Do you know what the color of the year for 2010 was? Turquoise. Which really makes sense. I mean, even if you didn’t paint your walls turquoise (or rent and are unable to), chances are you (or maybe it was just me) added turquoise accents in paintings, pillows, maybe even painted your nails or added a turquoise shirt to the mix. Applaud yourself….you were so on trend.
Bam! Talk about no excuses right? So when I said, “equally excited” you should know it took me a few days to get there. When they announced this, I was worried. I have never been a real girly-girl and pink scared me a little…A LOT. But, once I started thinking about it and looking around for inspiration, I honestly can’t wait to incorporate this little honeysuckle into my decor. It’s not hot pink bubble gum or a newborn baby pastel (whew). It has vigor and verve and it is uplifting, like turquoise–the only difference is, it is new and not overdone. Which is what I am most excited for. Now I am just gathering a few inspirations before I start adding a little pink into my life.
