Inspiration for ... creamy beige age ... days

Creamy beige makes me swoon. The combo reminds me of so many happy moments that I am instantly calmed and comforted when I see photos like these. Which is obviously why this off white baby pink combo/mesh of color is often used in scary corporate-y places such as dentist's waiting rooms and office building hallways. Id love to reconvert this color. Still it back from cubicle land and use it in a house of my own one day.

Baby pink also reminds me greatly of Molly Ringwald, who just so happens to be one of my secret style icons for a decade I sadly was not born soon enough to experience, and also my wonderfully crazy mother, who slowly with ninjas like abilities turned our entire house into a pink pastel party. Yes that includes the pinkish mauve carpet and multi toned pink, beige, and offwhite walls. She knows what she likes. Linkage below:
