Color Of The Month Series: Last Minute Purple Finds

August 25, 2011

As August winds down, I wanted to share some of my new favorite purple fabrics! Fabric is one aspect of purple that I haven’t yet touched on. With the expansion of our workspace here at Decor by Denise over the past year, we’ve been able to acquire a few more fabric books, which means we have more to choose from when it comes to purple!

Fabric is one of the most diverse and fun aspects of design.  The purple fabrics I picked below are bold, textured, and patterned, so they would be most suited as drapery, upholstery for smaller items and other uses (for example a cornice or valance).

Some of the new lines we’ve acquired with our added space include Duralee’s new Designer line (“Duralee Designer“), Duralee’s Thomas Paul print books and Clarke & Clarke books, all of which have a fun selection of purple fabrics:

{Here is a peacock inspired Duralee fabric from Thomas Paul 2 Prints Book. I love the reddish-purple color of the cotton and the large-scale repeat of the print}

{Eileen Kathryn Boyd is the designer for the Duralee Designer line, which is full of wonderful fabrics! Here is one of the luxurious geometrics from the Amethyst-Lavender book. We are actually using this fabric on a bench in the makeup room of the girlfriend of our professional baseball player.  I will post photos once it is delivered later this year.}

{Clarke and Clarke’s Cosimo – Sorbet fabric is more of a wine colored purple that is deep and rich. This fabric would make gorgeous throw pillows and would look amazing on a pair of ottomans!}

{Cosimo in Grape}

{See how this fabric would play out on a small ottoman… love!}

{This fabric is also from Clarke & Clarke and is called Vivaldi – Color: Heather. The picture does not do this fabric justice! Here is the link to the website so you can get a better view.}

{Vivaldi also comes in a deep purple}

{The “Renaissance” collection from Clarke & Clarke includes the Vivaldi pattern, shown in pillows and drapery above}

{This Duralee Designer by Eileen Kathryn Boyd stripe is a perfect accent fabric for a neutral sofa.  Again, we are using this in our ballplayer’s home on two ottomans.}

{Last but not least is my final favorite from the Duralee Designer Amethyst book. It’s very whimsical and sweet}
