Inspired Plum!

Two days ago I shared my favorite Lavender Lovelies and promised no more purple for a bit - but I can't help it - I am also in love with plum! Plum is the vivacious, dramatic, and warm cousin of lavender so I had to include her! Plum looks fantastic with other bold colors and can really hold its own in a room. Our wedding colors were ivory, plum, and navy blue - a combo I will forever love. So enjoy a little plum {and then I really promise to stop with all the purple!}

Plum in the kitchen is unexpected but so beautiful! It's perfect here since there are open shelves instead of  solid upper cabinets - that would have been overwhelming I think! {via}

Just the ceiling of this chic dining room was painted but it gives such warmth. Also I adore the geometric painted floors! {via}

This chair is so inviting and the purple adds just the right amount of color to a mostly neutral space {via}


Plum can feel so traditional at times too - I love it mixed here contrasted with Swedish antiques {via}

How fun is this purple velvet plaid sofa? Sounds crazy but it really works here! {via}

A toned down plum is so calming {via}

This oversized pendant is wonderful and even with the such minimal furniture, the bedroom is really memorable! {via}

Plum is a nice color but in my opinion, it should be used in minimal doses.
