Soft pinks at home

I’m not a huge fan of the way toys companies or interiors companies produce and market all their products in pink for girls and blue for boys, especially the ones with Barbie, Bob The Builder themed etc…I think given the chance, kids have far more to offer than a life through pink and blue glasses just because of their gender.
Saying that, as a mother I can’t deny that a lot of little girls are going through a “pink if not Princess’ phase at some point in their lives. Mila did and believe me it was not something I encouraged!!
A couple of years ago I posted two articles “Pink, pink you stink”  and Pink for grown-ups here) that gave advices on how to decorate a little girl bedroom with soft, touches of pink. I think the best way to do this, is to stay clear from the bright Barbie pink and go for vintage pink – a softer colour which goes very well with soft, light grey. So here are three of my favourite pink home accessories that I’ll be more than happy to have at home…

1. Vintage pink bed linen in French washed linen (soft and gorgeous!) 2. Soft pink ball chair (looks wonderful next to the white one, the lilac or grey ones) 3. This beautiful tutu in vintage pink (which we have in grey at home)

  1. We are going through the pink stage now:), I wrote about it yesterday on my blog…although I believe it’s starting to fade a bit now. I like couple pink items around my home, but really just couple:),…love that tutu, so pretty with white or pale grey..

  2. Waw! I have just posted PINK post on my blog… it is look like pink is favourite colour and with grey shadows is amazing! Like tutu as well and need to seek some fabric to sew similar one (dont worry still know waht to buy in your shop). Maybe (sure?) that pink bed linen??? It is great! Have to seek you page after while I havent. Too many nice items igain. Btw. asked for catalouque many times and nevere received one. Are there some difficulties with sending to Switzerland?

  3. Adore the dusty pink of the tutu, would love it for myself actually…furthest thing from a ballerina but hey!! :)
    have a great weekend

  4. That last picture brings a huge smil on my face , Mila looks so beautiful happy here and already so big!
    Must agree on the pink after the baby pink my daughter went through a second pink phase being dressed in totally black with a very strong pink. going to London and visiting Camden town was so great for her to pimp up her outfit then ;)

    Was reading your jury stuff … gosh I thought that was something typical american only!

    bonne nuit!

  5. Hi Jana

    Unfortunately because we are still a small company, it would be far too expensive for us to mail our catalogue outside the UK but we always enclose a copy with each int’l order and the next one will be available on issuu like the first one but also as a downloadable version. thx

  6. I love tutus sooo much and my doughter has many :)

    Greetings from midsummer Finland where sun sets ever!
