purple is back!

I’ve been waiting 20 years for this.

My favourite colour isn’t embarrassing anymore.  Purples are suddenly everywhere, particularly silvery lilacs and dirty aubergines.  So dirty…yum.  I would wear this first bedroom if I could.

I am love love loving musty, dusty purples right now.  Lookit’ these couches!  Hot damn.  My head understands that my living room will never look like this, as it is somewhat smaller than a tennis court.  I know, okay.  I get it.  But my heart tells me silvery-purple velvet is a perfectly sensible use of our down payment, I’d only have to turn a few tricks to replace the cash before JJ notices it’s missing…

This is the work of photographer Richard Powers, no idea who’s responsible for the design/styling.
