Lavender – Yes or No?

Have you been noticing all of the lavender in shelter mags as of late?  How do you feel about a lavender room?  I prefer it to be more gray than purple, but I think it can make a space feel very soothing.  I am not much of a purple person, but lavender grey I can deal with.  What do you guys think?  Could you go for a lavender room?  Lavender accents?

      Thank you for your comment, Melissa! I definitely see how this could be a good color for a bathroom! Clean and bright.

    Yes! Our room has been painted a grey-lavender shade for 5 yrs now and I still love it. I think it’s an underused color that looks great with bright accents.

    You know I speak my mind:) My mind says no to lavender. It actually screams no to lavender. Would you like me to purchase you a poster of kittens to hang in your lavender room?

    You know I love you!!!!!!!

      HAHAHA!!! Thank you so much for this, KD. A good good laugh to start my day! Yes, definitely yes, I need that poster! And I need the kittens to be in a basket with yarn, pretty please.

      I love you bunches.

    I’ll admit that in high school when I got the chance to paint my bedroom, I jumped at a shade of lavender. It’s a shade too bright but I don’t mind it now, because it feels homey. If you’re going for light and airy, lavender and white can’t be beat!
