Pink Tartan pink jumpsuit

Ugh, winter. That's all there is left to say about how grey and long this winter has been. But....the great news is that it's almost over!!! And the even better news is that Pink Tartan has the most unbelievable Spring lineup, and we're dying to pick it up at their new flagship location. Nothing makes me happier than the thought of warm Spring days, light jackets, and open toed shoes. Not to mention that I am over the moon that colour is IN this Spring. I love colour! Pinks, oranges, purples, blues....oh, bliss. On my list of Pink Tartan favourites this Spring: - super fun pink jumpsuit (above) - romantic and strong yellow dress (below) - bright short shorts (second below)

Daring Decorating with Colour: Hot Pink!

For every girl that's ever dreamed of living with bright colours and bold design this one's for you. Take the chance and make your dream place become a reality!

My wall before the colour explosion

My wall before the colour explosion



Like most girls I had a dream apartment in my mind, but just couldn't make it happen. Partly because I doubted that it would work out - would hot pink really look good? What if I hated it as soon as I saw it on my walls? Doubt crept in and every time I thought of painting I reconsidered. But also, the amount of work required to fix my apartment and decorate it just like I wanted seemed so huge and impossible. How long would it take? Would I be living in a construction zone for months? And then of course the cost was another factor. How much would it cost? Could I afford it? Was there a less expensive way to do it? In the beginning the plan was to hire a painter. But then my fiance (then boyfriend) told me that painters could be pricey and they wouldn't care as much as I did about the little details. And then he offered to help me paint. So we bought all the supplies and got down to some serious work.

The first strokes - it's too late to turn back now!

The first pink coat looked amazing, but another coat was needed. The second was also great, but just not as hot as I wanted. So a third coat was put on...and it looked terrible! We used a tool that wasn't meant to paint a full wall, and there were streaks and stripes everywhere. I tried to pretend it didn't bother me, but I couldn't hide it - the wall was going to make me crazy unless it was fixed.

Applying the finishing touches - again!

So we headed back to the hardware store and got more paint to cover up the last coat. We spent a few hours painting and then let it dry...only to notice the new coat didn't match the earlier ones. The earlier coats were from paint bought at a hardware store by my office, and the last can was from the store close to my home. And they weren't the same colour (I learned the hard way to make sure you buy all your paint from the same store!) So we headed back to the store by my office and picked up another can of paint. And after this coat I had the perfect pink wall!

The finished wall with decorative touches - a mini pink palace!
