Pink and Green, Not Just Colors but a Mindset

I love pink and green, hands down my favorite combination. It's really the pink that does it. It shold come as no surprise that I also love Lilly Pulitzer. I've been pondering the effect this bright color has on this gray SF day. (I hear it's pouring outside but my office is on the interior of the building so I can't confirm this)

There is something about bright pink, it warms and brightens. And I mean everything from a raincoat to blush. In fact today I managed to wear by bright pink raincoat and a vintage pink and green Vera scarf. It makes my plae gray cardi and grey pinstripe pants not feel quite so dull. Really it just makes me feel happy, which I think is the whole point of a color.

Even inside, there is something about pink. I adore the images above and am planning to come up with a way to incorporate this. Hubby has always resisted the incorporation of pink. But this looks bright and cheery and not to in your face. What do you think?


  1. I hope that you can get your pops of pink.

  2. I like to sneak pink into our home decor. With two daughters, it isn't hard! :) Keep us updated on how you decide to incorporate pink into your home.

    By the way, I tagged you for an award on my blog Tuesday. I'm sorry for not letting you know until now. Happy Thursday!
