The song is simple but sweet. The whole thing feels like a Summer daydream.

Ahhh, pinks and purples and lilacs and mauves ...
I have decided to take a bit of a leap and definitely go with very light pink walls for my apartment (with the possible exception of the kitchen).
Benjamin Moore 1268 Cotton Candy
I'm not crazy about the name, because I don't think it suits, but I do love the color. It's closest to what I imagined the walls looking like, based on my hours (and hours) of searching the web for photos of pink-walled rooms.
Not TOO pink, but pink enough.
I was going to go with Behr's Paris White, but in the end it really doesn't take a brave leap into pink, and there might even be a very pale peach cast to it. Peach is one of the only pastels I genuinely dislike in large doses. Because Behr is less expensive, however, I might take my BM chip to Home Depot and get a darn close match.
Yes, back to the swatches ... but I WILL get that pink I dream of!

British actress Rachel Weisz was the cover girl on the Spring, 2008 edition of Vogue Living (US).
That dream of a dress is a Vera Wang.
The fantasy rooms were inspired by the lives of 19th century Parisian courtesans.
Ms. Weisz wanted a bouduoir with a salon feel.
I think she got what she wished for!
