Purple Reign...





I've been thinking a lot lately of using purple in an interior - and so was completely awe struck when I came across these lovely pinks/purples in this home featured in Metropolitan Home. This is such a luscious and contemporary use of the tones - such a far cry from the chintzy or hippy purples that I mostly find around the place. Just gorgeous...

I have seen colour prediction some months ago and purple was one of them. Nice reinvention. I like the softness of it.

They do look very pretty - i spent my childhood *7o's) obsessed with purple and had purple wallpaper, purple carpet (my room only lol), purple clothes everything...so i am kinda wary of it nowadays but the way its presented here makes me think again. Mel xxx

I love it and really love that chair in the second photo....the fabric is amazing. Like Melsrose Place I had a lilac room in the seventies, with chenille bedspreads for my sister and I! Why didn't I keep those bedspreads? I just bought some fabulous chenille from Spotlight today to back my baby quilts and I was reminded of my old bedspread, then I came here and saw this!

Hi Shannon, just spotted a bold purple interior in the Dec 2007 Home Beautiful mag (going through old issues to find some Christmas decorating inspiration!). It's the home of Brazilian designer Adriana Barra. Let me know if you want me to scan it and send.
