Every now and then I find myself leaning green. Not green as in "eco-friendly" (though I do have a conscience about that stuff), but incorporating green into my home decor scheme.
Not that I actually HAVE a current, cohesive scheme. My apartment walls are painted partly pale pink. That project stalled months ago, and I keep telling myself that with the warmer weather I will get back to it ... I truly will!
The question is this: what will I DO with that pink to make sure it's crisp and feminine but not little-girl or candy-sweet?
The color is a sophisiticated pink, but with pink walls one has to be careful.
On the other hand, I once read where the editor of House Beautiful called it a "new neutral".
These rooms give me hope that I can weave in other colors and make this pink work for me. I'm especially keen on the rose/berry/lavender hues, all of which mesh well with green.
Just not TOO MUCH green.
Know what I mean?
