Purple people pleaser ...

Plum, grape and eggplant are ingredients in some truly tasty rooms. As you may have picked up in my previous purple posts (here and here), I'm a fan of the royal hue. I even painted my front door purple this spring!

Call me crazy, but my purple passion spins around the color wheel from lavender to eggplant, with plum being one of my three favs. The grayed tone of plum is perfectly suited to a modern vibe.

Then, there is the vibrate purple sibling, grape! With its boisterous charm, it serves as a compelling canvas for art and antiques.

I'm obsessed with purple plaster like that below. If you ever stop to shop in Boerne, Texas, visit Melissa Jeffery Home on Main Street and take a peek at their fabulous plaster walls in the side room. Gorgeous!

Others may look to the pearly gates for ultimate happiness, but I'll be eternally happy in a room with hardwood floors and plastered walls in a deep rich eggplant hue!

I know, I'm drooling. It's just that the antiqued gold frame hung on eggplant walls in the Bellocq Tea House (above) is sending my head spinning.

I love how the light plays with purple and the extent of complimentary colors that live beautifully together.
