By now most of us know that turquoise is the color of the year for 2010.
But grape is the lovely runner up.
perch. has a new purple chandelier in the house!
It's glass and very high style.
It would look fabulous as the only purple element in a room, even if you just have white walls.
Color expert Maria Killam says the color "Mardi Grape", a sophisticated crossover between purple, brown, and gray iis going to be widely used in fashion and home decor. Purple has been with us for awhile, but the brown and gray tones of Mardi Grape makes purple usable as a neutral.
You can go all out and paint an entire room purple.
You can dip your toe in the water and choose a lighter tone and do an accent wall.
Style maven Lynda from the blog Focal Point used purple in a sophisticated table setting (shown above).
Accesories are always a sure fire way to add a bit of a trend.
However you decide to go, just give it a try.
Change is good, and color is the quickest and easy way to make a change.
Whether you r room is trad or mod, a little infusion of purple will add energy and elegance.
So from New Orleans, we wish you a Happy Mardi Grape!
