Touches of Purple

By Kate Riley April 25, 2016

All of us fans are still mourning the loss of Prince, he was one of the icons that was so much a part of our generation. As Jimmy Fallon stated in his tribute on Saturday Night Live, “He had his own color, he owns purple.” It was everywhere, on his guitars, his clothing, and we all know the famous song.

The color purple is not used as often as it should be as an accent in my opinion. I’m not a huge fan of saturated crayon purple in decor, but I love muted lilac and rich plum, especially when paired with gray and gold. Purple has such an elegant quality when done right. Today’s post is dedicated to the the color purple and Prince, he will be missed.
