Since tomorrow is August 1, as anyone who has ever visited, lived in or done business with France knows, forget about getting much done in the next thirty days..or until "la rentrée ", when the kids go back to school and the adults trudge back to the workplace!
For one solid month, tout le monde will be on les vacances leaving us here in the New World green with envy for all the time the French have off from work! So while they are at the mountains, by the seashore or on the islands, we here in America can take a vacation from our white-cabinets-stainless-appliances-white-tile-ebonized-floors-kitchens and check out these cuisines a la francaise in what looks to be a seriously trending color over there: le violet (or..purple!)
They made me smile; they made me think of vacation homes. They also made me wonder just a little bit about who is really brave enough to do an entire kitchen in purple?
What do you think?
A liberal use of purple makes a very strong statement
in this contemporary French kitchen!
Fabulous retro-style refrigerator comes in brilliant colors from Gorenje!
Deep aubergine cabinets and island make a rich
and sophisticated statement in this chic urban kitchen..
I do adore these cassis color cabinets by Mobalpa!
Efficient French kitchenette with violet cabinets
tucked into small space looks great!
A purple blender...fun!
Even venerable Emile Henry is in on the
trend with this Fig colored cocotte!
And just to be quite sure you get the point, here
is a very purple Brabantia dust bin!
