Not Playing it Safe--Hot Pink

Hi gang.

I thought you might enjoy seeing my master bedroom sitting area. This room has been waiting for me to do something with it and I finally did! I won't call it done yet since I still need some pillows, and I'm replacing that table with reupholstered metal faux bamboo X stools I found on CL. I'm reupholstering them in hot pink animal skin fabric that is gorgeous.

I was going to order a hot pink velvet sofa, but ended up finding this one for $2400 less from HG. I think the wall color and accessories will do the trick. I need to find some way to bring this hot pink/raspberry into the other part of the suite. I'm working on it.

This all goes back to my philosophy, that more people are disappointed who go with the "safe" choice than those that follow their gut and try what they really want.

Enjoy!

PS--I've already changed out some things since I took this pic the other day! Grass does not grow under my feet.

I smiled when I saw this post. LOVE the color and texture of the pillows against the gray. OT a tad but for some reason, it really tickles me how much your DH enjoys your projects.

You're always sure to inspire! Looks like a magazine. You had one of my most favorite kitchens ever!

Oh, thanks, I was hoping you guys would like to see the latest home project here.

anele, I really don't want to play things too safe, I mean how does that make you grow, right? In fact I have a client right now who is so inspired to finally step outside her comfort zone she said she is ready to do something in hot pink after seeing my room! I never want to go too "unsafe" and make it look crazy, so I think it's a fine line.

kswl, well, of course it has already been accessorized! I'll grab another picture.

leemiller, the endtables are ones I had used in my old house for nightstands, nothing fabulous, just from HG. In fact, I've re-zhushed them already, putting them both on the right side, back to back to make a larger surface, and inserted a mirrored side table I had on the left side of the sofa.

oldbat2be, my DH goes into these projects with a slightly whiney voice usually, but I just get 'er done when he's out of the house. Then it's not too painful for him. He is really holding firm on not painting anything else in this color though. Even though I "need" paint more of it somewhere. (and you know I will.....)

romy & mtn, you got it, my fav Veuve Cliquot. I used it as a prop in my show house room, one day it will be consumed, but until then....I just love the color and using it as decor.

thanks sheesh!

Foxes, you are too sweet. thank you.

Ok, here is the room as it sits right now. See the fabrics? I'm thinking about pillows in the two that are propped up on the square ones, and the one on the cocktail table is going to be for the X benches. I'll post pics in a couple of entries. I have no idea how to access my photobucket account anymore!

RE: Not Playing it Safe--Hot Pink - more pics

Even though the green works with the pink, I will probably change those pillows too.

Here is the fabric for the X benches that I might use instead of the cocktail table. If not, they will be used at the bottom of the bed to help bring the pink over there.

One more overall shot, from an angle, and then, I promise not to bore you anymore!

Bee, I just love it! You never fail to deliver with your color inspirations. I kinda liked those green fluffy pillows in the first photo as accents. Great texture.
