Purple Reign

Did you watch the Oscars last night?  I at least made it through the Red Carpet, where I couldn't help but notice the abundance of purple, in a variety of hues from the bright and bold to the subtle and sublime...

Last month, the Golden Globes' Red Carpet featured even more purple princesses...

Truth be told, purple is actually my least favorite color, and always has been.  So it's been interesting to be brought in on a couple of design projects lately where purple is the reigning theme, so to speak.  It's actually been a healthy process for my relationship with purple, as I've been able to search for the "best" in the color in terms of fabric, paint, furnishings.  And I'm coming around!

We found this gorgeous fabric for a client who had slipcovers made with it for her Crate and Barrel swivel chairs.  They're show-stoppers!

We're also working on a "tween room", for which this was our initial textile mood board...

As a courtesy to our clients, we do not reveal the specific sources appearing on mood boards...

What do you think?  Do you dress your room or yourself in purple?
