As tempting as it is to crack myself up by making this post about decorating using bunny decals, I’m going to bite my tongue, do the right thing and introduce the idea of pastels.

Before your inner grown-up spasms at the mere mention of them, allow me to suggest that pastels are not just for little girls and/or grown women clutching posters of Disney princesses. Instead, I challenge you to flip the script: pastels are for the bold. By going pastel, you’re telling the world that you’re secure in your femininity, and you’re not afraid to wield a little pink paint to prove it.
