If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that I’m often inspired by what I’m eating, and this week’s Color Friday is no exception. I could feature tomato red (already done it) or golden summer corn (I talk about yellow a lot) but I felt like those were colors I’ve covered at length. So I looked a little further into my fruit bowl and decided on the plum: it features the perfect blend of colors ranging from purple to orange to cream in a single little sphere of summer.
For my round-up this week, I’ve tried to source items that capture little parts of “plummyness.” For example, the Well-Rounded Raj chair from Wisteria has a purple seat so deep and dark that it evokes the purple blackness of the untouched plum for me. David Rockwell’s Spotlight rug, on the other hand, really gets at the part of the plum where the skin meets the flesh in that tiny little band of shocking pink. I love these pieces, and I hope you have a little room for them in your home!
Have a great weekend, and stay out of the heat if you can! You can find the recipe for the Plum Granita pictured above at Matt Bites…the perfect weekend project to beat the heat!
