Visions of Violet


Happy Thursday, lovelies! Hope that you're all having a wonderful week. So happy that it's Thursday already. I can almost feel the weekend already!

I know it's almost fall so these days my eye has been bombarded with the typical autumn palette, Golden amber, olive & moss, and apple & burgundy, all colors I absolutely love. But for some reason today I'm dreaming of all things violet. It's vivid yet light & airy, with just of touch of smoky and for some reason it instantly entrances me. I just love being in a purple haze.

What colors are you drawn to today?

I totally love purple too - it's so vibrant and entrancing! Shades of pink also work for me all year long!

What a lovely soothing color. Definitely set my morning to the right tone! :) I am drawn towards yellow a lot lately!

I love that violet shop - how sweet! I'm feeling burnt orange and olive green today...might be to do with the vintage find I just snapped up at the charity shop. Very autumnal! Only one day left until the weekend!! xx

Last night I did a flower consultation for one of my brides... The palette she presented me was so beautiful and chic, definitely fall-ish, but not so obvious: ivory, violet, fushia (but a sort of muted version, not too shocking), and a powdery burnt orange...

Violet/purple my favorite color. The color of abundance and prosperity (if you are into crystals and Feng Shui).
I love the lovely flower pots; delightful

Beautiful photos Dawn. I, too, am drawn lately to soft purples and greys. Something about them is so perfect for fall.

ps-I dream of just tossing my arm up fearlessly baring my pit to the world!
