Passionate for Purple

Knowing my love of color you'd think it would be difficult for me to choose a favorite, but anyone who is familiar with my work knows that my passion for purple rises above all others! The color in itself can be moody and romantic, flirty and feminine, playful and daring or regal and bold all depending on the hue you choose. From amethyst to aubergine, eggplant, violet, magenta and everything in between, the color is so multi-faceted it deserved  to be featured throughout the month of May. Here are some great color combos and purple places I'm passionate for!

** Purple and green  are a natural combination!

** Trust your color wheel - opposing colors are always complimentary like yellow and purple!
