Wanda Matthews, 20, loved pink from a young age – and, as soon as she moved into her own place, she set about transforming her home into a shrine to the color
Her bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom and children’s playroom are a candy-colored testament to her passion for pink, with everything from the carpets, wallpaper, furniture and bedding in varying shades of the rosy hue.
The mother of two, from
Bolton, wears something pink every day from her pink wardrobe, and even her kitchen has a pink kettle, toaster, pots and pans.
She only buys pink cleaning products, listens to a pink iPod and makes calls on her pink cell phone. Her young daughters have happily fitted in with the color scheme, wearing pink clothes and playing with pink toys.

‘I’m looking for some pink wood-paint to do my garden fence with and I’ve found this special heat-proof pink paint for the oven,’ she said..
