Rain, rain, go away...

Granted this isn't our typical fashion-devoted post, but as you know we're pretty big fans of the color pink around here- so when I spotted this months' House Beautiful issue (devoted to our favorite rosy hue), I just had to share. This chilly rain and dark gray sky has me feeling a wee bit color-deprived. These pretty-in-pink images are exactly what I needed to remind me that warm sun, bright cotton dresses, and fresh flowers are just around the corner. BRING ON THE SPRING!!!

"Whenever you see this color, you instantly equate it with passion for life. It's a timeless pink, believe it or not. The Venetians and Moroccans have used it for centuries!"
-Windsor Smith (House Beautiful)

"A pink with depth to it won't jump out at you. This has undertones of raspberry and rose, and it makes people look good, which gives everyone a good feeling."
Suzanne Kasler (House Beautiful)

You may notice a pattern in most of these rooms.
colors of Gold and shades of blue are used in many corners...

"Pink is the most flattering color of all, especially at night, with candlelight. Everyone looks glowing. It think of it as a neutral- it works with any decorating scheme."
Frank De Biasi (House Beautiful)
