Pink Madness

 
It's True..I am MAD about Pink.
I get asked by my clients all the time about how & where I get my inspiration from..
and there isn't really 1 right answer.

It can be a work of art that already exists in the home or one that simply created a spark in me at that moment ..




or a wall paper like any of these from designers guild, china seas or pierre frey-braquenie.


 
and then story comes to life...




However, today I was confronted with another side of pink..one that moved me in a way I hadn't been moved before. While reading this week's TIME, I come accross this image which instantly stops me cold as protesters are 'marked' by pink dye in order to easily round them up...

How can Pink be so disturbing? While I spend my days trying to allow myself to feel as much creativity as possible, I am grateful for the freedom of choice that is offered to me.

Pink to me = Love, Happiness, Purity and sheer joy ..
when my little Maya screeches out in joy about how she "loooooves" pink and purple polka dots - I have to smile and say I totally agree!
and so I remain ...MAD about Pink!
