Color Game : The Lavender House
I've been dreaming about a lavender house - a house filled with fresh lavender and pale violet walls. I've never been a huge fan of purples; but lately, the lighter shades seem so fresh. Lavender is often thought of as the perfect color for a nursery or a romantic primary. Maybe it's time to bring this soft, romantic color into our main rooms. Let's pretend we just bought a summer cottage and want a lavender color scheme. Dream with me as we take a look.
Hydrangeas of blues and purples introduce the interior color scheme.
Natural board floors provide an anchor for pretty lavender walls in this dreamy living room.
A moody family room with ombre walls. A vase if delphiniums and hydrangeas plays off the wall color.
A study in a greyed periwinkle tone. Lilacs add a fresh touch.
A sophisticated lavender for the kitchen island. Would love to have seen a big bouquet of tulips in that green round pot.
A luscious bouquet of backyard lilacs brings shades of lavender into this kitchen.
Gorgeous bohemian guest room wall and a romantic bouquet of dahlias and peonies .
A primary in restful, restorative lavender.
A bubble bath awaits.
And the sweet upstairs guest room. It seems the key to a lavender house is to create rooms of various lavender tones and be sure to give the eye a rest by not painting all the walls the same shade of lavender. Here's to daydreaming of your perfect summer cottage.
And once I'm living in a lavender world, I'd toss on this vintage chiffon dress with lavender roses. Your'e welcome to come by for cocktails any afternoon.
