Look! Pink Kitchen

We must have pink on the brain here in LA. But we just couldn’t resist this Valentine’s Day palette we saw on Marie Claire Maison. We’ve never had the guts to go pink, always fearing it would be too little girl….

Plus we tend to favor cooler tones of blue and green on our walls. But this kitchen made us do a doubletake.

With dark red accents, a hint of blue and some orange accessories, we’re struck by how decidedly un-little-girl the pink feels. And there’s no better way to warm up our unnaturally cold apartment (never a north facing apartment again!) than with these warm inviting tones.

What do you think? Would you consider a pink palette like this? Have you taken a risk on a color you weren’t sure about only to be thrilled with the outcome? What’s the biggest risk you’ve taken? Worst disaster?
