Lilac + Lavender

The beautiful sunny afternoons we've been enjoying far too quickly fade from the softest mauve to a dusky storm greys, with everything in between in soft shades of lilac and lavender. These tones always carry a nostalgic air ranging from soft and romantic pinkish lilac to deeper, sultry lavender and and amethyst shades. Softly seductive and alluring. Both are perfect paired with the lovely bright metallics that are starting to pop up everywhere ahead of the holidays. Within a soft purple glow is the perfect place to settle in and take in the bright light or moody shadows of autumn.

Ms. Fabulous you are making me pine for curtains around my bed... How will I ever attain such romance with two incessant cats in the house?

MF - curtains vs. cats... I think I may know the winner of that one :)

Daniella - I am obsessed with lilacs too, I think I inherited it from my great grandma. She had a whole lilac themed bathroom and would even clip pictures of lilacs and paste them on the wall. So charming!

Love how you tie lavendar into the transition of seasons, I've thought the same and have tied deep amethysts to winter before in a post.

You're now on my blogroll!
