Color Duo: Pink and Yellow

I was inspired by a hibiscus flower I saw in the Grenada rain forest for this color combination. 
One of the great things about living in Grenada is the abundance of flowers. inspiration abounds!

I thought pink and yellow would be a fun combo to look at outside of nurseries.  That's what I think of when I hear pink and yellow - babies. 
to me, pink and yellow work best when combined with white or gray.
either contemporary & cool or cottage & cozy.
oh and there's the vintage look that I love too.
Let's look at pink and yellow all grown up.

 ok so not too grown up. love Kate Spade.

 this is so fresh and fun

High, Low and Eccentric - The New York Times > Dining & Wine > Slide Show > Slid contemporary living room
The brighter side.  Hot pink and bold yellow. and books. 

 same room different view and ta-da, they added a globe!

 & will I ever get sick of Zebra? no!
