Monday's Pop of Purple {Plus!}

polished porcelain perfection
~*~

Whenever I need some "purple inspiration" 
I can always turn to designer, Jamie Drake's portfolio.

Not afraid of color, Mr. Drake 
shares my penchant for purple.







Which is why I am thrilled to support
Cottages & Gardens Publication's
Innovation in Design Awards,
honoring world renowned designer, Jamie Drake.


For tickets to this fabulous event on May 25, 2010,

Congratulations Jamie Drake!

  1. We can't wait to go to the IDA's and meet all the fabulous designers, especially Jamie Drake - we even did all the centerpieces for the event to coordinate with his fabric!

  2. What a nice and settled light purple in this bathroom..Very girlish and fun! Those busy colourful stripe pictures are very cute and I have to show them to my friend she will love to put something like that in her office (she is a creative mind and loves bold colours)
    Hope you had a fun weekend
    Kisses my dear!

  8. Are you familiar with the book "colorstrology?" I wonder if your color is something with a purple hue? I think it must be some sort of purple rain above your head to gather all those fabulous images.
    That bath, is brave! Does it belong to Harold and his purple crayon?

  9. Jamie Drake is fearless when using color, but he also has restraint too....his rooms are pulled together nicely and beautifully! I'm sure the awards evening will be loads of fun. I was supposed to go to a design event tonight and will be missing due to an event at my daughter's school. Heading out to work now, but I'll e-mail you later.

  25. Purple is the only color I sometimes shy away from...I don't know why...Maybe I feel like everyone's pain in the ass friend in middle schools fave color ALWAYS seemed to be purple? But I think it is time to get over childhood issues :), and Mr. Drake makes purple look EVER so lovely!
    p.s. How was taytay?

  29. When I see these rooms, I am thinking that a high-gloss purple door would be so lovely in a room with white walls and white floors!

  39. I like the look of lavender in a home. I don't know if I'm sold on a darker shade of purple yet-maybe a few accessories.

    ReplyDelete

  47. Great burst of an unusual color. Looks like it's going to be a fabulous event. Jamie is the man!

  48. I was lucky enough to meet Jamie Drake while working on adjacent model apartments at Manhattan House. He is so fabulous and has such an individual sense of style.

    His use of bold color is fierce.

    ReplyDelete
  49. wow! he is NOT afraid of color! not one bit! and i have to say that he uses it rather well!

    ReplyDelete
  50. People tend to be a little scared of purple, but it can be totally fun. We once rented a flat in London where the living room walls were painted this beautiful pale lavender... Very, very pretty. Xx

  51. I will never look at purple the same, that purple couch is calling my name

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow, those are fabulous pops of purple - he certainly isn't afraid of using color, and I'm so glad he displays this great color in such a fabulous way!

  53. Hi ya Zhush!
    Purple it is! I am doing a formal dining room and was hoping to avoid the 'red' cliche. Its a very old home with spacious dimensions and it could look super with a deep regal purple walls and champagne silk puddled drapes...off to visit your other purple posts for the exact shade! thanks xx Lyn (LINI)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Now that's a pop of colour! I love that wall of barcode art. : )
