La Vie en Rose

Rosey swatchesSo I’m attracted to pink in home design lately. I mean, I know I always like pink (as evidenced here and here), but I’ve been seeing this pretty, rosy, mauve-y shade of pink around. When it’s mixed with chic neutrals, like a mushroom grey and a chocolate brown, it feels sophisticated and glam, not girly at all. Add in sumptuous materials, like velvet and leather, and it feels totally grown-up. Man, I feel like a woman. (-Moe)
