Pink Naysayers

It's so much easier when you don't have to paint around furniture.  Oh, well!
We (and the horses!) are all settled in to our lovely new home so the first item (after the fencing) on our agenda was to paint the bedrooms.  I know most people suggest taking care of the main floor first when moving into a fixer-upper.  However, I would politely disagree.  Painting the bedrooms first creates a sort of oasis in the midst of a home torn apart, dirtied and cluttered with tools while it's being repaired.  Trust me, I'm speaking from experience.
Getting started by Kilzing it all!
So, when I asked Evelyn and Claire what color they'd like their room, they simultaneously agreed:

Pink!
The finishing touches on the trim!
There are a lot of pink naysayers in the world and generally, I am not too keen on the color splashed across an entire room but you should have seen the look on the girls' faces when I finished.
The neutral walls...
Granted, the pink is a bit toned down and I only did one wall as an accent but I think it gives the room a nice feminine touch without going over the top.  And I hid a little pink in the closet too when the doors are open, just for fun.
What do you think?  Are you a pink naysayer or are you brave enough to let your children pick their own colors?
