When I was a little girl, I lived down the road from a big pink house with a bright purple door, and forest green trim. While my mom thought it was abysmal, it thrilled me to no end and I was completely convinced that it would become my future home. Though my taste has, thankfully,  improved since then, the little girl within me will never tire of an ode to pink when it comes to decor. This particular home does a fantastic job of appeasing that small child, all while satisfying the adult I’ve since become. The pink fridge is the stuff that dreams are made of while the rustic and vintage touches throughout help balance what could quickly become a case of pink overload.

    I love a touch of pink, too. I had a bubblegum-coloured bedroom growing up (it was like that when we moved in; my parents would never have indulged me with that shade!) and I loved it. As an adult I still think that a soft, barely-there blush is a really elegant (and flattering!) alternative to white.

      so jealous! I always wanted a bubblegum pink room. I did have a soft lavender one but never pink.

      I totally agree. My future office is going to be a barely there blush – that’s been established

    Love the lighting in the kitchen and the hallway with the white frames. Love the wood rustic touches as well.

    I’m not really a pink person, but I love all the blush touches here. Such a pretty palate!

    what a gorgeous home, I love the pink tones, although I’m almost positive my husband would not approve of this decorating style…I can always dream though

    Oh, this space is so sweet and lovely. That fridge!! I remember this house from Design Sponge, and loving it too. I think that the draping around the bed is to die for. xo

    I love these touches of pink. I wish the bf would let me incorporate it more! I guess I’ll just have to sneak it in. These interiors are definitely inspiring.

    What a fun bachelorette pad this would be. I had a VERY pink room growing up and actually my room here at St. Andrews is an extension of that. More the reason to hang out to girly pinks and childhood dreams, right?
