Ikea Does Pink Right

I adore all things from Ikea and it’s no secret that I love pink, so I am enthused to do a blog post on a combination of both.  Who says an older woman can’t love pink? The romantic color soothes my soul, reminiscent of all things lovely – pink sterling roses, the pink hue on youthful faces and powder pink, puff sleeved, vintage dresses. It’s also a fun colour – think pink cotton candy!

Ikea has the just the right shade of pink that I love so much.  It’s a little in between bubble gum pink and rose pink – just so feminine and pretty.  They have marvellous little chairs that would be perfect in a little girl’s nursery.

I just need to add this disclaimer:

Even though I am thrilled by pink I can be also totally turned off when it appears in a garish metallic shade on cars, for instance.  In those cases pink can look absolutely revolting.  Pink has to come in absolutely the right shade and sometimes it works best with other shades like black, white, apple green, pale yellow or even blue.
