Friday’s Favourites: Purple

by

Not wanting to offend any purple-lovers out there but I’m not personally a big fan of the shade.  But talk about plum, mauve, lilac……well that’s another story.  Since the colour Radiant Orchid earned the title of Pantone’s Colour of the Year, purple seems to have had a resurgence in the decorating world. My favourite combination at the moment is mauve with grey or silver.  When paired together, these colours are luxurious and chic.

I love this beautiful white kitchen with hints of grey and mauve highlights.

What do you think?  Is purple, or a shade of, a colour you use in your decorating?

Have a lovely weekend.

  1. While I haven’t used any shades of purple or mauve in my interior spaces as an adult, I am definitely drawn to the colour and loved it as a child.
    I attribute this positive colour association solely to Cadbury! Also, it is commonly a second daughter’s colour scheme with pink most often taken by big sis (mine included). x A

    P.S. Love that second room. Bliss.
