Tickled pink ...

Six months into 'Honeysuckle Pink' as Pantone's Color of the Year, and I'm still not tired of the shade. Amazing! Mind you, I prefer pink in small doses, and it seems others of like mind enjoy honeysuckle as accents, too.

Ooh la la. The Paris Apartment image hits the mark with a perfect balance of pink color.
With neutrals as a background, pink seems to work beautifully. What I love about the apartment above is the chameleon approach to accessorizing the space. When Pantone selects next year's shade, new pillows and throws can be introduced to highlight new trends.

The pink sofa below is a showstopper amongst the neutrals and textural elements in the room. Oodles of natural light in the room above and below reinforce the pops of pink.

Those far more brave than I will appreciate the dramatic decorative approach below. Is it just me, or is pink's intensity at maximum capacity against a Reflex Blue wall color?

Pink, tufted canapy is vividly captured in this photo from Design Blog 1969.

Far from subtle, the 'Barbie Suite' at Las Vegas' Palms Casino Resort captures the true essence of the doll and Pepto-Bismol, all at the same time. I'm feeling a bit of heartburn, indigestion and upset stomach just looking at this room. Exactly, who would request the suite below?

Is there any real chance Ken would enjoy his stay here?

Just give me a lovely vase of hydrageas, and I'm tickled pink.
