Purple love.

My post almost didn’t make it today! I was without electricity, hence no internet because of a storm that is still ongoing. I do welcome the “cooling down” effect of this storm though. Also, big shout out to Charlotta of Space for Inspiration for including my blog as one of her beautiful blogs! She has been so welcoming to me from day one and i am so appreciative!

I have been seeing a number of posts on the colour purple lately. The most recent from Couture Carrie. It is one of my favourite hues to use for my makeup(lipstick and eye-shadow), my wardrobe has a number of purple pieces, and i’m currently sporting a cool shade of purple on my toes from Opi. However, as i look around my house, as far as decor goes, the colour purple is MIA. I am not one to shy away from colourful walls, but i’ve never been led to the colour purple before.
The colour purple is said to have mysterious and royal qualities and it also can be uplifting, calming to the minds and nerves, and encourages creativity. How do you feel about the colour purple? Do you shy away from it or embrace it?

  6. Gorgeous sweetie! I love purple. And burgundies and pinks. Especially all together! :) But I don't use them {actually I do have a burgundy couch...} in decor. I think it looks lovely though and you're making me think maybe I should break out and give it a shot :)

  14. How did I miss these last time?! Gorgeous!!!

  15. Thanks hon! xx It's so easy being your friend. You're lovely! x

    Purple. Though I love it in small doses and only in soft and/or muted hues, I can't say that I have a lot of of it at home. In flowers yes, but not in any key elements of decor.
    I can imagine you look gorgeous in purple make-up, but my Swedish skin would make me look like death if I put anything in that colour range on my face. :) Soft lavender works for my eyes though. Other than that I need warmer tones to look ok.

    Gorgeous pictures. I too have those last two bookmarked. Such a nice table!

    Thanks again for your sweet words. I am so glad you have got some new followers. There will be heaps more in the future, of that I am sure!

    xx Charlotta
