In Decorating

Some of my favourite rooms have Mauve…

elle decor april 2010

I’ve been in love with pictures this year that have mauve/lavender in them, and when I spotted the April 2010 Elle Decor issue cover, I snatched it up. Normally I browse through the pages to see if something interests me and is worth purchasing, but when I saw the cover of this months issue, I just had to have it for the cover. I fell-in-love with this colour combo above. The purple, the orange. I heart jewel tones.

That is my Sunday evening post. I’m just trying to figure out how to incorporate this beautiful tone into our house. I sense a fabric buying spree and some pillow projects for Mom. 🙂 I have to go return the fabric samples that I brought home for our kitchen bench, so it’s very likely that I’m going to come home with some purple. Maybe for the back cushions for the new bench? Possibilities, Possibilities.

    I loved that cover, too. I agree, the grayed purples are gorgeous!

    Mauve adds so much to a room. Good decision buying the Elle.
