(or, in other words, champagne gold and pale pink)
Recently, I began thinking about a colour palette for my home office (currently just a desk in my unfinished basement - but an upcoming reno will see it transform into a space I can call my own). As I was searching through images on Etsy (a favourite pastime, I must confess), I found this pretty art print and fell in love with this girly and glamorous, yet uniquely understated colour combination.
Yes, I am talking about pink and gold.
And, the more I looked, the more I was convinced that this dynamic duo had lots to offer the world.
Whether as pretty nail art,
Or as a delicious looking dessert.
I love the feminine qualities of this pairing, as well as their subtlety. Youthful and restful, they look adorable in a nursery,
or as the pleasing palette at a bridal or baby shower.
And then we enter the vast world of interior decorating and design. A place with limitless possibilities for colour combinations - and I love so many of them!!! But again, I keep coming back to this pairing.
|So in love with these toss cushions that I found on Pinterest!!!|
Is it the sophistication I am after? The femininity (after all, I am the only female in my house)? Or is it possible that, being a very practical person (and being married to an even more practical man), I like the idea of having a slightly indulgent, different-than-anything-I've-ever-had-before kind of room?
If you know me and have the answer the the above question, please feel free to fill me in!!! :)
Here are some other decor images featuring my latest fav combo:
|Do you know what is EXTRA fabulous about this pretty image? The pictured shelves|
are courtesy of an IKEA hack! Just amazing what can be done with a can of spray paint.
|I love the Art Deco vibe in this image - especially the geometric wallpaper.|
|Today must be the day for featuring IKEA hacks - this trestle desk has had |
gold leaf added to amp up the wow factor!
|OOH! Lovely display here of framed art prints (can't get enough), apothecary jars, and other assorted treasures.|
So, there's my favourite colour combination (of the moment!) - it really does change all the time. And, while I don't know that I'll commit to this palette for my home office, I may just try out the pretty manicure pictured above.
Have a great day everyone!
