Back by popular demand (who doesn’t want to say that?), it is Runway To Room! I know, you are squealing with delight (I haven’t stopped squealing since I began typing this). And who can blame you/me?
I am going to choose a chic fashion statement and then I am going to pick corresponding décor. Simple.
Shall we begin?
This look worn by model Veronica Webb to the “An evening with Ralph Lauren hosted by Oprah Winfrey” event at Lincoln Center makes quite the statement. The gown is one of Ralph Lauren’s and really is beautiful. The dress’s statuesque lines paired with the purple/violet color are eye-catching. And then there are the sparkles. I love how this dress shimmers. Now to be fair, I think the accessories are a little bit quirky (specifically the clutch), but they do add personality to the look.
Now, why did I pick it for Runway To Room? WELL, because purple is one of my all time favorites when it comes to interiors. It is chic, yet fun and is vibrant without being over stimulating (like an orange may be).
Let me show you what I mean:
Like Veronica Webb’s look, this room is accessorized in a highly personal way. It feels quirky, but still elegant enough to be used formally.
I’ve said it before: I am a big, big, big fan of floor to ceiling curtains, plus they mimic the long lean lines of the Ralph Lauren dress. Both looks are extremely sophisticated, but unique—not your average palate.
This room has the purple, it has the shimmer and it has the character. But somehow, it still feels easy (not in a trashy way), just like the dress.
So, purple rooms: love them/hate them? Have them in your own home?
