Life Has Been Coming Up Roses

So you can start to think in pink.

Just in time for Valentines day magazines covers barrage us with pink and I kind of love it. Never has the taupey shades of pink out there on the market felt more right. After a recession full of beige this feminine color provides a sweet relief. Among the covers that featured pink details were Art News, House Beautiful, and Lucky.

The obsession with pink may have started when Pantone announce their color of the year, honeysuckle pink. Observe Swatch #18-2121:

This time I agree that this is a color with momentum, unlike last year when they selected turquoise (yikes).

Pink has been inspiring me too. Some Pink things that have gotten my juices flowing lately:

And... is it ridiculous to feel inspired by nail-polish?

Lovin' Royal Flush Blush by OPI. Go to "try on this color" on the website so you can see how the shade will look on your hand.
