Pretty in Pink

I am feeling the love for pink
Since first visiting the
 Royal Hawaiian in 1978, 
I have had a special place in my heart for this rosy hue. 

It is a particular shade of pink that gets me going. 
 I'm not talking Barbie, it's more Pink which
 has a
 suggestion of coral
The one that looks fabulous with chartreuse,
 palm green and of course, chocolate brown.

  The pink that makes you look well rested. The pink that makes even the most hungover specimen look downright peachy!

This is surely why the Royal Hawaiian Hotel 
in Waikiki and the Beverly Hills Hotel 
chose as their signature colour .... Pink

They knew that after those late night and morning breakfast
 gin fests,
 as legend has it, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton
 needed to look their best whilst basking poolside,

Blogger Blues

Diamond Head

After what can only be described as Blogger Burnout,
 I am back!

It seems like I was not alone. Landing on some favourites and noticing many of my fellow bloggers had also fallen off the sphere.  Blogger fatigue was spreading...... fast!

 I started to think about these wonderful deserted blogscapes floating around cyberspace just waiting for their owners to one day return and breathe new life and inspiration into their virtual spaces. 

Life, work and family commitments just happen leaving you time poor and the last thing one has time for is writing the daily post.

I was extremely naughty and did not even write a 'goodbye for now' post which I noticed many of my fellow 'Professionals'  had done. And for that, I apologise.

I was lucky however, to be busy with work projects and travel to my beloved
  New York, Honolulu and even Melbourne during this time.  These places never fail to inspire.

I look forward to posting more thoughts and inspiration on all things DECORATING.
