Tip toeing through the tulips


I'm almost finished with my "girl" nursery ideas for my soon to be arriving little one's room.{look for the post next week - the "boy" options will soon follow}. That coupled with the fact that I've been helping my sister choose paint colors for her home = me perusing what feels like hundreds of paint chips over the past couple of weeks. I thought I'd cover pink today..
Pink {like all colors} comes in endless shades.. It can get sticky sweet pretty quickly, but it's also good to take risks and have fun!

Here's a quick + simple break down with just a few of the options...
{Cooler pinks with a hint of purple}


{the paint color was listed in House Beautiful for this room as Benjamin Moore's Peach Cooler {very peach} this room photographed much cooler.
f

{Lighter hues with a hint of peach}

C

{Warmer + deeper hues with a touch of coral}



{Soft + sweet shades}

I used Pink Peony on the ceiling in my daughter's nursery (with gray walls). It is a really pretty, soft, subtle pink. Good luck with your nursery!

So many lovely, lovely rooms. I was hooked at the pink with the hint of purple. Tempered with the green as shown is stunning. All in all, you can't go wrong with any of those beautiful hues. Very exciting!!

These are such beautiful images. I love anything pink and you have such a great collection here! My favorite room is the one with the black and white painting and the zebra chair. Thanks!
