I love getting the mail when flyers like this arrive!  This is a dreamy collection of colors from Fine Paints of Europe.  They were inspired by Washington’s  historic home, yet have a soft fresh character for today.  I can’t wait to play with them on my next project.

  1. Pink walls!!!! My favorite color and who knew it could look fabulous as in the above picture!

    I have had this picture of this perfect pink chair that I would love to purchase but had no idea where it would fit in, but if I could do a room with pink walls, it would be wonderful!!!

    My question is, how do you get your husband to agree to do pink walls?

    1. Actually pink walls are less of a commitment than a pink chair. It is less expensive to repaint than to reupholster. If you really love pink (and it sounds like you do!), then surrounding yourself with it will give you the maximum style statement.

      Now to your husband . . . . tell him that pink is a color than enhances performance. It is actually true. In a past color study body builders perceived and accomplished a more successful workout while in a pink room. That should do it!
