Color Crush: All Things Purple

I just got back from a family trip to Walt Disney World, which could've been one of my favorite vacations to date.  I know it sounds crazy, but watching the pure joy in my 5 year-old niece and 3 year-old nephew's faces when they experienced the parks for the first time was really special.   I'm feeling inspired today by my niece Lily's favorite color: purple!  I don't usually gravitate towards the hue, but I've come across a few spaces lately that are killer and happen to have violet in them.  The first is this bedroom designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber (one of my favorite designers ever):

Another Jeffrey Bilhuber stunner (I'd take a purple sectional over a beige one any day):

The other space with purple touches is this drop-dead gorgeous bedroom  in Alexa Hampton's New York apartment:

The mix of reds, mauves and purples is just divine here.  I love the juxtaposition of casual batik textiles with Fortuny bedhangings and upholstered walls.

The scalamandre le tigre on the neoclassical chair above is one of my favorite fabrics  (here's a pillow version I love), and it looks stunning amongst all the purple hues.

Here are more touches of purple to love...

Lighter lilac tones are soothing, especially so when in t-shirt  or pajama form (these sheets seem incredibly soft, too!) And it's even better when they have price tags like this and this.  

I also stumbled upon Target swimwear and learned that currently they are offering a buy one get one 50% off sale- which means I might have to snag this and this, which feel universally flattering.

A touch of purple here and there in the home is lovely, too.  I love thisthis, and these particularly.  Anthropologie also has a lot of gorgeous rugs with purple tones in them.

Next up, I'll get around to writing a travel guide post for Disney!
