Ode to pink

Pink doesn’t necessarily mean girly and saccharin. It can be, but it also can be sophisticated, understated and at times even edgy. The key is finding the right shade and letting it shine: pink really doesn’t like to share the limelight.

I once painted the walls of my dining room in metallic pink. Everything else was pared down from the natural wood dining room table, limed white chairs to the white silk curtains. It was gorgeous. But after a few years I needed a change. Now my walls are white. The tiny room does appear bigger, but every so often I still hanker after my pink walls. In their honour, here is my ode to the this glorious colour.
