Day 14... Pink, Bien Sur!

Nothing major to report except that I absolutely adore Roomie Trois (we went to an event together last night and are planning another night out this weekend), and I've decided on a wall color for my bedroom. Originally, I wanted a pale duck egg blue color, but after searching and searching, I have yet to find it. And then I watched Season Six of Sex and the City and was reminded of how much I adored Carrie's pink bedroom wall (couldn't find a proper pic). And with that, I very easily settled on "Magnolia Grandiflora" - a gorgeous pale pink from the new Martha Stewart Living paint collection at Home Depot. (Bonus: It's low VOC, too!") I plan to paint this Thursday or Friday - HURRAY! I can't WAIT to have a room sans disgusting white walls w/ scary marks everywhere.

Btw, here are some "BEFORE" pics of my room. It's a pretty good size, and the closet is pretty fantastic! After painting the room, I plan to hit up IKEA for one piece of major furniture (a desk/vanity to replace the small bookshelf and white table) and then I'm going to either wallpaper (aka "giftwrap" with some fab print paper) or paint the inside of my closet (hot pink!). Fun, huh? I'll keep you guys posted and maybe I'll do a "room tour" video after I'm done! It certainly won't take long... (P.S. Excuse the mess!)

Oooh, so fabulous. I love the color pink. In fact, I'm no longer afraid to admit it is my favorite color. I can only imagine how gorgeous a pink wall is going to look in your room!
