I loved this article by Rita Konig in the WSJ magazine on Luke Irwin who designs the beautiful rugs in the second photo. Also loving the mish mash china from his house. And lastly, I am loving the pink walls and mix of color in this room from Ben Pentreath. All super inspirational for my apartment project!

i’ve loved pink walls ever since i went to a party–years ago–at this old, georgian-style house in baton rouge. it had all the typical white molding, fireplaces and such set against against pale pink walls. it was so elegant and surprisingly not overly girlie. (it was especially pretty by candlelight too.) plus, one of the bedrooms was painted a much deeper rose, also really gorgeous. not sure what my husband would think about pink walls though. you should totally do it! 🙂
love all that china and the raw shelving!! perfect cottage love!!
I had walls that color in the bedroom of one of my old apartments. I loved it. So pretty and flattering and surprisingly subtle. All these images are so inspirational, btw!
This is really inspirational,amazing rugs and Ben Pentreath’s work is admirable,those colors are complementing each other very well.Thank you for sharing such a great and valuable stuff with us.
Good Luck and God Bless!!
I love pink walls so much, we painted the exterior of our house pink!
So great to see pink looking so sophisticated. Thank you for the inspiration!!
I’m loving this post. The fireplace in the last photo is lovely! I just shared this on Twitter for you. My readers would love it too!
the colors and patterns are incredible. It would be hard not to feel happy living around that.
pink walls and built in bookshelves! and the rug colors are gorgeous. our new place has old wood floors that need huge area rugs.
this is bold! I definitely struggle to combine color this freely – I end up being so “matchy matchy” because I’m afraid of things looking like a circus. Great inspiration post, Chelsea.
Those rugs are beyond gorgeous! Heading over to read the article now, thanks!
