Pink Prettiness

Big news in our household: SHE is standing on her own!  My life is about to change!

Anyways, enough about the cool stuff my baby is doing (can you tell I am a proud Mom?).  I am a planner, always have been.  I like to have control and organization-it helps keep me a bit sane.  So when my husband and I found out I was pregnant I wanted to find out the sex of the baby and from the very beginning I knew in my heart of hearts we were having a girl.  Call it Mother's intuition if you will.  So when the ultrasound made it official my husband became immediately worried-everything was going to be PINK.  What makes it worse-I llllloooovvvvveeeee the color pink.

So I promised him I wouldn't paint the nursery pink, wouldn't dress HER in too many pink clothes, and keep all the baby stuff neutral.  And, well, I've kept 2 of those promises.  SHE wears pink and lots of it.  So it got me thinking: "How can I make pink adult?"  More importantly: "How can I convince the hubby?"  Well, show him these super cute pink rooms for staters.


Just the right amount of pink... and gold!

The wall color might be too much for us but I love it!

Perhaps pink accessories are the best approach to take


  1. Hi Jenna! Pink for your little girl's room would be just perfect! I love that photo from CL with the French style bed and stripes!! Your blog is lovely!

    Have a great day ~

    :) T

  2. Tracy~ Unfortunately I lost the pink room debate. As my husband said "we are painting it a color for a boy someday." But I got my pink in her room in bits-I'll be posting pictures next week so be sure to check it out.


  3. Jenna, love the pink on your precious daughter and I totally agree...the second image with the pink draperies is perfection!!

  4. Pink accessories are a good compromise until she hits the tweens and then she will probably want pinkness everywhere!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. It is so lovely to meet you. I am now following your blog too!

    Best wishes always,
