Let me say that the color on the walls is not exactly what you see here. It's not hot pink. I tried flash/no flash/flash without overhead lights/no flash backdoor open, etc., and nothing matched the true colors.
It's not exactly watermelon pink, and it's not red. It's coral, which is a pinky red, kind of like salmon. So just keep that in mind. It's not hot pink.

This is the print that started it all. I wish you could see it in person. The flower in the lower left hand corner cried out to me: "Hey, Pale Island Girl. Wouldn't you like to be on a beach with white sand, sipping a drink and carrying me behind your ear?" And I said, "Why yes, Tropical Flower, I would. I'm going to take you home now." Oh I wish you could see the true color.
Here's the real island girl. This is also sort of her room:
So there you have it, my new
