one of the most important things in life is drawing inspirations from daily surroundings. Always take note in the little things-baby buds blooming on a tree during your Sunday afternoon stroll, the way the sky looks at certain points during the day, the icing details on beautifully crafted desserts in the bakery window. Small details like this are what drive design inspirations for me on a daily basis. This leads me to my latest enthrallment: the color purple.
At first mention, purple might seem a bit passe’ and outdated. However, purple is making a major comeback and has bloomed far from that stark, in your face, unicorn-mane color we all remember from 7th grade. Purple is on my radar right now because of its versatility-play with deep, cooler shades of purple paired with blue hues; take it down the pastel road for a fresh spring look; or style purple in more magenta, vibrant shades alongside bohemian oranges and yellows. Whether it be via interior design, beauty, fashion, food-there is a purple hue for every occasion. Pair deep plum alongside white in your home for an elegant, refined look; style amethyst jewel tones with neutrals and pastels for a bright change of pace in your wardrobe this spring; or incorporate bright magenta throw pillows outside on your porch for a boho-chic tropical feel.
