A Passion for Purple!
I have always loved purple! I have a school photo of me in the 5th grade and in it I am wearing a purple sweater and wearing a purple silk flower comb in my hair, it is one of my all time favorite photo's of myself as a child. I once had a room with purple velvet curtains and throw pillows but everything else was pretty neutral in the room. In my next home I hope to have enough space where I can dedicate my passion for purple in a whole room, I'm talking purple furniture, etc. I've noticed that while reading some of my favorite design blogs that more and more people are using the color in their homes. I see it used with grey a lot and I really love that combination! Well here are some photo's I've started collecting of purple rooms or rooms with maybe just a few spashes of purple. What do you think? is purple here to stay for home decor?
Love this carpet! and the grey velvet sofa, this is just so chic! I would have never thought to use a brown table though...
How luxurious is this bedroom?! Who wouldn't love to sleep against this beautiful headboard.
Not sure if this is exactly purple, looks a bit more magenta maybe? but I love the modern shapes in the room.
Love everything about this room!
This room gives me more ideas for my next bedroom, again love the combination of grey and purple with the chocolate brown headboard and dresser.
I am dying for the curtains and ceiling color of this room
Another beautiful room
Purple and grey again! a winning combination
My favorite one of all! that wallpaper and silver sunburst mirror is to die for! I also love all the mirrored pieces, this would be my dream room.
Welcome to my home decor blog! I have an appreciation of all styles of home decor but Hollywood Regency and French Provincial are my personal favorites although shabby chic and cottage style make more sense for my lifestyle.. This blog will be about some of my favorite rooms, low cost options for furniture and decor, my own DIY projects and just anything related to home decor and furniture.
