colors :: magenta {plus velvet}
Wednesday, March 9, 2011 by {darlene}

While the other little girls loved pink,
my favorite was magenta.
Out of my box of Crayola 64’s, I always hunted out the magenta first.

Ever since yesterday’s post on these beauties,

….magenta has been on my mind.

And I cannot think of a better fabric to show off the rich pigments of a lush magenta than velvet. preferably silk velvet.

feast on these beautiful uses of magenta velvet in interiors:


would you dare to use magenta in your home? I would love to know!

    Yes, magenta–I've never met a color I didn't like. :)

    Darlene I forgot about this yummy, luscious color. Love it! The photos are amazing. I'll definitely use it one day soon.

    Warmly, ~Melissa :)

    I have had that same image of the room with the turquoise walls saved for eons just waiting for the perfect place to use it as inspiration. Love it!

  • Love the magenta color-a favorite of mine is Davis Hicks – La Fiorentina – a great geometric with a huge color punch!

  • I just stumbled upon this post — a little late, I know! My oldest daughter is obsessed with magenta. I'm thinking that in her next room, she is going to *need* a magenta chair like the ones you pictured above. Beautiful inspiration!
