Top Five Purple Picks for Interior Decor

Purple has never, ever been my color. I often wonder if this is a designer thing as I distinctly recall a designer I worked under in San Francisco’s hating purple. I mistakenly wore a lavender Brooks Brother’s blouse one day to the office and was reprimanded by her assistant “didn’t I know purple was off limits?”

Fast forward 10 (okay 15 years) later and many years working as an interior decorator online and I admit the color is slightly growing on me. The strongest influence is my 6-year-old daughter who has decided she is “over princess prissy pink” and only likes purple. Way too much watching of Descendants perhaps!

So in honor of her new favorite color, and a color that is growing on me, I have complied a list of five top shades of purple for interior design:

Online Interior Decorator Find of the Week Pottery Barn Cammeray All Weather Sectional

Online Interior Decorator

As an online interior decorator, my thoughts of warmer weather lead me to outdoor design. Even though there is still a lingering chill in the air, I can’t help myself from dreaming about summer.

My current summer love is the Cammeray All Weather Sectional from Pottery Barn. The slim profile is a fresh look and welcome after years of heavy, blocky outdoor future. The collection is fresh, casual and classic – simply perfect for the upcoming warmer months.

Brass Ring Definition:

Few of those who reach for the brass ring of the Presidency achieve it.

  1. the opportunity to try for such a prize.


First, the “wealth” table lamp from Neiman Marcus is hand crafted of solid brass with a linen shade. A dream lamp with a price tag of $675.00.

Online Interior Design Service – Texas Ranch House Design

This week, one of the many rooms I had the pleasure of designing was a Family Room for a Texas ranch house. Think long room, old fireplace, wood paneling and two exterior doors.  This space was a challenge on the furniture layout side but the decorating side was a blast!

I added warm white walls, a leather sofa, some rustic elements, fun prints and pops of color turned the space into a ranch meets updated farmhouse look.

Below are a few of my favorite selections from the design:

  1.   Area Rug

Online Interior Design Service

The rug is where a design usually starts for me and this room was no exception. Once I found this jute rug with teal stripes I knew exactly where the design was headed. What is not to love about this rug? Natural fiber, stripes, color, fringe and this rug from Surya happens to also be budget friendly.

2.   Throw Pillows

Online Interior Design Service

These wool and cotton throw pillows from Surya hit the right note between rustic and refined. Place on the brown leather sofa, these throw pillows added the needed color and a touch of softness.

3.   Wall Art

Online Interior Design Service

To break up the newly white painted wood paneling on the walls, we needed some great art. This set of framed botanical prints was exactly right. Try hanging a series of art near a television to break up the look of big boxes on the wall. We placed these near a television to do just that.

4.   Coffee Table

Online Interior Design Service

There are a lot of industrial modern style coffee tables available these days. In my online interior service design work this is something I stumble into all the time. Our selected table from Wayfair hits all the right notes – style, scale and price.

5.   Pouf Ottomans

Online Interior Design Service

This teal and green graphic print is just what my design needed. One would not typically think modern print in a farmhouse style but sometimes mixing in the unexpended makes a design awesome.

Online Interior Decorator Favorite Find – WS Home Marinella Perosa: Ombré Landscapes Art Grouping

Online Interior Decorator

One challenge as an online interior decorator is finding a ready-made series of art, that look curated, beyond the standard botanical or fruit print. This is why I was so excited to discover these abstract prints, available in a series, from Williams-Sonoma Home.

Groupings art together make a bold statement in almost any room. Something about hanging a series of similar piece together to make a large composition speaks cool, refined and strong sense of style.

Reminiscent of Rothko’s artwork, Marinella Perosa: Ombré Landscapes are colorful almost linear works of art work. Together they create an unexpected yet totally awesome twist on an art grouping. The composition is strong enough that this series could be used alone in a room as a singular statement.

Love these framed works of art so much I may need for my own home!

Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore Online Interior Decorator Color of the Week

Online Interior Decorator

First and foremost, I completely admit that I am on a deep blue kick. Very rarely does an “in” color speak to me in this way but there is something about navy blue that is classic and so lovely.

This week I spent a morning with a client selecting a deep blue wall color for her Dining Room. Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore was the absolute winner. What I love so much about this color is that it is a neutral in an unexpected way. A deep blue color, yes, but more of a backdrop than an in your face color. Almost like a pair of great jeans – they go with anything.

The below photos show just how great this color is with so many different styles.
