Doesn't it just reek Back-To-School-nostalgia?!
For example, I'm definetly digging the cover of the latest issue of House Beautiful:
The room is lathered with 4 different shades of pink, and yet it isn't overwhelming. There's:
1) a "strawberry milkshake" shade in the ottoman
2) a deep coral throw pillow in the corner
3) a collection of hot pink peonies on the mantel
4) and the pink of the framed print, which has a lilac undertone.
So, what exactly makes the room work, without feeling like a Barbie dream house?- The dark brown wallpaper and fabric is very strong and has a masculine tone to ground the pink, and the creamy vanilla accents and mantel subdue the room without appearing too stark (such as a brilliant white would).
Again, this is yet another example of how "there are no bad colors- only bad combinations". And, given the right combination, I'm sure you could get even the manliest man to cave for pink.
