Violet Eyes and All That

Like so many of you, I was saddened to hear of Liz Taylors death last week.  She certainly aged gracefully, but I will still remember her young and beautiful with her violet eyes.

Even with all her beauty, I suspect that her eyes were the first thing you noticed when you met her....that COLOR!

Violet is an unusual color....not really purple, but a shade of....not really blue, but a shade of.....not really pink, but a shade of!  I think it's a color that is a bit polorizing....not everyone loves it, but those that do are huge fans.  (My mother always said it was a funeral color!  Yikes...that's a lot of baggage to hang on a color!)

I thought it might be fun to see what I could find in interiors in Violet.  
What do you think about using violet in your home?

  1. Hi Sally, these are lovely. My favorite is the Emily Walker with the touch of yellow added. Have a great week. Mona

  2. I love a little bit of violet in a room. Beautiful photos! Liz was such an icon and elegant woman.

  3. I think I would tend more towards a richer purple although I painted my daughter's bunk beds in violets and it looks fantastic. My mom always says lillies are funeral flowers. Another harsh aspersion:)
