“Life is like a box of crayons. 
Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. 
I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. 
It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. 
I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. 
Does anyone else have that problem? 
I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. 
So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type…I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! And she’s like, oh, you mean purple! And she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!” 
― John Mayer

Beside the fireplace is one of two purple upholstered chairs that Kim scored at a Paris flea market and has had for more than 15 years. “They’ve worked in every home I’ve ever had,” she says. “They’re the perfect example of ‘buy what you love.’”
