New Dining Room Inspiration Board and the Color Purple

Wouldn't this be a fun and glamorous dining room? The walls are painted a soft lavender. The glass dining table and faux bamboo mirror are vintage. I love the pale aqua color of the mirror. The gilded faux bamboo server is Baker. Similar lotus lamps are available at Pottery Barn. The rug is cowhide dyed to look like zebra available at many sources. The fantastic chandelier and chairs are by Marjorie Skouras Designs.

Do you use purple or lavender in your own home? People seem to either love it or hate it. I have created a board on Pinterest with great inspiration for combining purple or lavender and Chinoiserie. Liz Caan Interiors has collaborated with Scalamandre on the iconic Zebras wallpaper in purple. Isn't this fantastic? This would be spectacular in a powder room.

  1. I'd love to hear if you know of any SILK navy chinoiserie fabrics. My dining room is begging for the look, and I see alot of nice linens and cottons, but I like the shimmer of silk in the more formal room. Thank you!
