{lavender & gold}

Had been trying to configure an artful arrangement of all my favourite paintings, photographs, and artwork, that is, until I happened across the simplicity of this exclusive arrangement of fashion illustrations. The uniform gold frames against the deep lavender adds a beautifully luxe and elegant element to an otherwise perfectly simple grouping.

What a great way to display art! The yellow frames look awesome against the purple walls. I'm not normally a fan of purple, but this is very tastefully done.

If only I could commit to a wall color. I simply can't...so white it is. I am the sort who loves wall colors from afar, and this scene is worthy!

You've just really inspired me! I'm moving house next weekend and I have loads of drawings, pictures and prints I want to hang. After seeing this I'm going to make it my mission to find different frames (styles and shapes), but ALL in gold. How great will that look? Thanks hun. Cx

I think lavender is such an underrated color. It just looks scarey on that little paint chip, but beautiful on a wall. It just takes some nerve!

I'm becoming really fond of displaying art and framed photos in ways other than hanging them on walls..

I have a similar color on the wall in my dining room, and it's amazing how different it looks at different times throughout the day. It ranges from periwinkle blue to gray to lavender, and I love every shade.
