Flamingo Pink // Black // White

It’s Valentine’s Day toady and I am single so I am {choosing} not to participate in the hyped up gift guides… Who needs gifts anyway? I kinda like the idea of a cocktail and spending my evening on Pinterest looking at interiors and women’s fashion! {and maybe a few ‘quote’ pins that make me feel better about my singleness!} Girl Power, Anyone?? 😉

So in keeping with the Valentine spirit I still want to look for inspiration in all things… even this day. What better place to start then with color! I have always loved pink over the traditional red for v-day. It feels more sweet, less sexy. {another hot color this spring is the coral-red, keep an eye out for it} Over the last few weeks I have been on the hunt for interiors that had flamingos as an accent or even designed around that pinky/orange color that flamingos have. I love the additional pop of black and white stripes!

So for this Valentine’s Day I am dreaming of flamingo pink interiors!
