It’s that time again… get ready for a new monthly moodboard, my friends! Perhaps it’s because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, or maybe I’m digging this color because I’ve been attracted to soft, muted hues all winter- either way, dusty pink has been on my radar lately. I know, I know… I say I’m not a “pink type of gal”, but I think I’m beginning to turn a corner and I’ll admit, I really like the muddy tones. It’s not overly pink, it skews a little salmon colored, and isn’t as saturated or bubble gum looking as colors you’d find in a little girl’s room. This is the way I would do pink- dusty, muted, desaturated, edgy, and pretty sophisticated! Click through for the inspiration and to see what I found (and am dreaming of buying myself for V-Day).
Just because I mentioned kids rooms, that’s not to say it isn’t the perfect color for those types of spaces too! Remember the nursery I designed over the summer for our friends (pictured above)? It skews a bit more orange than the dusty pink I’ve been digging, but it’s still a great example of how versatile this desaturated palette can be. Check out the grown up version below by Kate Maloney. It’s perfection!

I came across some seriously beautiful furniture and decor in this palette! Do you have any favorites from this month’s roundup? I think I’m just going to break down and buy the bougainvillea arrangement (#10) for myself this Valentine’s Day. I’ve linked it on the blog about a thousand times (most recently in my faux floral arrangement post). I probably should’ve never returned it, after buying it as an option for our formal living room.
I wasn’t sure if I could get on board with a large upholstered piece, like a sofa or sectional, in this color… BUT the above image totally sold me. I love the way this dusty rose color pairs with wood tones, brown, mustard, and hunter green. I also have to call out the wall panels above the sofa. They remind me a little of the panels I made for our basement media room. I have a feeling we’re going to see more upholstered wall treatments in interior design this year. What do you think?
Whether you’re interested in adding dusty rose to your home in a big or small way- like the bedding and pillow in the above image, I think we can all agree it’s the perfect hue for the season!
Does anyone have a hot date tomorrow for Valentine’s Day? Do you celebrate with friends, your significant other, or not at all? It’s honestly not a big holiday or moment for Emmett and I. We’d rather save for travel. Typically we’ll make a nice dinner at home, rent a movie, and just spend quality time together. However, tomorrow I have friends coming into town and I agreed to teach their kiddos to ski all day, so E & I don’t have any plans as of now. I’m sure I’ll be exhausted. I’m not used to chasing kids around (kudos to the moms out there). Haha! Might I suggest making a Valentine’s charcuterie board if you’re hanging with friends? Or whip up a batch of my favorite chocolate mousse (it’s an old recipe, but a good one). Wine is also a good idea! I’ll definitely be having some of that tomorrow night. Cheers!
