I love Pink and Aqua

Just feast your eyeballs on this magnificent dresser
 in pink *squeal* and the frenchy aqua chair. 
This lovely image was posted by Lily of Opulence.  
Simply GOR~GEE~OUS. 
Which brings me to this post...

The swan song of summer still has me stuck in love with pink,
 and my new favorite color, aqua! 
Robins Egg Blue, Tiffany Blue...its all good!
While everyone else is hooking up with autumnal golds and browns.... I'm lusting after this combo.
I am going to savor a few pink and aqua combinations
 I have around my house for another week or so.
Like this vintage plate I got junking in NH this summer. 
This pile of frenchy pillows in pinks and blues are summerlicious!
I pile my pillows up on old aqua blanket chest that hides my recyclables.
Limoges demitasse set in painterly aqua and pink in the wispiest shades was another NH score.
My old favorite chintzware pitcher and a "new" old platter share pretty blues and pinks.
Martha Stewart.com shows a bike in rosey pink in front of an aqua porch. 
I have the aqua bike and am now going to paint my bike basket pink!
Can't you just picture a pink basket? Yummmm...
Pink closet from Traditional Home with a polka dot bench in
 blues, purples and pinks, but it's the aqua bag that grabs my eye!
Wouldn't my rug from Company C below look perfect in this closet?
I just adored this rug when I bought it on impulse, and I understand why. Aqua and Pink!
Even though it went with nothing, I wanted to incorporate aqua into my home's color palette.

So.....
good bye to the combo pink/aqua I adore. 
I am switching gears to usher in the fall. 
I'll see you two in the spring!

  4. I know I am going to have a hard time parting with summer because I love all of my pastels. I can incorporated lighter shades of golds and yellows, but that is as far as I go. The outside of my house get's hit with the bright colors!! ;-D

    I love the pink and aqua together. The platter you bought is just beautiful and I admired your rug awhile back...gorgeous!!

  6. Just by looking at my blog, you can see that I love that color combination! Actually, pale pale blue with just a tiny touch of green in it is my favorite color. If it gets toooo green, I don't like it. I had my kitchen painted that color once (until I had to paint it neutral in order to sell the house) :( and I loved the way it looked with my white marble counters and pink flowers in a pretty vase.

  7. I love the pink/aqua combo, too. Just great. But, like you, I'm ushering in fall colors. By the way, your rug is fabulous! It must be like having summer all year long! Susan

  9. I know what you mean about the domino effect! I've been known to call it the snowball effect!
    But either way it definitely exists!
    I love that rug!

  10. I love all your pink and aqua pieces!! So beautiful!! I will keep all my beautiful rose china pieces some of which are pink and aqua. But I am going to a more traditional decorating style. More earth tones, browns, creams etc.

  12. Yeah, that dresser made me sqeal... and you are right, your rug would be perfect in the Traditional Home closet. LOVE that rug. I wonder what the pink striae background for the shoes shelves is (fabric, wallpaper, paint). Thanks for the great post.
