Color trends are a funny thing, aren't they? I wrote a post recently showing purple all over the red carpet and in home decor magazines. So is purple making a come back? I don't know. Did it ever really "go away"? In the May issue of Traditional Home purple was featured on a four page spread giving it rock star status. I imagine there were little girls all over that are quite happy about this, they have always known purple was cool.
I understand color trends, find them very interesting sometimes exciting. My agent told me the other day that she was not fond of red. Omi! Poor red! I do have some purple pieces in my portfolio as you can see but I personally think a color that is found in nature is never "out" for very long. After all, lilacs come back every spring without fail. The fact that they have all the subtle shades of purple in one branch and smell delicious gives them rock star status to me!
