Make Me Blush

I've decided that when/if we buy a house, I would like to have a pink room. But not just any ol' bubble gum pink will do. I want a soft blush pink, one that can take on different tones in different lighting. I don't want it to be over-the-top girly so to make it more like a subtle backdrop it will have to be mixed with a few harder pieces. Dan and I have already worked it out: he gets full reign in the garage and (part of) our future basement and I will get full control of either a guest bedroom or an office. Fair enough, no?

A page I ripped out of the most recent Better Homes & Gardens. Depending on how your monitor shows, I think the color on the bottom left is gorgeous- it's called Odessa from Ace Hardware.

 So in order to keep it as guy-friendly as possible, here's what I'm envisioning:



Perfect mix of soft and hard

LOVE this






I think Nicole got it spot-on with Benjamin Moore's Wild Aster.


And while we're on the topic of future offices, what do you think about having your desk away from a wall? I really like the look of it but my big concern is that our desktop computer could get knocked over. Do any of you have your computer desks away from a wall? Or do you all lounge on your sofas with your laptops?

A perfect example from another pink room.

So what do you think of pink?
