I read a couple of days ago that PINK ROSE ANYTHING has become difficult to sell and no longer is the rage! Have those of you who either love or make PINK PRETTIES found this to be true? I've read on several designer blogs that Shabby Chic Decor is no longer at the top of the decorating-food-chain and in it's place white and white complements now rule the roost!
I was at TARGET the other day and was shocked to see that Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic Bedding Line had dwindled down to the end of one aisle when it use to take up both sides of the entire thing. Kind of made me sad... Sort of like saying goodbye to a faithful friend~
Although I'm sure there will ALWAYS be room for the lover of Shabby Pink Roses in our world, there seems to be less desire to have them everywhere and it appears their popularity has waned...at least that is how it is here in Oklahoma. I can't give a pink rose teacup or decorative rose plate away although dainty pillows and small hand painted rose complements always sell for me...just not like they once did!
I will always love the shabby pink rose, but these days I favor painting them on weathered signs and such and almost always upon a ground of soft natural white, eggshell or cream... And I almost NEVER paint them on PINK anymore~just too much PINK.
(I'm silently gasping as I type this!)
What do you think? For all of you who have enjoyed the pink-rose-shabby-chic-craze does it still make your heart sing and do you still use it in your decor????
Just curious! Would love to know your opinion!
Love to you...
