Pretty in Pink

Hi everyone,

For this post, I wanted to pull from one of my favourite sources of inspiration - nature. Right now, my peonies are in full bloom and they are, once again, spectacular! The are, quite truly, my favourite spring perennial. To me, they are classy, timeless, and sophisticated, all at the same time. They also look amazing as a cut flower in any variety of vessel. So, in order to pay homage to my favourite spring bloom, I'd like to share some ways to add small hits of this great colour, "peony pink" in your next home d├ęcor project.

What a gorgeous, elegant, and romantic grouping of peonies in this hand-tied bridal bouquet. 

Small hits of peony pink are all that is needed in this transitional space to add a touch of playfulness to an otherwise formal room. 

Here, a stunning vase of cut peonies adds instant colour and interest to this contemporary space. 

I have always been a fan of black, white, and pink. What a combo! 

Not all peonies are pale pink in colour. In fact, they range in beautiful hues from almost white, to candy floss pink, to almost fuchsia. I love the symmetry in this room, as well as the blue and grey accents. 

Check out these updated dining chairs - leather upholstery with a nailhead detail. Here, the bright pops of pink work against a neutral backdrop. 

Oh! I love this room! An upholstered headboard against pink geometric wallpaper contrasts beautifully with the botanical pressings and milk glass lamp. 

And finally, here are some "peony pink" items that I recently sourced - how sweet would these pieces look in a little girl's room? Too sweet. 

If you ever find yourself stuck for inspiration, take a look outside. Nature offers limitless possibilities, colour palettes, and sources of inspiration. Good night!
