Do you ever get ideas that seem to come to you from nowhere? I don't believe in coincidences, so when these ideas appear to me "out of the blue," I embrace them. I consider them a form of creative intuition. However, my latest epiphany left me scratching my head: re-decorate the balcony with PINK. Now, I'm not an anti-pinkite. Pink just isn't a color that strongly appeals to me. So when this idea came to me, I was skeptical. I decided to entertain the idea and see how I could make this work. Read along to see what decor items I'm using for inspiration and some of the accessories I will include in my balcony makeover.

I knew if I were to make this pink balcony fabulous, it would have to done in the perfect shades of pink that I will enjoy and that will complement the brick exterior of my building. This is where I had another creative vision: flamingos.

No, I’m not going to decorate my balcony with those ubiquitous lawn ornaments. I’m using the real version as inspiration. If you observe the colors present in flamingos, you will find warm shades of pink like coral and salmon. This insight wasn’t much of a surprise since I loved flamingos as a child.

To keep the decor scheme from being too “matchy”, I will also decorate with a light rose, red and terra cotta. The furniture will be in white and black. I will be sewing up some patio cushions in duck cloth for the new chairs I purchased.

Style-wise, I’m referencing a combination of tropical and Moroccan. These styles will be incorporated through the use of bamboo, lanterns, and quatrefoil.

As for my container garden, I’m still deciding upon what plants to include, but do have some ideas. I will be using some tried-and-true plants like the Boston Fern and would like to try a potted Majesty Palm houseplant on the balcony. This would add to the tropical vibe of the space.

Have you ever experienced a creative intuition or vision? Do you like pink? What’s your favorite shade of pink? Have you decorated with pink?

Thanks for visiting! Let’s stay connected!
