Don't Point the PINK-EY Finger at Me......


...and they tell me I love pink too much. Well guess what? There is someone out there who loves pink more than I:

Betsey Johnson is one of my favorite designers. I call her "Miss Cartwheel" lol. Anyway, to enter into her New York Penthouse is to enter a world in which her imagination-as usual-runs wild. One enters through an aluminum front door resembling that of a spaceship, and lands inside the two-story penthouse.



The loft’s walls are painted a pure white (once a chrome yellow in their previous incarnation), and the floors are stained dark. Minimalist pieces such as a stark platform bed from Ligne Roset, sleek industrial cabinets with glass doors and lined in antique lace in the kitchen, and a set of classic 1960s dining chairs with curvy basket backs complete the intriguing look.



Her bedroom is “an explosion of pink,” with pink painted walls and a bright-pink embroidered silk quilt from Coco de Mer in London, a shagpile rug in a matching shade, and vases with artificial roses.



As a rose-tinted spectacle, Hollywood-style sofas and a couple of George Nelson glass-topped benches, designed in the 1940s and used as a coffee table, adorn the living room. Her mid-century pieces have been removed from storage, and include an original Womb Chair and stool by Eero Saarinen, a dark wood dining table with clean lines and Warren Platner chairs softened by a swirly botanical rug.





Now that's a lot of pink.......

You have to love it though as it truly reflects her personality.
