Dakar Nest: Blue and Pink at Home

Do you have go-to colors in design and/or fashion?

I have always been drawn to various hues of blue and pink, with some purple thrown in for good measure (see: blog design/logo, haha). In high school, my friends teased me for my love of coral... which dominated my wardrobe and accessories (and my prom dress!). I still love coral, but I like to think my taste in color has grown a touch more sophisticated, though probably not by much ;) When shopping for the home or myself, I gravitate towards these tones without even thinking. Although I really do love bold colors in general, I just don't naturally go for natural hues like green, yellow, brown, and orange.

As we work on decorating our new apartment, I really have to stop myself from going ALL BLUE AND PINK. It's a challenge ;) But I'm also listening to my instincts and sticking to what I love most of the time! Case in point, our budding coffee table:

Of course, I've been collecting blue and pink visual inspiration on Pinterest for awhile now. Here's a round up of design inspiration featuring my favorite color combination.

What color combinations are you most drawn to?

  1. I love the blues and coral, and a few punches of emerald greens. Sure your home is going to be beautiful when all is done! I'm also in the process of decorating my new modern-colonial apartment in Phnom Penh Cambodia and your inspiration boards are very helpful :)
