The Top 5 Best Rooms Decorated Around Pink

Penelope Bianchi

Penelope Bianchi’s Soft Pink Home

1. Penelope Bianchi’s Home

Mccormick Interiors featured an interview by House Beautiful with the designer, which shed a bit of light behind the homes wall color:

HB-What color are your exterior walls? They’re so faded and romantic.

Penelope Bianchi- It’s called pink ocher. It’s a pale pink with a bit of yellow in it. The pigments were mined out of the ground in Roussillon. They have little shops there that sell them by the one-pound bag. I bought all the bags in two shops and had them sent home. We put the pigment in the stucco and lime-washed it.

HB And inside?

We put a coat of plaster on the walls and left it unprimed and untreated. Then everything got a coat of lime wash mixed with the same natural pigments in various amounts. I contend there’s a difference between artificial and natural pigments. Natural ones are more beautiful.

2. Buscot Park

Buscot Park is a glorious example of the Regency style. The estate was built by Edward Loveden Loveden between 1779 and 1783 for Edward Loveden Loveden. The house was inspired by the architecture of the great Renaissance architect, Andrea Palladio. Most of the furniture here is of the Regency period, and reflects the revival of interest in that style in the inter-war years.

3. The Dienst Home In Sag Harbor- Featured On Martha Stewart

One of the prettiest homes ever.  In the pink room, gray wainscoting and bare floors soften the vivid color of the walls, which are adorned with an asymmetrical array of small paintings, sea fans, and a framed collection of starfish.

At Martha’s guest cottage in Maine, features an array of blush-colored tones through out her home.  The pictures of this home, are still celebrated around the blogging community. Martha’s antiques throughout this home are spectacular, one showing a gray terrazzo dining table and a set of Italian ring-back chairs.

One of her design tactics was to create a continuous wash of ambient color throughout the guesthouse. The mirror frame above the fireplace, for example, was painted the same pink as the cottage’s walls and trims.

Hints of Patina – To add muted patina to a dining area at the end of her
33-foot-long living room, Bianchi slipcovered antique Italian chairs
with inside-out Fortuny and paired them with a French convent table. The
trumeau mirror reflects its pair, hanging above the fireplace in a
sitting area.
