Several of the color combos show variations of purple/lavender with other colors. Purple is one of the colors I have NEVER yet used on my refurbished upholstered pieces. I have over the years bought nice fabrics that incorporate purple (purple and grey, purple and green, purple and yellow) but have remained nervous about the "sale-ability" of this color combo - other than for little (or big) girl's rooms. I am not sure that this article or the illustrations will make me bolder but some of the other color combos I can readily see.
I have created several collages showing photos from this article with some of the pieces in my current collection that would work in the illustrated setting.
|This sweet mint chair would work so well in this type of setting.|
|Big color for 2013/2014 is this emerald/kelly green - and how wonderful with pink and other warm colors.|
|I see purple in this one too but the intended color combo is red and teal - quite striking. This set of chairs is upholstered in a rich red cotton velvet.|
|Nice - and my chairs work so well. They did just sell but I hope to find more in the great look.|
