"Lavender is ethereal,even spiritual, when used with a controlled,delicate touch, with white, grey and a little black-lacquer perhaps- for structure. Very Colette! It is cloying in nearly any other context, most of which are pretty cliché for lavender rooms: prints, lace, stuffed animals (shudder!)"
"I once saw a very spare, minimal apartment with all walls painted lavender. It was airy, detached, collected, perhaps even more so than if it had white walls." ~ Maureen Footer
