My (current) Favorite Color

I’ve never been much for pink, but lately I’ve found myself so attracted to the palest shade of pink. Call it rose, call it blush, it feels more womanly than girly and looks beautiful with just about everything (especially blues and greens!). Here are some of my favorite incarnations of the color blush ::

Love the use of blush in this gorgeous interior by Romaine Ricard. The color is just so soft and inviting. And I especially like the unexpected pairing with navy and citrine.

This party tassel is spectacular. The gold and cream just make it seem so heavenly. Later this week I’m helping host a baby shower and you can be sure I’ll be decorating with blush!

This pale pink file cabinet from CB2 would be an easy way to add blush to a room. Also, how handy is a file cabinet on wheels? 

I would’ve never dreamed of painting my walls pink until I saw this home. It casts such a warm glow, like a sunrise on white walls. And again, I just love this color with navy!

And of course, you can wear the color. I don’t know when the heck I’d get a chance to wear something like this, but it’s so dreamy and ethereal. Maybe when I win an Emoticon Emmy for my fly emoticon skills… :)

Blush is such a decadent color it makes you want to gobble it up, which is exactly why this cake looks so scrumptious. My friend Eden gave me the tip to dye frosting with pureed strawberries for a natural and tasty pink. It’d be easy to get just the perfect shade of blush if you mixed the frosting yourself.

The animal prints from Sharon Montrose are all the rage these days, but it’s not hard to see why. What better art than a portrait of one of God’s amazing creatures? This flamingo print would be such a statement piece on the wall of a living room or a little girl’s nursery.

What about you? Do you like the color? Would you ever wear it? Decorate with it? What’s your favorite color these days?
