Pretty in Pink

Like most things in your life, things fall in and out of favor, well its the same for me in my business life. I am not sure quite what it is, but lately I have wanted nothing more than to paint the world pink. 

I have a new project I am working on down by the beach in Los Angeles, sort of a rambling Mediterranean style home. It's still under construction, so it's still a ways away from a final decision, but my client asked me yesterday what color I was thinking for the outside, and after a brief pause, I decided...pink!

I think that in the right shade it can be such a flattering color, that is not necessarily too feminine. My dream of course is to do a library or a mans office in the color to prove my point, but so far the right client hasn't come along....yet!

If you are looking for the right color pink, take a look at Farrow and Ball paints, you almost can't go wrong with their classic choices.

I grew up on the beach -- on the Gulf of Mexico, and my fondest memories are of sitting on the deck with my grandmother watching the sunset and enjoying the ever-morphing show of what she referred to as the "afterglow" -- those pinks, oranges, and purples that color the sky just after the sun sinks.

So, I can picture a pink beach house that works with that "afterglow" palatte.
