Pink with Powell Brower Home

I have Bethany here today from Powell Brower Home sharing a room she created for my 31 Days of Pink series.  

Hi Pink Pagodans - Bethany here, from Powell Brower Home.  We're honored Jennifer asked us to participate in her 31 Days of Pink series.  I wanted to cue up some Aerosmith in the background for your listening pleasure, but just like those tricky .gif images, I couldn't figure such things out. 

I wanted to put together a room based on Jennifer's affinity for blue and pink.  In doing so, I got caught up in a totally fabricated story-line of a single lady living in a modern condo in the city.  Her condo is very modern and as such, as pretty stark lines about it.  Incorporating furniture and chinois accents was going to be super fun.  Whenever I start to think about furnishing a room from the ground up, my mind does one of those cartoon screeching to a halt in order to avoid the dreaded perfect shiny and new disease.  You know what I'm talking about... when a home has only store bought things and just looks so static.  

To get a chinoiserie feel, you can't just buy contrived new items.  You have to layer in old world to get the 'collected' look.  So I had a ball picking out things without a male point-of-view in the back of my mind.


A little wallpaper, a little contemporary, a little antique and voila!  Her one room condo now lends itself to a work-space, a dining room, a sitting area and of course, a bedroom.  

Pink and Blue and a little chinois - that's what we were hoping to accomplish.  Thanks to Jennifer and you loyal readers for having us and enjoy the rest of the Pink Days!

Thank you so much for putting this together, Bethany! 

Did you see the bedroom Bethany designed for the One Room Challenge?  It's amazing.  It was submitted for a color contest on Apartment Therapy.  Congratulations, Bethany!
