  4. 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!

  5. I wholeheartedly agree!

    ReplyDelete

    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.

  9. I love those dark purple dining chairs!

  10. It sure seems that way, it's everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's certainly been around a lot recently - why not also into next year!?

    ReplyDelete
  12. 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.

  13. YES...and I love how you wrote this post! I just bought a purple dress and will share it sometime this week. Happy Monday!!!

  14. 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.

  15. I am not one to go overboard with any shade of purple...but a touch of purple here and there seems really nice!!

  16. Great blog! Love all the pics.
    Anyways: Thanks for the comment on my blog, and I am totally obsessed with that ring as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. 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!!!

  18. 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.

  27. 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!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  70. Just DYING for the french doors in the first photo... And of course the purple hydrangas :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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

    ReplyDelete
  72. Wait you like purple?


    I think if you want it to be THE color of 2011 then it shall be.

    ReplyDelete
  73. You must just be beside youself right now:-) I love it in decor and see it popping up more than ever, LOVE!

    ReplyDelete
  74. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  75. And this should make me very happy :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. You are hilarious! Just for you, I hope it is :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Purple is THE colour for every year as far as I'm concerned!! Always has been and always will be my favourite colour :-)

    Kelly

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like touches of purple - and that foyer is amazing! Simple but so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  79. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I hope not! Purple is my favorite color of all time! I have it in every room of my house!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Nice photos, and a dash of purple sure makes the day:)

    ReplyDelete
  82. LOVE this post, the purple and that SONG!! So fun! xo

    ReplyDelete
  83. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  84. loooove the flowers in the first pic!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Could not agree more!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. 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
