living in pink.

i think this is a case of the ‘glass half full’ — but in this situation we’re talking pink paint. i love the idea of this bedroom being ‘wainscoated’ but just with paint on three quarters of the way up the walls, rather than actual molding. it makes the room feel really light and airy with the solid white above — the light seems to bounce of the upper walls and ceiling almost like the room is glowing. while pretty colorful, it’s still very soft and feminine.

    That blue bench is awesome. I wonder where they got it or if it’s custom made.

  3. My love for pink is so big, this could easily be my home!

    I adore this look! The three-quarters paint job, and even that shade of pink, which I wouldn’t have expected to like as a wall color…beautiful.

    What about that fabulous carpet (any info on brand or where to purchase)?
    Its a fabulous flat weave take on a Beni Ourain. Never seen anything like it.

      Dear SFgirlbybay,
      Would you PLEASE email me who made the southwestern rug in the pink bedroom? I noticed that another fan asked and I did not see a reply to her post. Thanks for being an awesome resourse. I love your style.

      It looks as though 2 rugs may have been sewn together. And I wish I knew the source too. I’m going to keep this idea in mind when I look at Ikea and World Market and Pier 1 rugs

    For several years I had a guest room that was painted in this same dusty pink. I loved it, but I have to admit that this wainscoted look is even better. Why do we get such a sense of happy from pink?

    Amanda- the bedding is from Hay Design.

    The areas above the pink looks like a lovely light grey, which I love even more than the idea of white.

    Love the rug! Where did you find it? Beautiful room.

  12. Nicole says:

    I too would love to know where the rug came from! So unique! Thanks

  13. I love pink and I wish I had a room in my apt that I could do this to! I know a bunch of others have asked about the rug, where is it from?

    The lovely Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors ( is the one who styled the room for that shoot, and she was kind enough to point me Halcyon Lake… specifically, it’s the Fino Mystic 3:

  15. nevine says:
