Lavender fields...

I've always found myself drawn to the delectable shades of lavender. From a deep purple to a pale soft mauve, there's something so calming and intoxicating about this hue. Much like the lovely blossoms, it instantly calms and relaxes you.








This is where I'd like to be - enjoying a sunlit walk through the lavender fields in Provence...

Hope you're having a Happy Monday!

Purple, in any shade, is my all time favorite color. The photos you selected to share are stunning. Makes we want to create a purple paradise room in my apartment right now!

H & H, Caroline and Pam - I'm so glad you also love lavender! It's such a lovely, moody shade...
Avante Garde - let's plan a trip! I don't know if I'd ever be able to drag myself back.
Kristen - thank you so much for your kind words - I vote you create that purple paradise! - and then share it with the rest of us ;)

Lavender really is so calming. I love your choices here - all the beds are so lovely and I'd love a long soak in that bathtub!

DOC & FtRB - I totally agree, I don't think it's coincidental that the scent of lavender is the most relaxing and soothing as well :)

There's nothing like it! It's great to spritz your sheets with a natural lavender spray - helps put you sleep and calm any headaches and stress. I long to return to Provence and am looking forward to having a place there someday fairly soon-ish (if that makes sense!) lol. Gorgeous pics, also! I enjoy the color combination of photo 03 :)

Sarah - I also love the scent of lavender to relax with, I have lavender sachets in my linens :) How lucky to have a place in Provence! I want to visit!

Gorgeous pics... those lavender fields are just stunning. I love all shades of purple. It's amazing how a color that can be that vibrant is so relaxing at the same time!
