Think Pink (With Mustard Yellow!)

My mom has this uncanny ability to investigate a pile of vintage goods (sometimes even just a heap of junk) and pluck out the most amazing items.  While she was visiting we went to a flea market and she found this gorgeous vintage ochre, pink, cream and black tablecloth.  If it wasn't a square, I'd be blogging about how great it looks in my house.  (Why the heck are both our kitchen and dining tables round?  Whose idea was that?!?) 

So now she's got me hooked on another colour palette (remember the yellow & grey obsession?) and I'd like to incorporate this colour combo into my house.  I can't make it work.  But my mom is slowly directing her kitchen toward a subtle pink and yellow scheme, starting with the vintage pink Pyrex bowls she bought, and my only consolation is that, at some point, I will visit her and bask in the loveliness.

The perfect shades of mustard yellow and vintage-y pink.

The tablecloth reminds me so much of this table setting.




  1. I am really in love with this color combo!

  2. Really love this color combination. Great inspiration and great blog. So glad you commented on mine so I could find you!

  3. I'm a bit obsessed with this palette. I also love it when you throw in a royal blue with it. That tablecloth is stunning.

  4. This is one of my favorite color combinations!! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Love your DIY posts. :)

  5. oh, these photos are so pretty & inspiring!
    & thanks for visiting my blog! so happy to make new blog friends! :)

  6. Pink and yellow are a beautiful combo!

  7. That's a great find. I'm usually not much of a pink girl, but I'd definitely use that combination in my home! The yellow and black make it just un-girly enough to suit me.

  8. You're right Dana. The pink definitely plays second fiddle to that mustard yellow. I think that's what keeps it from looking nursery-ish or eastery-ish.
