monday color combo

happy memorial day monday!! today's combo of pink and yellow (gold too!!) has been on trend for a while now -haven't they all really? i mean i am not inventing these combinations of colors am i? no, i'm not. although the thought of going out with a really nice camera and coming up with my own combinations sounds like a heap of fun. b/c frankly there aren't a lot of 'em left in the world of interiors that i haven't covered. i mean there ARE but they are not a'plenty, so if someone out there wants to philanthrop-ize me with a nice camera i would gladly get out there and photograph some new combos like...lavender and orange, lavender and red, more black and emerald, ochre and purple, dusty pink and wood tones..i got lots!! and you can find a few out there but not enough to make one of these here posts. so anyway...pink and yellow is such a good combo. so warm and glowy, girly and ethereal. check out this moth...it's called a rosy maple moth and it really is pink and yellow!! and i must have that rug (#15) for my bedroom. if any of my loyal readers want to see a color combo come to life please let me know. i love a challenge and i will do my best to bring you the beauty!!!

Wasn't really a fan of that particular dress Gwynnie wore - something about what it did to the shape of her boobs....

On the other hand, LOVE the lemonade color combo!

my favorite and my best said...

yeah, the dress wasn't the most flattering fit but i LOVE the color with her buttery blonde hair.

I love chandeliers in bathrooms! And the grey building with pink shutters is sublime!

I think pink looks good with just about any color. I am loving these color posts.

I loved your comment...maybe that rug is the "unexpected" that we all claim to love in a room...lol I think you should do a blue/green post. You always find the best pictures. thanks

Great combination - you're totally right, very feminine, I totally adore it! Is that a crib or a lounger in photos 02? - whatever it is, I want it! Love the striped bathroom, too - would be wonderful and cheerful to wake up to :)

Frankly I never thought I'd much like those colors together (pastels for me- not so much)but I was really digging this.

Gynnie just has funny shaped boobs and she really isn't a big fan of "foundations". She needs a stylist who isn't afraid to sit her down and tell her the truth.
