Round Robin: Pink'd!

It's Round Robin Photo Challenge time again! Renee of Ode to the Muse came up with the topic this time: "Pink"!

As you folks have probably figured out by now, I like bright colors, especially ones associated with the "fun" version of midcentury modern style. Pink was an important part of the 1950s palette, especially as the color salmon. Oddly, though, Casa Blocher, a.k.a. the Museum of the Weird, doesn't have all that much pink in it. A lot of what it does have, I've shown you before, like the turquoise and salmon sailboat wall decor, and the three color pole lamp, and, goodness knows, our Xavier Cugat painting full of surgeons dressed in pink! Really, though, it's not my favorite color, mostly because of the pink ballerina wallpaper and pink paint I agreed to at age 4 and was stuck with for the next twelve years, back in my bedroom in Manlius.

So what else can I show you? Well, I took pictures of a few buildings, and my pink iPod, and a Funny Face cup, but it wasn't that interesting. So here's what we'll do. We're going to consider the possibility that there isn't enough pink in my life. For example...

What if I took my cue from Barbie, and had a pink house?

What if we redecorated the front room to match the Cugat?

And what if I even had a pink dog?

The three photos that follow were not edited to be more pink.

Now check out everyone else's passels of pink!

My bedroom is pink but I think doing the outside might just overdo it. I love the pink dog, he could come and live with me and laze around on the pink floral doona. Total colour coordination. Cheers Kerrin

Renee said...

How creative! The pink dog was awesome! Loved your photos, I've recently gotten into pink again. Took a few years off the color but suddenly I'm buying pink like mad! LOL

That dog doesn't look too happy to be pink, lol. I love the pink surgeons.
