I love a deeply hued painted wall. And I love purple as evidenced by former writing that I have done. I do not, think nor have I ever thought, to paint a wall purple, but this one is making me think that I need to do it. I'm sitting in a blue room now. One that also has a blue ceiling. I saw it in a magazine and decided to copy it. I've been very happy with it. It may be too large a space to do purple. The turquoise that I can see through the door in the photograph is the color of my bathroom. I use browns, primarily, to compliment it, but the red, seen on the chair through the doorway, really looks lush against the turquoise. And in the purple room, red appears as well. Between my blue and turquoise, I have red ... though, it's more of a deep raspberry color. I tried a truer red once in the kitchen, but I didn't like the look of it. I was trying for a weathered, old barn look and got something else. I like to paint, but I wouldn't say that I have a great talent for it.
I'll tape this photo to the collage that I sit in front of every time I sit at me desk. Who knows, maybe it will stick into my psych and dare me to go purple.
