Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Summers longest days are here, it’s coming to the close of August my favorite month of the year. It holds special memories and it’s the month we’re celebrating my anniversary and birthday. In my home I try to keep my favorite pale pink color minimal. Flowers from the garden and mostly a few vintage accessories, my boys and husband appreciate that I’m sure…Today I’m sharing a few photographs I’ve taken to give you an idea how I use those touches of pale pink in and around my home. I hope this inspires that you too can do. This is useful for any color that you love, but not desire to saturate your space with.
A garden bench, a campaign bed up in the garden house with vintage fabrics.
Pale pink heirloom roses from my garden have a delicious lemony fragrance.
In the kitchen tea towels and a sucre tin planted with mint. A pink metal stool, a vintage find I love.
This pretty variety of hydrangea on my table with a one hundred wishes.
The palest of pink, was what I was dreaming of when designing my wedding gown, it came true!
My design tip: If your favorite color is a bit much for your decor, bring it in for your favorite occasion. Bring each family members favorite color in on their special occasion, they will love you for it.
