Mad for Magenta

Magenta flowers on my mantle.

I tend to get a little color obsessed.  I fixate on a color and have to surround myself with it…..yellow, peacock blue, and the latest, Magenta.

 Maybe it was the magenta peonies and stalk I purchased this week.   I am hoping to use magenta on a current project for a client and have been searching the PDC for fabrics that utilize this color.

Who knows where this obsession originated, but I am digging it.

I was so into Magenta this week that I had my mani/pedi done in the color.

This bag would make me happy.

 Thinking about what to wear with it I realized it goes with everything….black, blue, gray, white.

A wardrobe staple. I need it.

I have been in love with David Hicks La Florentina in Magenta/ Wine fabric since it appeared in Ruthie Sommers Living Room on the the first edition cover of Domino Magazine.  Ruthie Sommers is a a decorating genius, I love everything she does. The sofa is classic that will always remain fresh and current.

The Magenta patterned chairs make this room.

It’s a strong color but it works well here with the other more subtle colors because they are all warm tones.

Even a little pop of this color goes a long way.  Check out the built in book cases in this Rome Apartment


The fireplace+ walls=delicious

You can also add a little Magenta magic to your dining table with this William Yeoward set of  china.



 The old school Negroni Cocktail is a gorgeous shade of Magenta.

I’ll Drink to That.

Cheers to Magenta!
