  1. I love what you’ve done with the accessories in order to make the pink and gold decor shine – but in my opinion, the rug is THE major leader in this pink/gold experiment and for most followers, changing the rug is not something we could afford to do to create this lovely decor.
    You’ve done it beautifully in your home – thank you for your post.

    1. Thank you, Pat! The idea I’m trying to bring across is how to work with what you already have in *your* home and play with accessories to bring out one new decor style or other. The aubusson rug in my home would normally be paired with more sedate old world items, but if I want a trendier look, I can “throw it” with glam accessories. To be honest, this is easier to do when all of your decor is more neutral, but I already have the rug, so I had no choice… 😉 In someone else’s home they might be working around a different type of piece, like a print sofa or a Persian rug, but the idea is the same.

  2. All of these accessories are so beautiful…I would have never guessed they were from Wal-Mart. What a great and inexpensive way to have a little fun in your home decor. Guess I’ll have to give Wal-Mart another look.

    1. It’s an amazing thing, isn’t it? I just love what these big box stores are doing, bringing great style at affordable prices… 🙂

  3. Great tips! I love all the glamour! You are amazing friend!

    the accessories look great, they make the room look softer. Really like what you did.

    1. Thank you, Diane! I like having a wardrobe of things that are easy to change so I can move them around as the mood strikes… 🙂

    Absolutely love your glam! That is how I have decorated my pink spaces and I love it. I have been trying to find an Aubusson rug like yours and cannot find anything any where like it. Any suggestions?

  6. Constance Gagne says:

    Absolutely love your glam pieces, that is how I have decorated my pink and white home. I have not had any luck finding a rug similar to yours though, I have tried your suggestions but nothing will come up. And I have been looking for a while now. I would appreciate any suggestions you have as I am very determined to buy one!

    1. I was looking earlier after the other woman’s comment. Is it more important to you that it’s an aubusson, or that it has the pink coloration? I saw some pretty inexpensive one which great pink color, but they were not aubusson or needlepoint. They were more like Persian rugs.

      1. Constance Gagne says:

        Oh it can be made out of anything! I just love the hot pink in it and the lovely antique style. If you can send me a link to something that would be fantastic. I have looked on the Internet for ages.

  7. Well you KNOW that I love pink. Will have to give Walmart another look!

  8. Look beautiful!! Years ago, pink amd gold were part of the renewal of Victorian style..

  9. So very pretty! I do like the way you toned down the traditional look. I waver between styles too. 🙂 You did a nice job of transitioning and your choices were great! Wal Mart is offering some great options.

    Gosh, I missed this post! Glad I was looking back over my emails! I love cloches and you have a big one hidding under that end table! What are you planning for it? Love it! I think the copper tray gives an almost rose gold appearance and looks splendid with the gold tray along side of it. You have put together a great combination of old world and new. XOXO

    1. Haha, I just put it there to move it out of the way… lol! Haven’t decided yet… 😉 I think it’s one of those things that will move around the house every so often.

  11. If you got the couch from Wayfair, what cover is that? Is it matlaise was it a special order? I love it but can I order it?

  12. Lory — Have you seen the latest issue of Milieu Magazine? The cover is oh so pink and there’s more inside.

  13. I’m a pink girl, too! These are great tips. I have a question. I’ve been a subscriber for a long time and am curious about what type of house you live in. I live in a MC ranch, but don’t like mid-century style so I’ve leaned into ranch, French, and Swedish design.

  14. What a wonderful array of colors.
    Your decorating skills are the best!
    Thank you for sharing.

  15. Your room is so pretty! I like the pink and white decor!

  16. Hi Laurie,
    I’m in the market for a new sofa. Can you tell me where you purchased the sofa that’s pictured with the white vase of tulips which is entitled Stay Connected?
    I’m still loving my kitchen where I used yours for inspiration.

    1. Yes, sure. That’s the PB comfort sectional from Pottery Barn. It’s linked in all of my posts in the family room, or just look under my home tour… 🙂

  17. Do you remember where you bought the small pink roses that are in the photo with the framed family photos? They are so pretty!

  18. I love pink. Changes my living room with pink accents last year as well. Just bought new pink throws. Thanks for sharing!

  19. I would very much like to know where you got that sofa with the textured fabric… is that a slipcovered sofa?

    1. That sofa was from Ethan Allen many years ago. It is not slipcovered. It’s a matelasse fabric that was custom upholstered.

    In my remodel I stayed with my fav soft pinks ( not yellow based!), teals, greens and whites. All rooms got four wall repapering/borders, chandeliers, new velvet sofas , hand crafted backsplash in teal mermaid tail tiles, lots of quilts and pillows to switch when the mood strikes, yummy soft throws, chairs in several styles but always my fav colors ( including a reindeer slipper chair for fun!), maximalist, romantic, electric, elegant, whimsical ME! I get raves and entertain a lot more now.
