A Purple Peek


Here is a small peek at the room we painted eggplant--it's in one of our bathrooms and I am really loving it.

The room is almost finished except for a shower curtain.  I will show you the whole thing when we get it completed.

I love the way the eggplant color brought out all the purple in this picture that was already in there.  The walls were a sea foam green before and strongly emphasized the green in the picture.

The color itself was quite pretty but the fixtures are gray and the gray and green looked too much the same--actually looked like someone had tried to match it and missed--not attractive at all.  The strong purple calms down the gray and makes it look more creamy--more neutral.

I have lots more to show you but it is going to be a while.  We have several things going in several rooms and none of it completed.

We're looking forward to having it all done but a lot of the fun comes from the process and the hard work that it requires.

Hope you are having a great week.

Love,
Dianne

I have always loved all shades in the purple and lavender family. This is really beautiful and I adore that picture. I love decorating and remodeling, much to my dear husband's chagrin.
Love you~

That is such a soft and peaceful color.

That's a beautiful color! I have been round the mulberry bush for two weeks trying to choose a color of BEIGE. I can't even imagine having such a great eye that I could pick an eggplant that was so lovely.

I guess it's the artist in you that gives you the eye.
