I change my mind a lot…about a lot of things. I like to think I’m mysterious and unpredictable, but my husband might be more likely to refer to my ever-changing opinions and rules as confusing or maybe even just confused (my words, not his…I enjoy making up things that I think he might be thinking). Anyway, this “mysteriousness” of mine happens a lot when it comes to color. I have no favorite color…or possibly I have a different favorite color every five minutes. Either way, I think all colors have a place and time (and possibly a pattern) that they could live in and make me very happy.
Rewind 6ish years: I was pregnant with my daughter, Tilly, and I was one of those moms that was a little anti-pink. Not extreme, like, “I’ll never let my little girl where any girly colors, ever,” but I thought I could limit the pinkness or maybe just have a little influence. Well, let me tell ya, the power of pink is strong in this world, and it doesn’t like to be messed with.
She picked out her own outfit for today, and this is what she chose.
Needless to say, I have embraced pink. I actually even like it…it’s very Spring-ish and flowery, and it can be the kind of ‘bright’ that sneaks into your brain and turns everything into happiness and love. I say all this to prepare you for what I did to the mirror.
It is crazy pink and so bright, it’s almost jarring. I consulted the experts (that would be my children) on colors that might be great in a little girl’s room and this is what they gave me. Pink and yellow. Well, at least it’s done, and possibly someone with similar taste in color as my color consultants (that would be my children again) will love it and purchase it for their very own.
Can you handle any more pink?
I promise I’ll throw some other colors in here tomorrow. Have a great Tuesday!
