My Pink Room

This is our recently redecorated breakfast room. We moved to a new house in town 4 years ago after living in the country for 11 years. I have had a difficult time decorating this house because even though I like country things and I brought many country things on this move, the country items just don't seem at home here.

First we had this area all done in white and it was pretty but too sterile.

Then we hah dark green valances with fruit on them, gold brocade on the seat cushions, dark antique-looking plaques on the wall. It was also pretty but not very pleasing to me.

I found this pink toile fabric at a very good price on Ebay and saw the wreaths on another blog and I thought pink is what that room needs. I have never liked pink before but I LOVE this room. I was afraid my family might think it was too girly but they seem to like it as much as I do. I think they must secretly like pink too because they have been adding to the room.

My mom is a prolific crocheter and she brought me 3 large doilies in bubble pink.

DS Jimmy just brought these pink flowers from the grocery store, said he thought they would look pretty in the pink room.


  1. I love your pink room, too! It looks so fresh and pretty.

  2. You know I love pink! I want to sit down and have a cuppa. :)

    Cheers! LA

  3. What a beautiful room to start your day in with a lovely cuppa tea
