A Room of Her Own - Lee Ann Thornton

Love the idea of hiding all the technical stuff in a beautiful armoire.
Close the door and you have a clean, soft, pretty atmosphere for relaxing and focusing on creative ideas!

Pink Guest House of Martha Stewart

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought I would feature some pinks and reds in the coming days.

I wondered how many of you have seen Martha Stewart's pink guest house at her Skylands estate on Seal Island off the coast of Maine.

Martha purchased this estate about 10 years ago and it came completely furnished.  Since it had formerly been owned by the Edsel Ford family (that's right, Henry's son), you can only imagine what treasures it beheld.  The vintage wicker itself is to die for.  The laundry room in the main house is unlike any laundry room I have ever seen (I will show you that after Valentine's).  Not only were the linens and china from all over the world left behind, but an original Edsel car was still parked in the new, of course.

Martha has worked her magic on the estate bringing it right up to snuff.  The mile long crushed pink granite driveway is raked, washed and stored every winter and laid again every spring!  The main house has pink granite fireplaces, as well.

So, in keeping with the pink tones already installed in the guest house, Martha worked with it and embellished it as only she can.  Pure decadence!

A Passion for Pink!

Anyone who knows me, knows my passion for pink!  A somewhat controversial color, but I've always been inclined to it - notice the background color on my blog!

Some people seem to think it's too girly, or too much fluff......or whatever, but at the same time, it offers comfort, softness and calmness. 

We know that soft pink lighting in a room creates a relaxing feeling and that soft pink lighting at a dressing table softens one's features.  Soft pink in a bedroom offers calm and serenity and what could be more beautiful than an arrangement of soft pink flowers.....the final touch to any color room as it is so neutral!  Sometimes, just a pink accent will soften a look.

Pink with gold accents....gorgeous!  And pink, green and all time favorite color combination....just cannot go wrong with that one!

Here are a few of my favorite images.....including a touch of whimsy!
