Current Color Crush: Plum

Hello….Saying that it’s been a while would be a complete understatement. I literally disappeared from the blog for two months. Has it been this long, really? I’ve been really busy those two months, the completely insane type of busy but it was so worthwhile and I can’t wait to share with you what I have been up to. I actually wanted to resume posting on the blog with an update about my recent activities but I wasn’t really ready to jump in after such a break and to write a monster post, not to mention that I have a few technical issues transferring about two hundred pictures from my phone to my computer hard drive.

So here is a short post to help me get back on the blogging saddle. I was doing some research for a new project and stumbled on picture after picture in the most gorgeous shades of plum. This deep color, a redder version of purple, has had my heart for a long time. I painted the dado rail of our Paris living room in Farrow & Ball’s Brinjal ten years ago. It’s very much a color associated with Fall and the end of year decline of nature, but it actually looks just as good paired with pretty pastels in the Summer.

Here is a moodboard with my favorite pictures. The key word it evokes to me are: intimate, snug, elegance, luxury, understated. I’d love to hear what this color represents for you.

  • Hi Corinne, all shades of purple, burgundy and plum having a very slow revival. Deep purple even could make it back in 1,5-2 years ahead they say. Let’s see:-) G,xReplyCancel
