Plums are in — as a seasonal summer fruit (soon to end) and as a color for fall, which can be preserved.
I get inspiration from all over. Art is everywhere I like to say. When I saw this Natori gown, not only did I think it was beautiful, but I was inspired by it’s deep plum color. Traditional Home magazine featured it as part of its Iconic Designs in their September issue. I happen to like Josie Natori’s quote, “I have always believed there are no boundaries…What began with lingerie has evolved into a lifestyle.”
Artists get inspiration from all sorts of sources. Mine here was fashion that helped inspire our plum colored, faux-padded headboard. I went a little lighter in tone but the great thing is it can always be made darker or any color you want.
It turns out that the plum color in interior design is au courant as seen here, again in Traditional Home’s paint color profile.
