Bold move

Sometimes a bold move is all you need to change things up, to take a space in a new direction.
Could you do it?

I wouldn't, and yes, I would do it.

GUGAW said...

hmm love the sentiment of bold, would have to be a slightly more magenta/purple pink to match the other shades in my home! I'm very tempted to go bold with a busy wallpaper pattern, maybe I could paint the furniture a bright colour to match!

Amy said...

Hell yeah! I would totally live in a pink house - but only if it had a spiral staircase I could paint pink!

Patricia Torres said...

i love the teal window on the pink house. there's no way that the owners are boring people. nope.

also- this looks like something you may enjoy:

it may not be entirely cost efficient, but it seems like a pretty darn cool idea to me.

I lived in New Orleans for three years, and you routinely see pink, turquoise, or bright yellow houses down there. I love, love, love homes in unusual colors; I would totally do it!

g. said...

Pink house any day. Blue, too.

I love when my home stands out from the masses. Luckily most houses is very old and boring where I live so it is very easy. Inside I just love to shake up the rooms with bright colors on single walls and in accesories.

That spiral staircase is so cool! I love how the pink makes it stand out EVEN more.

Kellie said...

I'm loving that bold pink. Although I'm not so sure the hubs would dig it too much... :)

Dimitrova said...

Bold colors are fantastic! You see colorful homes all around historic neighbourhoods around here and it is so happy - pink, yellow, green, blue, orange, salmon, you name it!

You'd have to be sooo brave to have those pink stairs! Wow.

bananas. said...

N + S said...

My parents live in a salmon pink house so this isn't too daring in my mind - guess I'm used to it! Although, that staircase is def. bold

I don't know about a pink house but that pink sofa is killing me! Especially with the b&w pillows. I want it!

Blair said...

I'm a big beige chicken.

erin said...

christina said...

I'm all about a bold touch here and there. Love this post! And that staircase...amazing.

Mo said...

I love bold colors. I don't know if pink would be my first choice though--bright yellow?? With a mini cooper to match?

Hanako66 said...

I love bold colors as well!!!!

Elizabeth Marie said...

Pink, blue, purple...shit, stipes, polka dots. I would love it!

LipstickOne said...

love it all....too bad i don't have a staircase in the middle of my living room..lol

ana b. said...

I love the text in this post and wholly agree with the sentiments. It's all about confidence and integrity. You want a pink house. It's nobody else's business - unless you live in Scandinavia or somewhere which regulates the colour of houses. That would be so sad.

Rachel Follett said...

I don't think I would be brave enough to have a pink painted home and my husband would definitely not approve. I would however love to have that pink staircase!

The Cottage Cheese said...

I could live in a pink house, but only in certain cities or neighborhoods (think island, coastal, or almost anywhere in Florida).

Diana said...

ah! scott and i are looking at homes and the first thing we said was "LET'S PAINT IT PINK!!"

Lindsey said...

Um, I could do THAT pink house, but only in the right city. I could NOT do the staircase...well, if I inherited it, I could learn to love it. Not sure the husband could.

Tamstyles said...

I love the bold colors! the pink stairs are hot...

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Same. Not sure my boyfriend would agree, though :)

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

OMG, I live in house exactly the same color of pink for 10 years, while living in Germany. It didn't bother me at all; I even liked it.

Lovely blog!

ryder said...

Jennifer Ramos said...
