I grew up in a two story pink house with a terracotta roof. A pale pink, chosen by my mother, who said she always wanted to live in pink. That spoiled me for life and I still swivel my head sharply when I drive past a pink house. Sadly they are not as common as they used to be. Most houses (like cars really) these days seem to be beige, grey, beigey green or greeny brown. Or white.
After mentioning here how much I love pink and green, this divine little card landed on my desk this week, from fantastic photographer based in Vancouver, Janis Nicolay. The exact same colour as my childhood home. Now that is synchronicity is it not? Thank you lovely lady. Please go to Pinecone Camp to see her fab photography and great recipes. (And please forgive the not very good IPhone photo of the card).
This room makes me want to paint my red dining room pink. Maybe it is just that spring is finally in the air and for the first time yesterday since about April it seems, I felt the sunshine on my shoulder and it made me happy.
Now, to two Aussie bloggers who have done good. Kellie Collis this week opened up her online store Ada & Darcy. It was a long time coming but it has some great stuff. And she is a girl after my own heart, who loves pink and green. Well done Kellie - your store is bright and happy and sparkles just like you. And once I get my act together my credit card will be paying you and your goods a visit. Here are my favourite pink and green items.
This week Anna Spiro was named as one of the worlds leading interior designers for 2010 in in the top 100 designers for 2010 in the Andrew Martin International Interior Designer of the year awards. And what would be the point of a pink and green post without Anna. A very talented lady. All of this whilst moving house and having a new baby in 2009-2010. You put us to shame girl.
Wishing you all a sunny weekend.
