Loving Purple

I think I’ve finally got it! The other night I was looking for bedding when I spotted this pillow:

Nordstrom

I knew right then and there that I wanted to decorate my bedroom in a range of various plum colors. After finding this pillow, I knew that the bedding I had been eying would be too intricate for the pillow and dropped it. I’m kind of glad I did seeing as white wouldn’t work with my lab!

The other day I was browsing Design Sponge, and just fell in love with the entire site. Last night I picked the perfect night to browse once again…seeing as I found these!

I had never heard of Caryn Grossman, but I am in love with her work! My bedroom floor already looks like this…so I’m pretty excited that I won’t have much work to do πŸ™‚ All that’s left is finding out where I can find that comforter, and I’m set! I love these colors, because I can always add turquoise or my new favorite yellow to the mix.
