Divine Living With Michael Devine

I love Michael Devine’s fabrics ( found in the john Rosselli showroom at the D and D) and have used them for everything (drapes, headboards, wall upholstery, sofas, chairs, etc). If you are not in the market for new fabric but want a bit of fun, take a look at these goodies he sells. Upholstered in fabric from his line he makes trays, picture frames, notebooks, and catchalls.

Laminated trays made from his Pinwheel fabric in azure and leaf

Laminated trays made from his Venice fabric

shown in: Blue, chocolate, and scarlet

Picture frames:

soft aqua: made from his Bagatelle fabric in sea

Napkins rings that are summer ready- made from his hand painted Ashley fabric

A notepad and pencil cup made from his Dottie fabric in graphite- so chic!

Varying Shades of Purple

One of my favorite colors, hands down, is purple, weather it comes in eggplant, aubergine, lilac, lavender, violet, or plum I love the rich moodiness of the color. One of my client’s had me on the hunt for purple and I found a treasure trove of fabrics, wallpapers, and paint colors I would love to use in the near future. I look towards nature and the majority of my favorite flowers are purple:

Hyacinths

African Daisies

Hydrangeas

Delphiniums

Lilacs

Pansies

Foxgloves

Grape Hyacinths

Violets

And lavender…. rows and rows of lavender!

California Paint- Faded Lilac

Farrow and Ball- Bringal

The below rooms have lavenders, plums, rich aubergines, and lilacs mixed to perfection.

Pierre Bonnard loved purple and paired it with all colors. I use ome of his paintings as jumping off points for clients:

Above: a favorite combination, lavender, plum, and pale yellow

Above: I would take the pale lavender, bright cantaloupe, and the sea foam for a sunny palate in Florida

The painting above with the lavender and bright red in the tablecloth has such warmth

Above: I would take the lavender, warm bright yellow, ivory, and deep forrest green
