Setting the Tone

Setting the tone for a flattering color to complement the spring green around us. Purple is one of those colors that I am always attracted to. With its commanding presence, I prefer it in limited quantities. 

A fabulous purple marmorino plaster wall

The patterned rug reflects the purple wall nicely.

Accessorize with an amethyst silk plaid throw and amethyst curtains

Loving the purple throw in this serene bedroom

Grape purple with red and cream- a fresh, unusual combination

Love the metallic purple ceiling- a perfect touch

And, of course, Mark Rothko does it with purple!
