Once summer makes its final exit, the nesting instinct takes over. Gone is the search for wide open spaces—in its place, the urge to cozy up inside, amidst warm tones and plush layers. Color, too, takes on a darker hue in the cooler months, and few colors are as deeply satisfying as purple. Glamourous, but accessible, time-tested, but unexpected, purple never fails to make a statement. Our purple gems—Kartell Ghost Stool and Francois Ghost Mirror; Judy Ross Textiles; and rugs from Second Studio and Blu Dot—make royal additions to any home interior, and present a potent antidote to the winter blues.
