Lately I am noticing purple all around me and I am loving it. I was walking down Robson Street and noticed a young man with his IPOD wearing purple corduroy pants.
PS Sorry I missed meeting you at the Cantu party!

Beautiful pictures Kelly! Livingetc has the most inspirational pictures on their site. I have this lovely ottoman with a purple and gold pattern through it. I will be studing those pictures you have to see how purples work with all ranges of colour.

We missed you too Patricia!

Purple can be my least favorite colour, or my favorite colour if used in a very muted way. I love it with gray!

What a wonderful posting, I'm so happy to have tripped over it! Purple (especially when dusky or eggplant toned) is my all-time favorite, but I'm not that confident about using it at home. Thanks for these great pics as inspiration!
