Andrea Brooks Interiors Pink Living Room

Everything in my house is boys.  So I painted the walls purple and put a pink rug on the floor.

— May Daouk

May’s quote reminds me of the gorgeous living room by Andrea Brooks, a fellow designer and mom of two boys (not twins!) who I am also proud to call my friend.  And yes, she is still happily married.  Boy moms … bring on the pink!  My twin boys loved pink and purple until someone (@*!!*#), presumably the other children at preschool, shared that pink and purple are “girl colors.”  Phooey on that.  

Do your children have color preferences?

    How fun and such an interesting thought you bring up...Sheila's favorite color right now is "yellow" but she likes purple too. She doesn't necessarily tell us that won't wear a particular color, but she is refusing to wear certain items of clothing which makes me wonder if it has to do with the color. I don't love pink, but I love that living room! My husband would kill me.
