Kathryn Ireland and Lavender

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Not too long ago, I  blogged here about possibly using lavender as an accent color in my master bedroom.   It's feminine and surprisingly sophisticated (which I like), and could even be considered neutral -  as it marries well with nearly any color you pair it with. 

I love this image I found on Kathryn Ireland's website that features a traditional English sofa covered in lavender!  Have you been to her site?  It's full of all sorts of great inspiration and lots of beautiful color and pattern.

I didn't realize you could order so many of her products online - not that I could afford any of them.  Naturally, I was excited to find this lovely Ikat stripe fabric in lavender! 




Which would work great with this Silvertree Toile currently on sale for $45 per yard!




What color is calling you?

I am so loving the purple family these days! I mean it was my favorite color growing up! AND, my birthstone is amethyst!

That sofa looks great in lavender!

I love all of the purple rooms popping up, but I'm a little too scared to try it! This room is gorgeous, though...love the lavender sofa

Those fabrics are meant to be together! If you use them I want pictures. You have a great eye!

So pretty...I just picked a bunch of lavender colored wild flowers on a hike today. I am feeling like I'd like to have more ice blue.

I know this is a bit boring but the last few years I have just be so in love with white. Perhaps because I live in a hot climate :)

Oooh, Kim, I love the Kathryn Ireland prints! I've been really excited to see how your bedroom is shaping up, so please share!

LOVE Lavender!! I just did a bathroom and selected Schumacher's "Tracery" in Wisteria and I am using the "Shantung Silhouette", also in Wisteria, for the pelmet box. It looks fantastic with the Carrara marble! Thinking of doing something similar to my master bath...

Light cool colors have been appealing to me lately. I think lavendar would be a gorgeous color to accent your room.

I am loving yellow at the moment, but was totally taken with purple after seeing a feature on John Saladino in HB a few months back. Love the direction you are going with your project! M.

I would NEVER have shopped for anything lavender or purple. But, a couple weeks ago I was in Joanne fabric and crafts looking at the remnant table. There was the prettiest medallion? print and a solid lavender next to it. I grabbed them and am Dying to make pillows and chair cushions for my sunroom - my sewing machine is at the repair shop, but I'll be posting about my purple soon I hope.

What a gorgeous sofa and fabric! I have been watching Million Dollar Decorators and love it- as crazy and over the top as it is! I love purple these days, and I'm also drawn to rooms with pops of orange.
