Color Love: Lavender

Tomorrow's impending snowstorm has me dreaming about Springtime, so I thought I'd feature a pretty pastel that reminds me of blooming flowers in the Spring - Lavender.  I love any shade of purple but lavender can be so versatile.  Here are a few of my favorite rooms using the color lavender. Enjoy!

How sweet is this little girls room? The canopies and the coverlets made from  Raoul Textiles  are beautiful but not too fussy together.  And I love the double twin bed look - perfect for sleepovers.  Image via  House Beautiful .

This bathroom is oh so French. I really applaud people willing to paint their walls unique colors like this shade of lavender.    Image via  Gravity Home

This super sophisticated and monochromatic room feels so feminine.  Can you believe the is someone's office space?!  I mean wow.  Image via  Architectural Digest

A more modern use of the color lavender, this time in these sleek upholstered dining chairs.  I love that this complementary color scheme only uses plants to incorporate the green opposite purple on the color wheel.  Image via Remodelista

Here is another dining room using lavender chairs.  The traditionally of this room is basically the opposite of the room above.  Still lovely!  Image via  Traditional Home

Another lavender bathroom. I could see this being used as a Jack & Jill bathroom between two guest rooms.    Image via  This is Glamorous  and  Style at Home

Attic Conversion

My husband and I talk about ways to add more space to our modest colonial if we decide to stay here long term. One thing we've tossed around is converting our attic space into something usable.  Whether it be a home office, a playroom, master bedroom, or just a place to go for some R&R, there are many possibilities.  Here are some images that have inspired me to think about the space differently.

I love that this room could serve multiple purposes - a guest room, playroom and even storage space using the underbid drawers.  The carpet really warms up the space and the light colors and fun wallpaper keep it light and airy.

How moody is this bedroom? I love the wallpapered accent wall and how they used sconces vs. table lamps to not overwhelm the area around the bed.  Image via  A Joyful Journey

It doesn't look like they did much to turn this attic into a playroom.  Just a coat of paint on the existing wood board walls and floor.  Very cute, rustic and functional!  Image via  Domino

I would love to cozy up with a good book and blanket here. I'd add a rug though to make it feel a bit warmer.  Image via: Pinterest
