Loving Lavender

John Robshaw pillows & Oly lamp available at Le Cirque!

Gwyneth Paltrow's bedroom in the Hamptons. Love all the white mixed with soft purple. Get a lamp like hers here.

E ach of these rooms incorporates lavender- a color that is often overlooked and under-used. Purple is the color of royalty and is also a great neutral. I absolutely fell in L-O-V-E with lavender last summer on a trip to Italy. The Four Seasons Hotel Florence has the most amazing lavender and grey dining room (worthy of it's own blog post!!).

Lavender is also a great alternative to a pink girls room. This past year I used it in a 12 year-old girl's room, who couldn't stand the sight of pink...way too baby-ish!! So we painted her walls a pale lavender and used Serena & Lily's Delphine collection for bedding. It turned out really well and inspired us to pull purple accents throughout the rest of the house. Stay tuned for a post on that project.

  1. I have a little boy, but I ponder a girls room frequently! I always thought that a light lavender would be a nice alternative to pink! It's very sophisticated! Those John Robshaw pillows are amazing!
