I have to admit I hated purple for a long time. I disliked it in interiors, and avoided it like the plague in clothing after Isaac Mizrahi stated somewhere that “lavender ages you”!! But I’ve made a complete turnaround and I’m thinking of purple for my l-o-n-g overdue living room design. Sometimes said to invoke dreaming if used in a bedroom, I think purple is one of the most powerful and glamorous colors around.
Painting their tiny apartment in NYC (via House Beautiful) was a bold, perfect choice.
Designed by Decor Demon. This is vintage wallpaper in a lucky lady’s office.
Purple on furniture and ceilings. And how glamorous is purple with black?
What a great idea to paint an armoire purple. It’s such a drastic, yet easy way to make an old fashioned piece look completely glamorous. Purple and brown…another surprisingly great color combination.
Designer Amanda Nisbet – as always a perfect room.
A chic guest room in Tommy Hilfiger’s house.
This room would not have stood out as much, had the ceiling not been purple.
White accents on purple is another nice touch.
The palest of purple.
A subtle, geometric soft purple wallpaper.
Fantastic bedroom via Full House.
Yeah that’s it…I’ve convinced myself. Something will definitely be purple in the living room.
