Pretty in Pink: Inés de la Fressange

While perusing The Selby archives last night I came across these photos of Inés de la Fressange and was instantly reminded how much I love the unabashedly feminine bright pink walls in her Paris home.  Painted in Sèveres pink, this rich rose-pink color, generally known as ''rose Pompadour,'' was created by the Royal porcelain company Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres in 1757.  Combined with Ikea sofas and knick-knacks galore, the office feels elegant but with a vital dash of the unexpected that gives a space character.  While an eclectic and unexpected mix, there isn’t anything overly flamboyant. She leaves the drama for her wall color and a few other choice accents.  Since this office proves pink can be sophisticated, I definitely see a pink room in my future! Enjoy!
