Guest Post: My Old Country House!!!


Lesli from My Old Country House is brand spankin' new bloggy buddy for me, we actually "met" through the Roomspiration Blog hop and I was just in awe of her absolutely *lovely* rooms for her kiddos! She is such a sweetheart and agreed to share it's fantasticness with you all today!

I am so excited and thrilled and Honored to have been asked
 to Guest Post on...All Things Bright and Beautiful Blog
I met Aubrey recently through her blog 
and right away we clicked. It is obvious to me
that this is the beginning of a 
Great Friendship.
 Aren't Blog friends awesome!

I think the clincher in my instant adoration of Aubrey was the  
SECOND her Blog Header 
and the ADORABLE Navy and Pink Graphics appeared. 

It is a widely known fact that I am a
 Pink-a Holic.

This recent blog post of mine
featuring my newly transformed Pink Cabinet
and my Chevron Sofa
and my Missoni treats...

this post brought in more reads and comments 
than my new little blog had ever seen! 
(well, that and the  Missoni madness!)

I love Pink... with everything. 

Material Girls
...and brown  
Jonathan Berger

Hot Pink

Jonathan Berger in House Beautiful

Pastel Pink

Patricia Gray...and Pink and Gray!

Pink and Brown

and White.
Premier Fabrics

..white...lots of white.

....look how that small Dash of Aqua  and the wood table,
 keeps it real and
calms it down just enough
...I LOVE this room!

Trina Turk

and Green 

I ADORE this sofa...ADORE!!!

and Don't get me started on Pink and Black.
...and Aqua...oh my.
Comfy Haven

Oh My. 
and then... there is...
Pink and Navy.

When I discovered the combination 
of Navy AND Pink 
... it was like when Peanut Butter and Chocolate first met -
a Match made in heaven!!!

It was this room by one of my favorite Designers
Mary McDonald, 
which inspired my Daughter's Room Makeover.

Phoebe's Room makeover
Wall: Benjamin Moore DownPour Blue

Tobi Fairley Gets me!!!

Lillies and Luxe- a little goes along way....

Sometimes people are afraid of pink.
 The femininity, the girly factor, scares some folks off. 
But Pink, done done right is nothing but CLASSY!
and can totally MAKE a room!!!

There you have it. 
I could go on forever. and I get weak in the knees
when I spy another New Room done right with dash of pink
or a splash of pink...
or Pink out the wazoo!

Thank you Aubrey for inviting me to Guest Host 
your Lovely Blog.

I was always a fan of pastel/baby pink. I never thought hot pink could be so beautiful till I came across these pictures.
