Confession: lately I’ve had to hold myself back from using hot pink in every single inspiration board…my love for the vibrant shade may be a teensy bit out of control right now. So I finally decided to give in and use some of my favorite pins of late to create an energetic, feminine palette that would be perfect inspiration for a January shower or birthday fête. I think this shade would break anyone of the winter doldrums, don’t you? The key here is to use small touches of pink against neutrals for major impact…magenta chairs around a rustic wood table, vintage silverware with colorful dipped edges, a chalkboard menu framed in raspberry…you get the picture. Bonus points if the girly shade is butted up against masculine, rougher textures for my favorite kind of study in contrast.

By the way, I’m in NYC for a couple days of meetings (and shopping, and eating.) Follow me on instagram (camillestyles) if you’d like to keep up with my fun in the city!

    Hi Camille – The color is just gorgeous. Would you mind sharing what program you use for your inspiration boards. The layout is lovely.
