Purple Easter inspiration

Lavender, mauve, fuchsia, purple, aubergine, plum; different shades and intensities of blue and red mixed together. This colour family was popular last fall and continues to feel right for the spring, in clothing, accessories and at home. (At Stix and Stones fashion show last week, I saw absolutely stunning knitted pieces in bright purple!).

Introduce a wow factor in your traditional home with a shiny, purple area rug (inspiration: Marilyn Denis's dining room, House and Home). The colour looks fantastic with gold and brass, and combines well with sophisticated greys.

Or why not try a pale lavender slipcover in your cottage? Or some funky purple/mauve/plum glass bottles as accessories if you have a more contemporary space?

And for all of you who want to play it safe: the odd accent pillow will also do the trick. Have a lovely, purple Easter!
