cottage sisters...the pink rooms

Are you back for more?  If you've loved it to this point, you won't be disappointed today...

One of the things I admire most about Shelly is her ability to blend it all together and have it make sense in the end.  She is very comfortable in her decorating skin.  If she loves it...she finds a place for it...
She doesn't play by any decorating rules and is not afraid to have half of her house vintage red and the other half shabby pink.  I think what helps make this work is the fact that a neutral hallway separates the two styles.

Okay, enough chit, chat...let's get this show on the road...

I promised you pink...


This is the princess guest room...



You can see why this is a favorite destination for her granddaughter...




On to the master bedroom...


Against every ones belief, she had her husband paint the cherry wood furniture white.
The white works in here...


Isn't this the prettiest lamp?




A great place for a nice relaxing cup of tea...


and a few pictures of the guest bathroom...








Well, there you have it...

Thanks for joining me all three days...
I know she's gotten a kick out of reading all your comments.  Can you believe she didn't think you would?

One last photo to leave you with...



This just about says it all.

Blessings,
Patty

Green and pink is such a fresh combination. My mom would love to have her whole house outfitted like this :D I love to admire the pictures but I couldn't live in the spaces, a bit TOO pink

So feminine and pretty. What girl wouldn't love coming in to visit and stay for a couple of hours just browsing at all the pretties and decorating skills going on there?!!!! And I'm sure a little girl would feel like a princess for sure! :-)
