A pop of purple
Even if the weather has been less than spring-like, I'm still striving to embrace the season (while sporting a wool coat).
And part of that means pulling in more pops of colour around my space as I go through my seasonal deep clean - fresh tulips in the kitchen, new tchotckes on my (newly installed!) shelves and, even, a little friendly pop of colour in my fridge.
Admittedly, meal preperation and stowing groceries aside, I don't spend a whole lot of time peering into my fridge. I never thought about making it prettier inside (so long as it's clean.)
But then I saw the "rich aubergine" Mavea water pitcher, and, well, because I'm a sucker for anything purple, I just had to have it.
In addition to looking pretty in my fridge -- and on my table, where it's often sitting waiting to be refilled -- the pitcher also has a handy digital display reminding me when it's time to change the filter (I always forget) and a sort of "trap door" in the top, so you don't have to remove the lid to fill it.
But really, I got one because it's pretty.
It's also available in sage green, black, white and red for $39.99, at retailers Williams Sonoma, Sears, The Bay and Home Outfitters.
