That color right there in that short video is PINK. Yes, I’m yelling PINK. It is bright. It is cloying. It has purple undertones. It is bright. It is…very, very PINK.
Hope is going to love it.
Grammy fretted that her worst fear was that the pink was going to come out Pepto Bismal pink. I was not worried about that; I love color and have come to realize that there are shades worse than Pepto pink. This pink is bright, but in its own way charming.
It’s like the paint version of Hope. It’s sweet, yet sassy. Bold but sensitive (when accented). It’s feminine with a pop of bubble gum. It’s fun but deliberate in a way that says “I know what I want because I chose this bright arse, almost assaulting light fuchsia paint to put on the walls.”
I love it not because I like the color (truth be told I kinda hate it but it’s growing on me); I love it because Hope chose it, and it is the base of my decorating vision for her forever room (or at least it will probably be decorated this way for a couple of years. Hope stays, that paint is on borrowed time!).

I love this room. It reminds me of the bathroom I painted for my daughter (it’s not the one hubby and I use). I bought some towels online and they turned out to be the wrong bright pink. The other stuff was a different pink, including a picture she wanted on the wall. So I painted stripes in the two pinks (being a bathroom it was less work than a bedroom haha). One of the pinks is the same depth of color of Hope’s room. The room feels so warm and comfy inside because of the deep pink.

Thanks so much for the read! I have to admit it was pretty bright when I saw the finished product. Now that it’s been a week, I’ve gotten used to it; I’m starting to pull in the other colors on our mutually agreed upon palette–blue, purple and yellow. It’s turning into a really fun room. 🙂
