So have been trying to reach friend Anne to tell her that she is a clairvoyant. Pink has been her color of the year for pretty much all of her adult life…and now this year the Pantone 2011 Color of the Year is Honeysuckle – a vibrant reddish pink! Anne and so many of my friends LOVE pink. So now…it is their year!

Anne is now living in another great loft apartment in Soho with her husband John and their kids. The family has embraced pink that’s for sure. Pink is still a big decor player in their house…a pink bird cage, the wool rug (that I thought was a Madeline Weinrib…which I am sure I was told at some point…now I am being told “you just don’t listen”…but just found out it is from ABC Home & Carpet), Jonathan Adler Lampert sofas trimmed in pink, a vintage wrought iron glass table base painted pink, pink throw pillows and more!

Happy Honeysuckle pink 2011 everyone and Anne!

Happy Friday too!

P.S. Okay…here’s what’s weird…was up until 2:45a last night working with fab web designer MR launching redesign of blog (let me know what you think…)…and I told him I wanted to get rid of the famous COCOCOZY silver pig photo. We got rid of the pig. What’s funny is that I took that photo at Anne’s house years ago…and I just noticed you can see the same pig on the same table in this photo – the same pig who was my mascot for years. So I should embrace the fact that my silver pig will always be around to some extent!

    It’s going to be a long year for me – since pink isn’t really my fave – but I may change my mind after reading the Mary McDonald book and seeing this fabulous loft!! And too funny about the pig.

    I’m a little upset that pink is the new color! I have always loved using pink and it didn’t get as trendy as turquoise… I am sure with the new year it will be everywhere though… sigh…
