How can you tell? Head on over to Holiday House and see the bun's room. It's pink. PINK. In. My House.
I'm still reeling.
While it made a little girl extremely happy and she demonstrated mad roller skills in the 4 and under category, for me, I feel like Pottery Barn Kids puked in my house. It's partly my own fault, because when her room was green, I was pretty lenient with the buying of pink accessories. I mean, why not, right?
Well, here's why not: 15 shades of pink all going on. So, my mission for the next few weeks is to de-pinkify. How? Here's phase 1:
- replace any and all pink sheets with their green or yellow brethren
- infuse some warmer browns and grays into the room
- put up more art to cover more of the pink
- paint the (pink) play table top
In the end, I hope to end up more in this realm.
Still pink. But, warm and cozy. Ahhhhhh. Stay tuned for pictures and my progress in making a pink room palatable to the over 5 set. I'll share pictures next week, once I'm able to execute at least some of the bullet points above.
