How do you solve a problem like purple?

Below is from Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles.  It's the new condos at the Ritz Carlton from designer Bob Brown.  The other photos of this place aren't that bad and I guess if I was being generous this feels "dramatic" and "vibrant" but I'm not feeling generous.  I'm feeling like I want to vomit.  Green chairs?  Ok.  Pink and orange pillows? Cute!  But gawdolmighty the purple on purple with the purple couch next to the green????  I think I just threw up in my mouth.  Yes that was definitely early morning vomit.

Purple and green really just make me think of this.

Oh shit it's making it's way to the runway this year.

It all just looks really close to this...

Bet you ten dollars and a bag of sour patch kids that in 6 months I'll LOVE it.  Because I'm that kind of fickle bitch.


  1. And what will happen is you will be trying to tell everyone that they need to add purple to their living room and next thing you know you will be designing a purple and green rug with turquoise accents, cause you know turquoise is the it color for next year

  2. Yeah Pantone says tur-qwaz too but I don't know. I could think of a few other colors that I would name as the "it" color for 2010 before that shade of tur-qwaz. maybe it's just me!!
