Pretty Rooms for Pink Saturday 12/19/09

Happy Pink Saturday. Join Beverly at howsweetthesound to view the other participants. I think you'll enjoy it.

Again, Beverly has asked us to share something and this time it is our holiday traditions. I'm not much into "traditions" for the holidays. I'm pretty much "easy does it" with that, plus I don't bake anymore because hubs and I certainly don't need the extra goodies but he is very specific about the food and it is rather easy also: turkey, mashed potatoes, candied yams, peas, waldorf salad, cranberry sauce, dressing and pie of course. If one thing varies, he misses it! He is such a traditionalist when it comes to his food. If we are invited out for that holiday and one of the things on our menu isn't on our hostess' menu then he doesn't consider it a "real Thanksgiving meal." He's so funny on this, but gotta love th' man for being so sentimental and he is nothing if not sentimental! ;-)

There isn't much pink in this room but it was so attractive I couldn't let it go by without showing you what just a touch of "the most favorite color in the world" can do to a vintage room.

These walls are about the color of mine and that looks like a Laura Ashley fabric to me. Beautiful, romantic and feminine.

Pink and yellow is my favorite color combination. I've always loved it above all others. They simply complement each other beautifully and dramatically.

No pink here but isn't this room just glowing? It sets a mood as no other room can. Picture yourself on Christmas day in this room. Magnificent!

And now for a few modern day photos of red and/or Christmas rooms.

White, red and pink. Is this not lovely? While modern in a sense, it also speaks to a farmhouse style for its occupants. Darling!

I could definitely find solace in this eye-catching room.

A love red and white stunning vignette. Rich, luxurious and yet very homey.

You would sparkle in this dining setting. Glorious!

Would a guest not feel like a queen in this retreat? I would certainly love to be able to offer my guests this luxury.

Everyone should try a red bedroom at least once in their lives. I had a red wall in our family room in California. The room had a huge bay window and all the people walking by on the sidewalk would just stand and stare at it. Hubs and I would giggle at their reactions. It was quite flattering for them to stop, point and talk among themselves about it.
