Yes, I am still busy decorating in my mind! We are still looking for out next home but that hasn't stopped me from planning how every room is going to look! This room, my office-parlour-studio, is inspired by the the fabulous wife of President Eisenhower, Mamie. Mamie Eisenhower was the first lady from 1953 to 1961 and pink was Mamie’s favorite color. She wore a pink gown with 2,000 pink rhinestones to Ike’s inauguration (she is pictured in this dress above.) Ike sent her pink flowers every morning (very well trained hubby.) Her bathroom in Gettysburg was pink down to the cotton balls. She re-decorated the private quarters in the White House in pink. So much so that reporters called it the “Pink Palace.” I have been unable to find any pictures of Mamie's decorating. Pink down to the cotton balls would be fabulous to see! Seeing as this room will be for me, I am going to town with the colour pink!
Pretty shade of pink paint by Dulux called "Fairy Wings." Feature wall in Cath Kidston Antique Rose wallpaper.
Gorgeous chandelier from An Enchanted Cottage
Must have pretty craft supplies! The ones below are by Martha Stewart. Fabulous vintage pink typewriter. I would love to have a collection of these. I have seen an aqua one which is just as cool as this.
LCD screen pink tv. I am yet to see these in Australia. The only pink tv's I have seen are your old 34cm type by Hello Kitty or Bratz. Now I can be quite immature some times but a Bratz TV is a little too much.
Pink sateen sofa to snuggle up with boyfriend Ryan, see picture below for your viewing pleasure.
Choices, choices...which rug to roll around with Ryan on? The pretty pink or gorgeous green? Might have to give them both a whirl.
Here is my annoyance at the moment. You can't get an attractive, stylish office chair here in Australia which will suit a vintage style home.
The ones below would be perfect, but of course they are from the US.
I am thinking of trying to make one. You can buy computer chair bases seperately from ikea. Then finding a nice chair, cutting the legs off and attaching the base.
