Purple room

Purple is my favorite color - and so naturally I want to incorporate it somewhere in my home. I love that it feels so royal. Such a rich, comfortable shade to me. However, if done poorly, purple can look a little cheap and girly. Kevin needed some convincing when I told him I wanted to add purple to our new living room. We already have a white couch, but that is about the extent of our furniture for the living room so far. I created these boards to prove to him that purple can be done right.

Which board do you like best? And do you think purple can be done right?

any color can be done right as long as you use an editing eye (as tim gunn would say) and stay true to your taste. i like the last one best!

i love purple too. I like the purple vases and trinkets. I also really like the purple pillows. Purple can definitely be done right. Its a great accent and the splash of color spices up the room.

I love the first board. I think purple accents - pillows, a throw, and some gold added to it would be gorgeous! It's such a classy color!

It's a toss up between the first and second board. In my opinion you can never go wrong with purple; it's rich, classy, and elegant.

i would have to say the first is my favorite. I love purple. sadly I have no purple in my house except for in autumn's room...and it looks very girly. haha

So cute, I think it can be done well. My favorite would have to be the first one.

Heather said...

Mm, I don't think the flag really goes with what you would want in that room..I would stick with one or two. Have you gotten a place for next semester? love you!
