Purple

xoxo, Lauren

Everything seems to be blooming now…   (yay!!!!)   I took these photos in our yard last week & I can’t believe how much greener everything’s gotten between now & then.
{our wisteria}
A lot of what’s blooming in the yard (and what I love in our yard- lavendar, wisteria, crocus, violets & even the weeds) seems to be purple.  And purple’s not a color I really think of as liking very much for interiors…  But I did come across a few spaces where I think it’s really beautiful & I think I seem to like it most when in small doses (vs all over, like on walls…  although I could probably be convinced 😉 in a room.
{Elle Decor…  just a single shot of purple}
My violets (below) remind me of when I was a little girl walking around the neighborhood picking violets to press…
I loooove the purple pillows in this room:  (and the entire room to be honest)
The amethyst on the coffee table is beautiful.
Here’s another pic of our violets.  My favorite are these white & purple ones:
{I love getting violet bouquets from my boys}
And below, this room feels really good to me.  I think that when I typically think of purple, I think of it in connection with teenage girls’ rooms  or cold-modern rooms and I imagine it in “flatter” spaces without much depth and that feel a little “plastic” to me, but after finding these few “purple rooms” I’m realizing that I really do love it when it’s an accent in a room full of texture & interest.
..And I think this applies to pretty much any color.  Of course I have favorites (no- not green!!! 😉 😉  but I also love the challenge of working with colors that aren’t my favorites & making beautiful spaces out of them.  And I really appreciate seeing rooms where designers have done this & they make me love a color I wouldn’t normally think of as even liking.   ( I wonder…  could this even be possible with burgundy for me???!!  probably.)
So, thanks Flowers, for opening me up a little & making me reconsider purple!
ps- We caught a bug in the house this week & it has seriously been one of the worst ever…  some sort of crazy chest pains along with all of the usual cold stuff.  (Even my assistant, Meghan, is out sick)  I’m definitely backed up on emails & will get to them as quickly as possible!!  It’s looking like I might be on the up today!

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.|
