I am feeling pinks and grays as I travel into the lovely month of May. Well, let me be honest — I am always feeling pinks and grays! But May can be sweet and stormy, so I think the two colors fit the bill perfectly. Together they are calm and beautiful and make up one of my favorite color combos. — Melissa from Melissa Loves
Cushion, Natural Facet - $115
What can I say? Susan Connor’s designs go with anything and everything! I like to work them in any chance I get.
Love Poems by Pablo Neruda - $11.95
What’s not to like about love poems with a pink and gold cover — by Pablo Neruda, no less. Even if you never crack it open, this book will bring a smile to your face anywhere you place it.
Zig Cotton Dhurrie, Fog - $195
The quiet strength and handsome color palette of this rug make it soothing and striking.
Vice Versa Linen Throw, Bonbon - $350
I love this throw for its shade of pink, or maybe because of the fabric. Either way it gets a thumbs-up.
Aztec Blanket, Rose - GBP 65
This is another beautiful throw. It would be perfect tossed over the back of a couch or on a bed.
Copper Light CL-16 Pendant Lamp - $625
This gorgeous pendant is such a great way to brighten up a room.
Queen Lady Peacock Bed Head, Pastel Pink - AUD 459
I love this awesome rattan headboard by The Family Love Tree (great name, too). I think I would go for natural or white rattan, but this pink one would be perfect in a white room with gray and gold accents.
Bone Inlay Nesting Tables, Set of 2 - $449
I am always coveting bone inlay. These nesting tables in gray are very handsome.
Torres Wool Kilim, Guava - $69
All of the fresh takes on tribal-inspired rugs available today are so lovely. I like how just a few of the details here and there in this one are white.
Eclectique Dinner Plates, Steel Gray, Set of 4 - $119.95
I love the utilitarian design of this handsome gray plate. It would be beautiful paired with dishes in a more ornate and feminine pattern.
Mud Australia Pink Serveware - $18
This delicate and understated pink serveware would be beautiful on any table.
Beverly Joubert Photography ‘Pink Dusk’ Print - $2,800
I love this photograph. I don’t usually covet nature photography, but this elephant is so beautiful. I wish I had a giant version of it on one wall.
Orianna Chair, Slate - $998
Simple and elegant, this chair would fit in just about anywhere. The soft gray velvet is so lovely.
Black and Pink Marbled Planter
I love the pattern on this handmade planter, with its striated blacks, grays and pinks.
Washroom Mirror - $298
This is a great-looking mirror. It has simple lines and a useful little shelf. Hang it in a bathroom or an entryway to hold your keys and mail.
Pink Floral Fringe Pillow - $98
How could you not be cheerful while looking at this sweet pillow? It’s pretty as a picture and fresh with fringe. Yes, please!
Etched Arcadia Mural - $298
I can’t resist a giant mural. This one would be so great in a dining room or bedroom, or really anywhere you’d like to create a little drama or a sense of adventure. Its gray tones would fit in anywhere.
3M 3313 Copper Foil Tape - $53
I keep thinking of all the fun DIYs you could pull off with this copper foil tape. I might edge out a plain picture frame or add it to the edges of a coffee table in need of an update. Or create a custom design on the wall. What would you do with it?
