Welcome to Delightful
Welcome to my fashion & lifestyle blog. This is an accumulation of all of my delightful finds, as well as a bit about me! Hopefully you will pop back to get your daily dose of delightfulness.
Good afternoon and I hope you are all well? Did you see my Sparkly blog post yesterday - I admitted my almost unhealthy attraction to anything that sparkles! What do you have an almost unhealthy attraction to?!
It is funny how colour tastes change over time – I have never really liked purple, but more recently am starting to see it in a different light! Not sure why – times and tastes just change I guess! As I am moving house next year I need to decide on what colours I want where, so this is useful for me – and hopefully for you too?
Heavenly Homes today is all about the colour purple and how touches of such a strong colour can look fab in your home and really lift and brighten a space. For me personally I would not want to fill a room with it – less is more with such a strong colour and perhaps just one fab statement piece would be enough? That said – if purple is your prozac (see yesterdays Sparkly blog post) then just go for it – each to their own!
I came across this purple chair pic (on A Cottage in The Woods) ages ago and saved it just because its so fab – it really would be a statement piece! One of these big French style chairs was on my list of wants anyway – so perhaps a purple one is the way to go?
I really like the feminine mix of colours and patterns on this conservatory photo (seen on House to Home). I think the purple really jumps out at you and looks great with all of the other soft colours.
I am so in love with shutters! I know you need the right house to pull these off (especially in purple) but I thought they were so pretty I had to include them! When I was in Bruges last year – most of the houses and apartments had them – they just create a whole new feature I think. Seen on Daily Dream Decor.
How pretty are these pom pom like flowers (seen on la belle vie)?! Perhaps a vase of flowers is as far as you would want to take the purple – nice little accent either way.
Now this wardrobe (seen on Pinterest, original source unknown) certainly would be a statement! I love the style of the wardrobe, but for me I think I would want the tone of the purple to be slightly richer and darker for something this big.
Ooops – how did this shoe photo get into my Heavenly Homes post?! Hehe – they are purple and sparkly and fab so had to include them! Seen on The Berry.
Ok, back to business! This chaise longue style sofa is cool (seen on Vintage Rose Garden) and I like that the rest of the room is quite neutral. That side table is fab too – I want that!
Now pans are something I am in desperate need of! I have a load of old random ones that everything sticks to and they are actually quite ugly compared to these purple beauties! They are Le Creuset seen on Gloucester Quays.
I think baskets and any type of wicker containers are great – these ones were seen on the Purple Area. They are great for holding clutter whilst looking cool! Having the odd purple one dotted around could be nice – perhaps just one nice big purple one – I like the one on the bottom left of this pic.
What do you think – are you a purple fan? Are there any colours that you have grown to like?
Like purple, I have recently also started to like aqua – but this (even more so than purple) needs to be done in short sharp bursts (aqua blog post coming soon). Have a lovely afternoon and I shall be back tomorrow xx
