What Do You Think?

Hi Everyone!!!

Yep! These are the two colors I have picked out for My Pink Loft. What do you think? The darker pink will be only on one accent wall and then the lighter pink will be on the other 3 walls. I am going to use an accent color, too. I start painting My Pink Loft in the morning!!! Isn't it going to be soooo bright and happy???? Now My Pink Expression will have a place to live!!!

  3. See if you can match the pink on the Expression. What accent color are you going to use. Don't dress in pink or we won't be able to see you. LOL

  4. Are you a cool pink girl or a warm pink girl? Both colors are really pretty but the light seems on the cool side to me.

    For me the darker pink would need to go on the wall that I look at but I LIKE color. Lots of color.

  8. What about if you paint in 3 shades of pink? It can be in layers. So, the top 1/3 will be in light pink, the middle darker pink, and the bottom color will be the darkest pink? I think that would be so cool. This way you could enjoy all colors all the time!

  9. Looks great, I was thinking like Betty, are you still thinking polka dots? Brown is also a nice accent color too, if you need to throw something in the mix to break it up a little. I love brown and pink together.

  10. jmcstamper has a good idea! I would second that. Personally I am more of a 'blue' color person, but I would probably do the different shades and enjoy several of them at one time.

  12. I love that dark pink, I'm sure it will be bright alot brighter once you get it on the wall...My little sister painted her room a color like that, and her room literally glows! But she loves it, I'm sure it will look great, can't wait to see the finished product!

  25. I love the lighter pink, not a fan of the darker one myself, but it will suit The Pink Loft! And I'm still so jealous about your Pink Expression! Have fun painting!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love it. You should paint some polka dots or something!

    I really like the lighter Pink... I think it's pretty...but the darker pink will go nicely as you stated as the accent color... Try not to wear to much pink when you do your videos or we won't know where you are in the room! LOL I know painting can be fun but it can also be a pain...try and have fun with it..You'll be proud once it's all done! Have a great day!

  29. Very cute I am always a fan of chocolate brown with pink but that only would work if it was just window frames and such. But I love the main colors!

  30. I like the colors. Can't wait to see your New Pink Loft.

  31. I think it's going to be fabulous Robyn. I also love your pink Expression -- this is silly, but I really like the pink clear cover best of all. You must be enjoying it so much. Have fun painting!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am sure your "pink cricut" (which I am so jealous of) is going to love it's new home.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Cute! Even though I'm not actually a huge pink fan -- *gasp* -- I think pink and brown are a classy combo. I've also started pairing yellow with pink lately, instead of the oh-so-popular lime green. I think it's super cute and fresh... maybe you might like it? Give it a whirl. What could it hurt?

  34. If you're happy with it, that's what matters!
    Just some food for thought...what about the colors done in stripes down the wall....one thick section then a thinner?

    ENJOY whatever you do and can't wait to see how it turns out!

  35. Hi Robyn,

    Liking the new colors very much. I can't wait to see the end result. Please give us a full tour when you are done.

  44. Robyn,

    Great choices!! i would totally go for those colors, and i think the accent wall is a total thumbs up, i love accent walls!

    have fun!

  45. I can't wait to see how it turns out! By the way the tables you have Sam's club also have them in white, if you are thinking renewing your whole room, Ikea is also a great place very ship and practical. I simply alos love Pink and Lime Green.
    Have Fun!

  46. ooooohhhh cant wait to see the final product!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love it! The lighter pink will really make it look bright and the darker one is a gorgeous accent to it! Adding a little fun. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great! You should paint everything light pink and dark pink polkadots!

  49. You can always use the cricut green for your accent color. I love pink and green together. It's going to be great!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have those exact colors in my spare bedroom. I did the accent wall in the dark pink and then "bagged" the light pink over it....it's VERY bright and VERY girlie. If you want to make a BOLD pink statement, this will sure do the trick.

    Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You'll have to post pictures ... my 5 year old is a "pink" lover too, we're driving to the craft store today and she tells me she thinks everything should be pink, the cars, the houses the clouds in the sky everything! Now mind you she just turned 5 on august 6th so how far do you think that imagination is going to take her????

    ReplyDelete
  52. The dark pink ;-) Good luck with your new room :-)

    ReplyDelete
  53. GREAT COLOURS!!! i'm sooo jalous!! My room (soon to be) is our ex-laundry room, and it's just badly covered with wallpapers which was white someday...but we don't wanna paint or anything because we'll be moving within 2 years...so why bother...

    But i put accents in the room (red, white and black mostly) with shelfs etc...

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think your loft will be heaven to work in you are on "a pink cloud"as we say here in Holland

    ReplyDelete
  55. Use them both...one as an accent.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love your colors they are SOOOOO
    You.
    Love the new pink cricut but I just got mine in DEC so not feasible to get a new one hope they come out with the new cartrige. Its jus not fair :(

    Nice colors, have fun can't wait to see it finished. Congrates on the pink cricut, I didn't even know they made one like that.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Can't wait to see the finished results. Cool shades of pinks! Mine would be shades of purple.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am sure what ever you decide to do it will be great! You always have such a knack for color. If I were doing those colors....I believe I would paint all the walls the lighter pink and then do a nice 6-8 inch stripe around the top dropped down from the ceiling about 12" and write inspirational or family says all around it. Can't wait to see the results, though!

  62. You have done some really cute cards that combine pink and green, (My fabulous friend)if you are still looking for an accent color. I love the card you posted on June 7th with the strawberries that had a green and yellow background that would give you even more accent options. The white trim on the card really pops the colors, and you could do the same with white woodwork. Just a thought!! (I always use cards or a piece of artwork for my color inspirations in my rooms.)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see pics of the finished room! I've been praying that you do well in your marathon. I just finished my first one on August 1st. I had set a goal of 5:30 and finished it in 5:34 so not too bad for an old lady. You will do much better, I'm sure!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Most pastels intensify when you have it on all the walls. You might want to go ONE shade lighter on the lighter pink, and it will look like your sample. The darker pink is going to reflect its "pinkness" back on the other lighter walls. Pastels always look more vivid when there is a lot of it. Just a suggestion so your hard work results in a nice pink and not bazooka bubble gum, unless um, you wanted that, in which case I will shut up :)

  67. I think you will surely be "in the pink" in the pink loft! I know, bad pun, but I haven't been up long and my brain isn't working very well yet.

  68. Accent color in lime green with the darker pink would be cute and also tie in the Cricut color.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am so jealous that you will have a room dedicated for crafts. I have my craft supplies (a whole lot!) spread out in several areas. One day! I love the color combinations.

  70. Have fun painting, the colors look great, the color pink is said to to be soothing and give a lot of love to a room. POWER to you pink stamper.

  73. Hi Robyn,
    Have fun painting your space! I'd use the pale pink on all walls. Since I love decorative painting, I would then copy onto one wall the design you had made for the top of your blog (using the dark pink, brown & green)with you, your Cricut & blog name. How cute would that be...and a great background for your future videos that we all look forward to!!!

  79. Love the pink!! I just watched one of your last videos about using your favorite things...love it! I wonder if you could tell me what the piano music is that you use at the end of that video? It is amazing :O)

  80. Love it! I can't wait to see it. You will have to make a new craft room video when it is all done! I am getting my own scraproom when we move into the new house and I am beyond excited. Mine is going to be my favorite color green but a very light lettuce color broght and cheerful! Can't wait! Have fun getting all painty!

  82. My sister and I grew up sharing a room. My dad through it was great in the 70's to paint our room hot pink. He buildt shelves on one wall and each inside of the shelves was painted a different color - wish I had a picture - it would blow us away today. After a while you never notice the bright color - you eye gets used to it being there. GO FOR IT. HAVE A BLAST. Maureen

  84. Hi Robyn,

    Like you, I too LOVE pink! All my friends make fun of me but I don't mind! When I was a little girl I made my mom buy pink paint for my room. It was called "Cotton Candy". I loved it! I like the idea about adding some poka-dots to the darker pink wall with the lighter color pink! That would really jazz it up! I just may take a trip to the local hardware store and choose my very own cotton candy color for my craft room! Thanks for sharing with us and good luck with painting!

  92. I love jmcstamper's tri-color idea. You could do it horizontally as she mentioned if you want to expand the width of the room or vertically (which I have done). If you do it vertically you could make 2 of the colors the same width with the 3rd color a smaller width. The vertical stripes done this way take lots more taping than the horizontal ones; but, they are very effective. If you do the horizontal stripes I would make the bottom, darker stripe taller than the other 2 stripes. Some random brown polkadots (cut from vinyl with your new pink cricut) would be cute done on the middle stripe. (Whatever you do will be darling. I can hardly wait to see the video post on your new room.)

  98. I like the darker pink more than the lighter one, but I'm more of a bold, bright, in your face kinda girl when it comes to color. One day when I mangage to get my own scraproom and it isn't combined with my bedroom I am going to paint it in the colors on your blog. Bright pink, lime green, and accent with brown. I love that color combination!!! I'm sure your pink loft will be perfect though and I can't wait to enjoy it with you through all your fantastic videos.

  100. I'm another lover of the color "pink" and although I didn't paint my walls pink in my scraproom, I have tons of pink accents. So many, in fact, that my granddaughter calls it "the pink room." I painted my walls a beautiful color green...not lime but it goes really well with all the pink accents. I also use black as another accent rather than brown. I just like the look of pink/green/black. I love my room and can't wait to see you room when it's all finished!
    Have fun!

  101. Hi Robyn,

    My ¨LOFT¨ is a cheery shade of yellow. My favorite flower is the Daisy so of course there are alot of those around. I can't use my favorite color for my room because it's Red and that would be just too dark! All that said, you have to show us a video of ¨YOUR LOFT¨ once it's all put back together! Can't wait to see it!
    Have a great day!
