La Vie en Rose


I'll admit that, notwithstanding a brief fling at the age of 14, I've never been a fan of pink. This has stayed with me to adulthood, and until recently I honestly would never have considered putting it on my walls. It has always seemed a bit too 'girly', the reserve of princess bedrooms or excessively twee decor.

Recently, though, I've been forced to reconsider. Pink seems to be enjoying a bit of a revival, in chalky colours rather than anything too sickly. Take a look at these examples to see what I mean.

Bonus points if you can combine dusty pink walls with copper or brass details. With so many brands pedalling metallic wares right now you're totally spoilt for choice, and the combo is sooo good.
