The title of this post is borrowed from the title of the first episode of a BBC TV series Sherlock (2010- ), which has transferred the famous detective and Dr Watson to modern times. In turn, the makers of Sherlock have borrowed the title from Arthur Conan Doyle’s first novel introducing “consulting detective” Sherlock Holmes – A Study in Scarlet (1887).
However much I love the series and Doyle’s novels, this time I’m not inspired by Holmes’ stories (although you might expect such a post soon). Willingly or not, I’ve been flooded by the news about the new baby in the British royal family. HRH Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge was born on 2nd May 2015 and the British Isles went…pink – at least on that very day.
20 London landmarks, including the London Eye and the Tower Bridge, turned pink to celebrate the birth of the Princess:
On receiving the news about the birth of her new great-granddaughter, Queen Elizabeth II wore pink, too:
Thus, my mind has been filled with the images in various shades of pink. Perhaps, a natural logical consequence would be a post about girly pink baby rooms, but I’ve decided to focus on the title of the BBC series and to read it literally.
How about a study, or your home office, in pink? And it does not have to be necessarily a baby pink. I’ve chosen interiors that have strong pink accents – either in magenta, fuchsia, pastel or salmon pink. And, as always, I’ve found some matching home decor and furniture that you can stylize your rooms with.

5. Traditional, for two, with a view
7. Transitional with an industrial touch (board)
