I sometimes get inspiration from the most banal things. The other morning, while wiping down the cabinets in the bathroom, I noticed that a tiny bit of the white paint had worn away over the years. There was an inch-long patch of pink barely visible. I momentarily considered the possibility of repainting the cabinets pink, but quickly nixed the idea. A large presence of pink in the bathroom just seems wrong-headed. I’d get tired of it rather quickly.
In my opinion, pink is a color to be used sparingly, more as an accent–such as with flower projects. So, I hunted for pink blooms to place in contrasting green pottery and I was off and running.
