As far as color goes, I've long turned my nose up at purples, lilacs and plums. Yet here I am suddenly craving amethyst in my life. Will it be plum pillows, a vintage velvet ottoman or just a bouquet? I'm not certain, but I assure you there will be some of this yummy jewel tone in my life - soon.
Designer Alex Papachristidis assures me this will indeed be a decision I don't regret. See his swanky (and royally decked out) Manhattan pad. More is more is clearly the mantra, and I'm surprised to say that I'm sort of digging it. Purple, plum, amethyst and all.
