Purple & Green

My guest bedroom has been giving me a bit of trouble.  The main furniture in the room is a marble topped dresser with green accents and a white brass and iron bed.  I knew that I wanted this room to be a bit more playful but could not decide on the direction.  While talking with my mom she suggested Purple and Green.  No way!- I thought- that's one color short of Mardi Gras.  But after doing some research, I had to admit she was on to something.  The Rio fabric has been one of my favorites for some time and I love it with the periwinkle, as featured in House Beautiful.  I also love the more vibrant purple with the green "Nitik II" by China Seas in the room designed by Christina Murphy Interiors.  I'm sold, what about you???

  1. You could say lavender & sage and it won't sound as Mardi Gras, but it's a pretty combination!

  2. Good thinking! Hope you guys are doing well!

  3. Oh my gosh! How inspiring! I also would have never thought of this color combination for a bedroom. I love it though! So serene, cheerful and inviting!
