Pink Sofa Love

Pink Two Cushion Sofa

Pink Wallpaper 

 

I keep seeing pink sofas everywhere and I love them!!! Inspired by Jules’ sofa on Cougar Town, I did a little searching of my own to see what I could find and oh my! So pretty. The thin arms and the extra wide double cushions in the sofa pictured above are perfect, not that girly either. Well, maybe a little girly. So my question is, can a pink sofa be used in a space without becoming super girly?

 

Pink Sofa with Single Cushion

The Decorista

 

The square tufted cushions on this sofa give it a masculine edge especially paired with the edgy black painting and other dark accents. You could really play this masculinity up I think, if you needed to justify a rather large and important sofa purchase if say, for instance, you bought one on impulse while shopping without your husband.

 

Pink Sofa with Curved Back

I have developed a love for curved back sofas. The elegant shape is very appealing. Coupled with tufting. Sigh. Let’s talk about pink for just a second. It adds warmth and depth and a touch of feminity to a room and doesn’t necessarily overwhelm to the point that it need be tucked away into the princess’s chamber. Right? Come on guys are you with me?

 

Pink Scroll Arm Sofa

Bright Nest

 

Pink leather!!! Seriously. Wow. In tabacco shades of brown this sofa would be uber masculine, fit for a smoky den, but in this shade anything is possible!!

 

Pink Sofa with Contrast Piping

Contrast piping in this room ties the accents together. Black and pink is so Chanel. Love it.You could also flip it and add pink piping to a neutral sofa.

 

Pink Tufted Sofa

Maison Luxe

Lighting gives this beauty a warm soft glow. While you may not commit to an entire sofa in pink I think an accent chair would be a perfect way to experiment with delicious shades of petal, watermelon, blush, salmon, fuchsia, grapefruit and rose.

The Glitter Guide 

Everything about this room is lovely. The black and white photos above the sofa are such a cute idea. You could also balance this shade of petal pink with geometric pillows in more masculine tones and textures. So I think the answer is yes. Yes, you can bring a PINK sofa into a room without rendering it girly. Really. Try it and send me a pic!

The Writing on the Walls

Quote Written on a Wall Post

Pinterest 

 

The writing on the walls is a summation of events which you may or may not interpret, but what if you could alter that? Determine the outcome? Write the writing on the walls? While many of you may be scrubbing little people’s ideas of writing on the walls, perhaps they aspire to leave great messages for you to ponder. Or maybe it is a sign for you to take matters into your own hands and write what you write.

 

Writing on Blue Wall

Design is Mine

 

If the writing on the walls were laid out with clear logic in poetic verse… on a wall painted the blue of a sunny skied day, I think the days would be good! And also I am in love with tufting as seen here and three images below. Gorgeous!! Just wait until we get into sofas. Coming soon!

 

Hand Writing on Dining Room Wall

Recycled Consign and Design

 

What do you want your walls to say? Your favourite verse, quote, lyric… maybe even a directive or idea for your family to live with or by?

 

Large Writing on White Wall

 Pinterest

 

I want to write a Haruki Murakami novel all over my walls. How surreal that would be, even now I get flashbacks from the Windup Bird Chronicle when he’s in that tunnel and can’t get back. Of course my favourite Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World would be more of a contender for my walls.

 

Lyrics Written on Walls

First Time Fancy

 

Make sure your penmanship is top notch to avoid it taking on that gone off the deep end look we see in movies about serial killers. Writing on the walls is something many of us have tried our hands at, at one point or another (admit it! bathroom stalls, graffiti, etc.) but let’s try it again, with deliberation, because with deliberation great things come.
