Color Feature: LAVENDER

I really had to step out of the box for today’s color feature.  Lavender is not in my usual go-to palette, and I honestly don’t know why!  It has such a soft, easy feel and goes great with so many colors – gray, chocolate brown, yellows, coral…

I came across this room designed by Barry Dixon and just loved how easily the lavender sofa softly coordinated with the blue chair, orange shade, and chocolate brown table.  Here are some other purple products that inspire me, and I hope they may give you a little inspiration as well!

Perfect for an entry or a laundry room, Benjamin Moore’s “Queen’s Wreath” is a striking change from the usual neutrals.

Love the purple and gray combination here – especially accented with the black and white.

Lavender and velvet just looks regal.  Again, white just makes the color pop!

The silver table just seems to take over the focus here, doesn’t it?

Sometimes just a pillow or two is all that’s needed to add a little pizazz!

Sometimes colored glass can make such a dramatic difference on a table.

Now that it’s almost Spring, I think I may start “lavendering ” things up a little!  How about you?  Is lavender part of your color palette?
