Purple Reign

Boy has it been a long time! I have missed blogging, the last few weeks of school were so brutal. It's over, it was a tremendous quarter of growth and self discovery for me. More like affirmation rather than discovery maybe? Taking more of my core classes reaffirmed that I have finally chosen the right path for me. I really enjoy this field of Interior Design. Even after finding out things that I wasn't expecting about the industry, or for the first time really working my butt off in school, because everything is not coming so easy for me (I'm talking about you Auto CAD). I finished school a weeks ago I think, and I have just been distressing, and I really haven't felt very motivated to blog either. Don't get me wrong, everyday I think about it, and I missed the process, but I just haven't seen or felt passionate about anything that I wanted to share. I was okay with that, instead of feeling like I had to come up with something, I just went with it. I figured once my brain was ready, I will be back. Last thing I want to do is to post for the sake of it.

That wall is no doubt the focal point in this room. I love the height of the headboard against the half painted wall. The pillows, the prints on them and the rug is just perfect. You can see the Moroccan influence, but it is nicely balanced with some modern touches. 
The last few weeks of school I noticed myself being drawn to rich purple tones with my projects. I've never really been a purple person. Lately lavender, but never really deep rich purples. It is said to be the color of royalty, and I think I finally get it. It is quite regal.

This beautiful crocheted blanket brings in such warmth and softness to this room. This room could have easily been on the very formal side, but the addition of this beautiful blanket loosens it up.
I love this saturated shade of purple for this couch. 
This chair is sexy!!! The lines and that plush luxurious velvet upholstery. I'm a fan of purple with yellow too. 

I love the round bubble rug. I like this mix of industrial and classic design. 
I find this room so perfectly eclectic and sophisticated.
How have you all been? Thanks to all of you who checked in regularly and bared with me on my long absence. Wishing you a lovely weekend!
