Wink of Pink # 9 – Avec le Noir

Wink of Pink # 9 – Avec le Noir

Pink and black…a brave combo this is not always the easiest to execute.
If the pink leans a little too fuchsia and the black is a little too ornate/baroque in it’s application, things start looking a little garish.
Having said that, done with a light hand, this union can be quite special.

pink and oh so chic

Based on the appearance of my blog, clearly this is a combo I think can be quite fabulous.
Just make sure you do it right;)

    I love this combo when the pink has some yellow in it, and it is softened. If only my mister would agree to pink 🙂

    Nothing but pure loveliness all around!! Pink is so beautiful, and black just adds to the drama. You must be excited that Honeysuckle is the it color this year!! I am too 🙂 PS. I do use Photoshop for my editing, I just insert text boxes with whatever font I want (You can drag the text box layer around as well) and I use the connector shapes tool to draw dotted lines etc.

    Ok. I have a few pink shirts. Thats about the extent to my pink. But if those dining chairs were a little darker…like black or grey…I could have them in my space.

    Thanks so much for posting this.
