Paige Minear is the creative soul behind The Pink Clutch. I met her over email a few months back, and after a lovely phone call with Paige about my little business, I fell head-over-heels in love with Paige’s personality and style. Let me tell you – this lady is as smart and sweet as she is talented and chic. During the One Room Challenge, I teamed up with Paige and we picked out a beautiful Turkish rug with pops of hot pink for her daughter’s room, which was part of the big reveal. Her love of Palm Beach colors and Chinoiserie designs captivate me and I always anticipate what photo she will post next. Get a taste of Paige’s style below and if you’re looking for a little more color in your life, then you must join Paige on her Pink Clutch journey!
How did the Pink Clutch start? I started writing in 2007 when blogging was truly just beginning. The blog started for two reasons, I needed a creative outlet as a mom of three children and I wanted a place to share the items I was creating as part of owning a monogram business. When I first began it was more a journal of our daily lives and what that looked like as a family with a special needs child. As the kids got older and I stopped monogramming for others my needs changed for what I desired to write and read about. I started gravitating toward design, fashion and travel blogs and loved the inspiration it provided to me. When I launched the blog as a brand in 2014 I started writing exclusively sharing inspiration and the things that inspire me; design, travel, entertaining, fashion and the like. My goal is to share the things that inspire me with others while choosing to live a joy filled life.
How would you describe your design style? Since both my husband and I grew up in Florida we are both drawn to color, pattern and a beach vibe. He is from Jupiter and I am from Lakeland and we met in Orlando. We both grew up going to the beach weekly so the colors and sights we know so well are very evident in our home. It is Palm Beach chic with lots of vintage and antique pieces we inherited and picked up along the way.
What are your favorite design books or magazines? I absolutely love magazines and books! Growing up I spent a lot of afternoons in a beautiful library and the smell of a book still makes me happy! Flipping through a new magazine or a book is very relaxing to me! I have subscriptions to House Beautiful and Vanity Fair which are my favorite although I also purchase Veranda, Garden & Gun, Coastal Living, Marie Claire and Architectural Digest on a regular basis.
My go-to cocktail to serve at a party is… I love to entertain and I am constantly trying new cocktails. I always have a bottle of Prosecco ready to add fruit and juice to on a moments notice. For a larger group I always serve a punch. It gives me the freedom to mingle and who doesn’t love a fun and colorful punch!!
Go to basics in home design? Fun lamps, great pillows, good blue and white porcelain, design books and always include flowers and a great candle.
I’m currently coveting… Way too many things … darling summer shoes, a cute clutch, great vintage sunnies and the best new summer dress!
