The Color Purple!

My daughter asked me the other day what my favorite color was? Before I could even answer her she said, "I know Mom, it's Purple!" Well she was right, it is! I just love the color. I am drawn to it wherever I am! I have a million purple pieces in my wardrobe but here are a few things I drooled over today!


PUCCI suede coat

Anyone that really knows me knows that I am the hat queen! So of course a purple hat is a must!

Ooh, purple suede boots!

I love the soft purple!

As much as I do love the color purple, I draw the line when it comes to these teeny, tiny hot pants! I would never be caught dead in these, can you even imagine that? I'm cracking up at the thought! Wow!

Now when it comes to decorating with purple, I'm all for it! If I could I think I would have it in every room!

This is one of my favs. I just love it. I found it on HGTV and I love the picture hanging. I think red and purple are so great together! And look at how amazing that light fixture is?

I love the one wall in purple with the pop of yellow on the chairs!

The couch is a dark purple but not screaming the color. I like all the pops of color with the pillows!

This room is very rich and warm with the large print on the rug!

I love the delicate purple stripes mixed with taupe!

Large ottoman is so bold and perfect for the coffee table!
House Beautiful!

Who wouldn't want to curl up in this cozy bed with all those pillows? No idea where this is from but oh so cozy!

This picture is courtesy of Domino Magazine. Oh, how I miss that mag!

Forgive me, but I cannot remember where this came from. Love the built ins around the fireplace and the mirrors!

Picture from Better Home and Garden Doesn't the wall look like a purple denim?

This picture is courtesy of Me! This is my purple wall at Halloween!

My mantle at Christmas! Notice all the purple pops with ornaments and even in my drapes!

This is at the top of my staircase!

I was even surprised yesterday when I turned on the television and "The Color Purple" was on! Fabulous movie with an amazing cast! I never tire of watching it!

So does anyone love purple as much as I do? If not, what is your favorite color?

I like purple, but black is a color I go for alot. Probably too much. Pink is another favorite.
