Purple Reign

Purple has never been my favorite color. In fact, I’ve always been more attracted to pink. However, I couldn’t help but notice this feminine, regal color popping up everywhere over the past month. Most of the major shelter magazines ran stories with interiors dressed in varying shades of purple and lavender and it seems to be having a big moment in fashion as well. Are you drawn to purple? I think I usually shy away from it because it can seem a bit too cold and over the top girly sometimes, but this images have me singing a different tune. It seems purple can be completely chic and elegant.

Fabulous post! Love these sumptuous photos. Purple is such a great accent color in a room.

I, too, tend to keep a distance from purple items, but perhaps that's because my high school team colors were purple and gold. Funny though, the few purple clothing items I have, I usually receive the most compliments on.

My apartment is done in Amethyst Sky by Benjamin Moore and I absolutely adore it! Oddly, though, I'm not a fan of purple rooms in photographs (including my own). Somehow, they lose their emotion. But that Birkin is swoon-worthy. I'm in love.

Funny I too did a purple post and it's funny because we don't have any of the same pics. Goes to show you how popular the color is becoming in interiors.
