Pink + Toile = Heaven

Pink + Toile = Heaven. I think that's going to be the name of my autobiography. Or the home decorating book I write.
No one would ever accuse me of being religious, but I do believe that beauty is actually goodness and the Divine's light. Embracing beauty is really embracing yourself, your tastes – and putting them on display for the world to appreciate. It's also leaving the world just a little bit better than you found it – and in the process showing gratitude to the Universe.
In my case, embracing beauty is painting the world pink. Well, as pink as possible while still maintaining a modicum of good taste. :) Add a little toile and you've got perfection. Pink is such a happy color; it just speaks to my soul. And toile is beautiful and classic and comfortable and the many different patterns all tell different stories, which I love. I personally believe the world could use a little more happiness and class and comfort, so it's important to me to try and bring those things to my little corner of the world.
I realize that everyone has a different idea of what's beautiful when it comes to decorating. I'm curious: What would equal heaven for you? No matter what it is, embrace it, share it – and the Universe will thank you.

I am in LOVE with this bed. I've always wanted a four-poster and I love the toile curtains and coverlet. Now all I have to do is convince my significant other that pink in the living room and the bedroom isn't too much to ask of him. :)

Early readers of my blog will know I have a thing for dishes. I have always avoided the red/pink transferware, thinking there could possibly be such a thing as too much pink, but after seeing this table, I wonder how I could ever have thought that. Maybe I'll just start with a tea set...
I love ribbon boards and this is one of my favorite toile patterns.
