The beauty of Pink Flamingo...

So believe it or not, I decided to pick up my paintbrush again. Even though I spent the better part of the last year painting my house, I can’t seem to completely stop. Last weekend I had to repaint the porch ceiling and the rest of the porch, so I figured I might as well go ahead and paint the great long wall in the living room. 
Yes, I know I just painted it a year ago. But for some reason the last few months I have been thinking it needed to be warmer, brighter. I went through just about every pink paint chip I could get my hands on the last couple of months and then, finally, I found THE ONE, the color I had been looking for and dreaming about: Pink Flamingo.
The photos above show the living room with the accent wall painted in Pink Flamingo. Isn’t it fab? It deepens as the light dwindles and is cheery and warm and welcoming during the day. I just love it.
Here’s the original color on that wall, a much cooler pink:

And here it is now:

It’s much warmer, don’t you think? Lovely and warm and bright ~ it really gives the room the feel I was looking for. And so far, everyone loves it. My friends especially love that I painted part of my living room a color named Pink Flamingo. What do you think?
For those of you who have not seen the rest of the living room, here it is:
