Few colours generate such an extreme response as purple. You either love it, or hate it. Accordingly you’re either going to love or hate the interiors featured in this blog post. Quite why I’ve recently had such a flurry of purple interiors to shoot I can’t be sure, but if a sudden trend emerges, you know where you saw it first. Usually the colour only appears quite sparingly, the curtains, or a lampshade perhaps, and probably restricted to one room. However, there’s a house in South London belonging to Interior Designer, Natalya Nesterova, where the moment you walk up the garden path, the colour is evident, and continues to make an impact inside. Apparently it all started with a kitchen appliance that Natalya bought for her husband.
Meanwhile in a Surrey country house, Stephen Ryan has designed this rich and cosy library.
And in this house in the New Forest, Frances Horn has mixed purple and plum to dramatic effect in the living room, and included a dramatic purple wall in the bathroom.
Natalya’s purple home currently appears in the october edition of Real Homes Magazine.
