At one time, my mother had the living room painted in the last three shades of purple - each wall a different color. It worked beautifully with walnut furniture in a Scandinavian, spare design. The carpeting was a brown that matched the walnut, and the sofa was upholstered in textured black. Her collection of blue and amethyst glass bottles picked up the wall colors. This really worked!
Simplicity and balance at its best concept of glamour... Italian marble tile, unframed round mirrors and glamorous black crystal sconces make this the perfect guest powder room (of course there would be only one washstand). ~ La Dolce Vita: Dream Home: The Purple Bow
