Right now, I'm thinking pink. Maybe it's because spring is in the air and it feels fresh and lively after the crazy winter weather. I'm noticing shades of pink in nature, taking inspiration from food and loving it in small hits as an accent colour for summer decorating (goodbye blue and white, hello pink).

In actress Lea Michele's home, the hits of pink feel feminine yet modern. Graphic pink and black cushions pop on a white slipcovered sofa, and nothing beats pink peonies or hydrangeas.

I love everything John Robshaw, but I'm particularly fond of these pink and white block prints from his fabric collection. So fun for drapes, cushions or table linens.

Pink and blue works for me but the shades need to be deep enough. Baby pastels are passé.

Nature's pinks are the best, and fruit tree blossoms like cherry and crab apple trees are so inspiring.

I love the dark pink colour of this mousse paired with the black of the berries — pink and black is a great colour combo. Think dark pink walls with a glossy black door.

See our Decorating With Pink photo gallery for more inspiration.
