I'm continuously adding images to my "All About Pink" Pinterest board with rooms decorated with paint, fabric and wallpaper all in various tones of pink. It's surprising how often pink is used in design, and not in the bright bubble-gum shade little girls' rooms are decorated with.

Just check out my Instagram of the sophisticated dining room ceiling Stacey Smithers and I painted in Farrow & Ball's Calamine for the H&H November 2013 issue.

I'm always trying to add pink into our house, especially since I live with three boys. Even though I knew the answer, I asked my husband earlier this year whether I could paint our hallway the new Farrow & Ball Nancy's Blushes paint colour shown above. Unfortunately, it hasn't happened (yet!), but I'm working on other ways of adding pink. Here are a few inspirational images. 

This particular shot was on the cover of Domino. The classic La Fiorentina fabric by David Hicks on the sofa is absolutely stunning.

I love how Carolina Herrara Baez has painted the hall outside her dining room with a lovely shade of pink.

If the room painted black wasn't enough, then the designer added a beautiful pink mohair sofa. 

Both these images have been pinned on my bulletin board in my office for some time. Not only for the palettes, but also the stunning tufted sofas. 

Whether in Palm Beach or a quaint row house in England, painting your front door any of these shades of pink is a great option.

Finally, this past weekend I was running some errands and came across the most beautiful pink pumpkins. I Instagramed a shot of the pumpkins and it created quite the response. I felt purchasing the pumpkins would mean the end of summer and fall would instantly arrive. However, they would look pretty sitting on my front steps.
