Think Pink

Pink doesn't have to be sissy. Pink can be bold, sassy; soft and sophisticated; modern; girly if you want it to be; masculine if you try. I agree that pink walls can be intimidating- not for the weak of heart. In design school I was told that a prison study was done on wall color and the outcome was that pink invoked anger the fastest. Could that really be true? If so, maybe that's what up with all our little girls, not hormones. :) Don't let that scare you away from pink, but if you're nervous, start slowly. Why not try adding pink fabric in your home. Start with a pillow and work your way up to a chair or a headboard. Get brave and reupholster a vintage sofa. Yum! So, in honor of breast cancer awareness month and the brave, bold women and men who are fighting it, we have pulled together some of our favorite pink fabrics.
This cane print is actually an indoor/outdoor fabric from Duralee! One of my favorite fabrics of all time.
Gorgeous Kravet silk buffalo check. Can't you picture some beautiful panels flanking your window? We all love this youthful oversized floral print from Duralee.Could this be hotter? Faux croc from Fabricut. I would put this on a traditional Louis IV chair for fun.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend and this one from Duralee doesn't disappoint.
Such a beautiful fabric from Highland House. This pink geometric needlework would make stunning pillows.
Delicious silk stripe from Fabricut. Think outside the box and run it horizontally.
More needlework detail from Highland House's Marrakesh collection. Wingback chair, anyone?
Can you go wrong with a classic toile? No. This Wedgwood toile from Kravet is simply beautiful. I could see it in a completely modern room as an unexpected accent.
Can you do a list of pink fabrics without a floral? I think not. This linen from Lee Industries is sophisticated and updated.
And lastly, but not least; because when is a velvet ever least; a sumptuous pink velvet with a slight texture. Where wouldn't this go?
All of these fabrics are available through Vintage Scout Interiors. Start your project now and you could have it done by the Holidays. And once again in honor of breast cancer awareness month, mention this blog when you order fabric by the yard through the end of October, we will take 20% off your fabric and donate that to the Komen Fund for the Cure. Call us 937-312-9461 or email us info@vintagescout.com at the Studio for details.
