update on color trend: super baby pink
i think amy at the great new blog design dna is on to something: a color that she charmingly calls "super baby pink" as in "the super baby pink outdoor cushions are speaking to me." if you're looking for an alternate to the beautiful (yet already ubiquitous) bright citron colors of the season, you may want to consider it. (eg, as a ceiling color in an all-white room, say.)
(oh, and don't let its softness deceive you. nor should you be tempted to mistake it for the preppy irony of a jcrew pink. this is something else, a barely-there hue. maybe we should think of it as a subversive off-white.)
... will update you on this one!..
now here are some updates on this:
UPDATE! 4 april:
paperpony via d*s
UPDATE! 30 april:
Genifer Goodman's home (May '02, Lucky mag), via designer's library.
Martha Stewart's guest house on the cover of the May MS Living...
so I'd love to hear from you about this... is this a color for which you can see yourself developing a fondness? or is it too... well, too sugar-girly? myself, i'm definitely loving it, though haven't incorporated it yet into the house...
i am thinking, though, of painting all my wooden furniture a nude color, in high-gloss....
