Alkemie - A little taste of Design Heaven

Featured Blog

If you want to see some of the most beautiful designer rooms out there then you must pop on over to Alkemie.
Perusing Karen Olivia's blog is a full out "designer-studded" event saturated with beautiful photos with colour, style, and texture for all tastes. And it's not only a great resource for home decor inspiration but she also links to other fabulous blogs to do with art, fashion, books, and event planning (to name just a few).

In keeping with my "Ode to Stripes" post earlier today, here are some photos Karen posted here of designer David Carter's 40 Winks boutique hotel in London.

We also share a great love for the colour purple! Below are some examples of GORGEOUS contemporary, eclectic, and glamourous purple rooms that can be found here at Alkemie.

The bold printed carpet looks spectacular with the dark purple walls. The yellow
definitely adds a lot of punch as well.

Lovely accessories.

LOVE this! The purple walls and natural linens are a gorgeous combination.

So pretty

Purple is the colour of royalty - would you not feel like a Queen sleeping in
this room?!


In love with that headboard! It's a room for a princess :)

Many shades of purple...

I think I've died and gone to Purple Heaven!!!
