Pink Decor Accents & Photos of Our Former Home

I hope you will not be too disappointed about the lack of exceptional architectural genius and worldclass interior design today. Please forgive. Instead, we are firmly planted in real life with scenes from this blogger’s past digs.

Yesterday I shared older photos of our former French Country home, and today I’m wrapping up that tour with a few more shots you may recall from years ago. That home was twice the size of our current home so I was fortunate enough to have a dressing room that I accented with pale pink. You may recall I stenciled a wall with a Fortuny stencil (that DIY project only took a couple of hours) and Martha Stewart “Sharkey Grey” paint. Of course, the space called for fairy lights too!

Thinking about the old dressing room where my collection of ballet slippers lived of course put me in the mood for pink. In fact, I am still considering accenting my studio with pale pink. I just snagged a cute little vintage French settee so a Parisian vibe might be the direction for the space. I’ll keep you posted. In the mean time, if you need ideas for pretty blush pink paint colors, you are in luck! See this recent story with great ideas.

Let’s start with pretty in pink finds, mostly from One Kings Lane.

Pretty Pink Decor Finds to Fall For

I would love to hear your ideas for how you might incorporate these slipper chairs into a space. In my dreams, these would go in a great big walk-in closet or dressing area. I love their clean simple lines.

Here’s a way to inject a sophisticated touch of pale pink to a room without going in a little girls room direction.

Rachel Ashwell uses pink so well and so elegantly. I am always surprised to hear criticism in blogland of Rachel’s marketing choices. For example, the complaint that the look she is known for is tired and never changes. When you get it right, and it’s timeless, there’s no need to go reinventing or creating something experimental to come down the runway. I’m so glad Rachel’s look endures. I have also read gripes about her licensing with Target for lower priced Shabby Chic products. All I can say is, I have no complaints about the pieces offered at Target. And why should beautiful design (especially shabby chic…ahem!) be exclusive to the rich? This sham below is not bargain-priced, but it is fairly priced since it is great quality and will only get better with age.

I am considering this linen vanity stool for my own bath. What a pretty little perch.

Have you tried linens from Matteo? Designers swear by this maker of luxury linens.

The more I consider this wingback headboard with the pretty pink frond print, the more I love it.

I’m a fan of barrel chairs with proportions like this one and find them so sweet in a bedroom or den.

If the vanity stool moves in with me, this stripe may have to mosey over too.

Another pretty pink print that could inspire a whole room’s design.

A few more shots of our former home. The paint color throughout most of the home: BENJAMIN MOORE White Sand. The trim and doors were painted BENJAMIN MOORE Dove Wing.

Feminine Dressing Room

I designed these industrial carts for the space and they are still put to use in our current home…in a great big guest bedroom lacking a closet. We used salvaged wood planks for the bases.

The headboard (above) is fa Lexington one I bought decades ago – its coastal cottage style still appeals.

I need that swing installed again and can’t believe after three years in our fixer upper that we still haven’t gotten around to it!

Sometimes I would crowd the top of my vintage white piano (I have been playing it almost all of my life since it’s a family piece) with STUFF.

    Michelle, I remember majorly drooling over your closet wall, and the clothes hanger! I almost got the courage to try your stencil project, but backed out. I was | | this close.

      It’s still a classic pattern, and you should go for it! It took no time at all and makes such an impact. I may dust off that Fortuny stencil for my new studio! 🙂
