eye candy – for the love of pink

I was born into a family of three girls.  As fate would have it, I am now a mama to three boys.

So, every now and then I just NEED to indulge my inner girly-ness and covet pretty little girls’ rooms, spaces and stuff!

Check out my latest finds;

Clockwise from top left:

Pretty as a lolly pink picture – loving the painted wardrobe and iron bed (courtesy canadian family)

Girly with a touch of bohemian and retro – that’s what I call eclectic! (courtesy of the boo and the boy 

Hola! I love, love, love the mexican throw with embroidered pink bunnies and, gasp, all that storage (courtesy of heather wilson)

Dotty – you may have already noticed, but I love a spot, a circle, a polka dot … so had to include this fab chair! (courtesy of chic cheap nursery)

Now, I know not every girl’s room has to be pink.  But this is a start.  I’ll be back again with some not-so-pink options later!
