It just might!!!!Love the lamp:) Happy Monday,how was your weekend?Kisses
hm, I think I also heart from a friend that orange will be the color of 2011. anyway purple is gorgeous too and I wouldn't mind having it as a main color next year :)
sorry, meant heard. typo :)
I hope so! I know you would love it! xo
Ba ha ha, your songs crack me up, Sue, I love it! I know for a fact that I am one of those friends, I have been predicting purple as Pantone Color of the Year for awhile now (though I wouldn't be surprised if aubergine sneaked in there...). XX!
I wholeheartedly agree!
Well I'm all for it! To wear or decorate with!
I with you sister.
I heard it from a friend that you might just be right! It really has been everywhere this year. K xx
Myth.Officially 2011 colors are: honeysuckle, coral rose, peapod, beeswax, silver peony, russet, regatta, pale lavender, and silver cloud.No official "purple" on the design radar, thankfully.......Regardless, who cares what's official - use what you like.
I love those dark purple dining chairs!
It sure seems that way, it's everywhere!
It's certainly been around a lot recently - why not also into next year!?
So funny! Honestly, though, do people actually say to themselves 'purple is the color of the year, I am going to paint my living room to stay in tune with the times'? I can see it for fashion, not so much for decor...but, on the other hand, it has been creeping into the design consciousness over the past few years, so people might be a bit more open to incorporating it if they are redoing something.
YES...and I love how you wrote this post! I just bought a purple dress and will share it sometime this week. Happy Monday!!!naina
I have always loved purple. When you walk through my house, there is a little purple in just about every room, not intentionally, just there.
I am not one to go overboard with any shade of purple...but a touch of purple here and there seems really nice!!
Great blog! Love all the pics.Anyways: Thanks for the comment on my blog, and I am totally obsessed with that ring as well :)
I'll see if I can get Leatrice Eiseman on the phone (I was in Color Marketing Group with her - lovely lady) and put a good word in for purple. LOL! I wish I knew her that well. The issue with purple is that people love it or hate it, there is no in between. I always tried to fight for a purple colorway in the fabrics I designed, but 95% of the time the purple was voted out. But it will always be chic and relevant. I love it!!!
Looks great in those pics and I'm sure it's the color of the year if the person love the color. For a trend I'm not sure on trends.
YAY! Purple is my fav!! Love love love it!PS. the Elle Decor lilac dining room is my ALL TIME FAVORITE!
I know that you would be all over that!!!Happy Monday ~~xoxo
i'll always love purple; color of the year or not!!
Oh, I hope so..I'm loving it! ( And it matches your blog so lovely!:)
ok so 1 i LOVE REO Speedwagon, so u got me there! and 2 YES to purple! - i painted my bedroom 2 shades of purple .. i'm with ya on it!!!
I love the first 2 pics- beautiful!!
I'm definitely seeing it everywhere! I think just a little touch in a pillow or throw is just perfect, like the bedroom you showed or even just those purple flowers in the top pic :)
I wouldn't complain if it were... Great first pic!
Hello: Sorry I've been under water so long. My last post was very slow for me. Bobby McAlpine makes me nervous for some reason. He's so good, it is spooky. Anyway, I am going to predict a very strong almost acid yellow that Laura Kirar used in the Baker showroom last April. I'll let you know after Oct. market!
I love that first image!
I have totally been gravitating towards purple as well!
I recently painted our dining room "Get Back Jack" from C2Paint which is like Black Cherry Soda, so kind of purple.
Purple Rain, Purple rain!! You just might be right, and I think it goes FAB with orange! --Gretchen O.
I've always loved purple so it works for me!
A pop of purple never hurt anyone :)
Uhm agreed. So beautiful!! Love it :)
Isn't it weird that I don't like purple, but I love eggplant? It's the same thing! Love those doors in the top photo.
You are so much FUN, love this post and I'm in love what that first picture..
I'm right there with u! You know I'm feeling it these days too :)Happy Monday! xoxo
Thank goodness for that since we have lots of purple in our new 2011 collection!
I've got to admit I am enjoying pops of a color in design that typically isn't my favorite. I do see it a lot these days.....you never know....
gets my vote, fingers crossed!
I've heard it through the GRAPEvine....that 2011 will be the year of the Zhush!! xoxo
I am going with navy and orange -- the colors of Sardinia....but a little purple is nice too.
You might just be on to something here:-). These are all lovely! XX
It's my favorite color! It's about time...
I've never met a grape I didn't like. xo e
Haha, I love it -- such a playful shade!xo Josiehttp://winksmilestyle.blogspot.com
a little crushed purple in a glass--sounds good around 5 tonight!
Hey, it's always a purple year at our house. I love the color!xoxoLila Ferraro
Now that song's in my head. HA! J'adore purple...so I'm down. Although, 2010's turquoise still has my heart!
Oh gosh!! the purples simply look awesome!!
I love it but I think my husband may veto it
i LOVE purple it is one of my fave! I love what it does to a room, its cool and warm at the same time, its chic and always looks fresh. I think I might use purple in my bedroom soon!
I think you're right! I'm seeing it everywhere and loving it!
Fabulous post once again!Nathalie
those look amazing!http://www.mypointmystyle.blogspot.com/
I LOVE how you write these posts! Heard it from a friend... love it! Have a pretty day! Kristin
AMEN!! I don't have it incorporated anywhere but in the closet just yet...but did wear it all weekend long and couldn't be happier regarding this latest (possible) news.xoxo,Carrie
I think you are right! Woo hoo! I keep seeing it more and more lately. I love the deep plum shade that is so popular for fall right now!
wait a minute...i thought i suffered through 19000000zillion comments so that we all could stop predicting and following trends and go with what made us happy???but....if purple makes you happy then by all means incorporate that shit.
ah, yes. the color of royalty. perfect. purple velvet....my favorite
Bring on the purple Zhush! I love it ..... elegant, regal and stylish! Perfect for you... have a great daybest wishesFrances
Sure and those floral chairs should be in every season!
I'm on board with that! I love me some purple.
I always adore your posts - and yes I like a hint of purple in a room. That first image is gorgeous..
I like the touches of purple...but don't know that I would do a purple wall in my house. xoxo
I love purple! I've seen a lot of it already with some of the fall decor! Beautiful photos!
purple is always the color at the zhush, why not 2011 too?!
It was bound to happen! Purple is fabulous!
When you say it like that, it HAS to be in....b/c "someone" said that "they" said so. So it's a GO! Roll that purple show :) XO, Kelly
Had to come back tonight and let you know that I have had a wonderful song in my head ALL day today, and probably tomorrow too.. thinking of you :) xx
Love the color...it's deep, rich and striking!
Love the purple. Following you!www.stylocrat.blogspot.com
Just DYING for the french doors in the first photo... And of course the purple hydrangas :)
That is what they say! And rumor also has it that you will be Pantone's new cover girl!That yellow table is from a great store in Stockholm!Love to you, Mon
Wait you like purple?I think if you want it to be THE color of 2011 then it shall be.
You must just be beside youself right now:-) I love it in decor and see it popping up more than ever, LOVE!
I´m personally not a purple girl, but can enjoy it in other peoples homes. If I´m going purple, it would be a very light one.I have seen a lot of purple lately, so it might just be the color of 2011. Why not?:)That first pic. looks amazing. Also enjoy the industrial yellow table!
And this should make me very happy :)
You are hilarious! Just for you, I hope it is :)
Purple is THE colour for every year as far as I'm concerned!! Always has been and always will be my favourite colour :-)Kelly
I like touches of purple - and that foyer is amazing! Simple but so pretty!
I don't use much purple in the house, but then it WOULD make a nice pop against the greens I have ... hmmm ... and that first photo of the entry - LOVE!
I hope not! Purple is my favorite color of all time! I have it in every room of my house!
Nice photos, and a dash of purple sure makes the day:)
LOVE this post, the purple and that SONG!! So fun! xo
I have such mixed feelings about that...I love me some purple but I don't ever want to get tired of it...If everything is purple then will it be as special. I'm a purple girl through and through so I'm all for spreading the love!
loooove the flowers in the first pic!
Could not agree more!! :)
Oh good, it looks like I'm just about the first to comment on this... Anyways, yes! I've been seeing purple sneak into plenty of designs lately and wouldn't be surprised if it was full blown COTY (color of the year) for 2011. But Anonymus has a different opinion, we are destined for peapod and beeswax apparently. Xoxo
Got something to share? Would love to hear it. I read every single comment:)
