Pretty Purple

I’m surprising myself with a colour I’ve been using a bit more than I normally would: purple, and all shades of it. Violet, mauve, lilac, raisin, you name it. I think it’s because it looks great with grey — it adds a feminine and sophisticated touch to often cold tones of grey. Plus, it enlivens a grey room without adding too much colour. What’s your favourite shade of purple?
