Watermelon Pink

Both Anna Spiro and I share a crippling addiction to pink (she has just done a post).
I am just itching to paint a room in flamingo pink. I have the sample pot, now all I have to do is find a room!
What is new about pink is the way you mix it. I love it clashing with red, a la Yves St Laurent, or have it as a bold accent in an all-white or grey room. It looks modern with other pinks in bold pop art prints.


  1. Love, love this hot color! fabulous image catherine!

  2. Wow, I LOVE the pink! It's not Pep-to Bismal colored nor powder pink, but a strong, grown-up version of every girl's favorite color. I wonder with such a palette as this, what kind of window treatments I would use to make these rooms even more magnetic. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

  3. Pink makes people look better too - goes well with skin tones ( and maybe taking into account what you said about pink and red, even for red-faced old colonels!).

  4. I love the watermelon pink. I've been thinking of printing this colour and you have now convinced me that it looks right. x

  5. I just saw Anna's post and I am a pink addict as well. That top picture with the watermelon wall colour is gorgeous! I hope you do paint a room in it.....beautiful blog!

  6. Love a strong pink. Not so crazy on the pasty pastel variety. Only when put with the stronger colour, like in flowers. Me, fussy? No.
