Purple, Patina & Phillipe
It was the three “P”s that stood out for me on my recent trip to New Orleans, a pilgramage I make almost every year with my best friends to regroup, refresh and reinvent ourselves as individuals and as friends.
I spent the first part of this most recent excursion as a research and buying trip for upcoming projects. I couldn’t help but notice the repetition of hues of “purple” and variations of that good old worn “patina” found in architectural elements and furniture.
I fell in love with a collection of amazing Louis Philippe mirrors with highlights of a dulled silver leaf or silver representing a more pewter looking finish. I was so inspired! It was almost amusing how hues of purple, variations of a good worn patina, and Louis Philippe’s influences popped up everywhere. I have a feeling this will stay with me as I continue into some fun new projects…including my own!
