, and it was gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Pink has always been my favorite. I'm thrilled it's more available now. Time to stock up! ;)

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Stacey, well you know I love pink and have been designing around it for years. Love the accent you share here and the pillow is calling my name. I love adding pops of pink in my home too. Thank you for the mention and pic. You are so sweet to include me in your post.
Can't wait to see your newly decorated home. xo

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Pops of pink will be beautiful, Stacey! I hope you find that pretty rug for your new home. It's so nice that you have a hubby that lets you de die on the decorating. My late Beloved was like that, too.

A Joyful Cottage said...

I love pink, Stacey, and have at least a little bit in every room in our cottage. I especially like it mixed with green in light shades. Love that laundry room you linked to. Wow! Have fun decorating your new home. Great rug you picked out. Yes, you should try to find it again in the size you need! Hugs, Nancy

I think pink first showed up again on blog themes, then worked into the decor. Pink has always been my favorite colour. If I was single my home would be pink, brown, and white. I am sneaking little bits of it into the house, but Mr Hubs would be very resistent. lol

Love the cushion, its beautiful

Jeanie said...

I hope my new hydrangeas turn that color. Well, at this point, I hope that the bush doesn't die!

All lovely and so springy!

Rebecca Nelson said...

Gosh...Edmond misses you girl! :) Love all the pink...you know I do. Doesn't sell too great here in Oklahoma...not for me anyway. But I will always LOVE IT. Hope this finds you happy and well and enjoying the summer. I posted pictures of my Serendipity Booth a couple posts back. In the front by the window.

Big Hugs~<3

Touches of pink are always lovely. Pink is such a pretty color. It makes us happy.

jenna meon said...

YES!! Pink makes everything better!!

carol@The Red Painted Cottage said...

I love pink, but the only place I really have a touch of it is in my craft/art studio. Love everything you shared!

Jann Olson said...

Yup, love a bit of pink! I get my pink fix in my living room. I am wanting a new rug and hoping to paint the wood floor white this summer. That rug is fabulous! Wonder if it would be too much with my floral couch. :) Blush pink is one of the 'hot' colors for 2017.
hugs,
Jann

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

I totally agree! I can sure see some pink in that pretty house of yours!
Happy Friday,
Jemma

I do love Pink but haven't put any in my d├ęcor yet. I have been buying pink clothes for myself though! Those pink hydrangeas are so gorgeous! I have never seen them that color. Looking forward to seeing how you incorporate pink in your new home. I love that rug.

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

I've been thinking about adding a little pink here and there and that buffalo checked pink pillow is calling my name!

I ordered our table from Wayfair and it is very heavy. If it's the same one, then you will love it!

hugs,
Sissie

I loved the pink things you shared especially the rug. I was just lamenting last week the lighting in my kitchen. They are Tiffany lights and have pink butterflies in them. I had spent a month looking at lights thinking I might finally change them. I am not trendy by any stretch, but I haven't been a fan of them ever. I just never have been able to make a change. The rug could be a possibility for me. You have got my wheels spinning girl!!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Dear Stacey, It is so good to be back visiting you again! And, like always, I found so much good info here and doses of beauty. I smiled at the coffee post, knowing I could and would have shared the same things:). I am grateful for the book list and especially eager to read the one highlighted. The pink post was so pretty! Your blog continues to bless me, even when I was away for so long. Thank you! And, thank you also for your kind blog comment to me a while ago. It sure was an encouragement to me!

Art @ Home said...

Well you know how much I love pink, and I'm happy to be in style (finally, HA!)

I love love love these pink lovelies on your post, and methinks your home needs them ALL!!!
