Colour Trend: Blush Pink

When I was shopping yesterday I noticed that the colour pink is everywhere.  Both in new spring fashions and home decor.  This pink is not your Barbie pink or Fuschia.  It is not Pantone Colour of the year, Honeysuckle.  It is a beautiful sophisticated blush pink that is falling right in trend with the spring 2011 'Nude' trend.  Here are some inspirational pictures of interiors and home decorating items that I found.  Enjoy!!

Pink Ghost Chair

Ikea Lack Side table

Maisons du Monde pink Louis XVI chair

Pier One Pillows

Pink Sand Beach Bahamas

I'm absolutely loving this colour for interiors.  This pink looks very contemporary with grey and beige tones.  What do you think about this colour?  Pink decor:  Would you use it in your own home???

DIY Website: GMC Trade Secrets

I just discovered this DIY home decor, home improvement, cooking and family life website yesterday!!  I just couldn't wait to pass this on to you .  Its GMC Trade Secrets. Yes that's right!  GMC as in General Motors Company!!  Who knew they did more than manufacture vehicles??  Nope not me - until now!  Their website is filled with tons of great advice.  This is what their website offers:

"We start with three top pros in cooking, home decorating and home improvement. All willing to share extraordinary insights and trade secrets with you. Then we back them with GMC's own professional grade lineup to help. The results? Smart, innovative and brilliantly simple do-it-yourself projects. See for yourself. Tap into GMC Trade Secrets."

Two of the GMC professionals are Kristan Cunningham from  'Design on a Dime' (luuuv her!!)

 and Eric Stromer (what a cutie!) from 'Clean Sweep' and 'Trading Spaces'.

I particularly like this simple Fabric Headboard video with Kelly Edwards (from Design on a Dime as well).

Take a peek at all of GMC's fabulous projects!  Are there some that you would like to try??
