Hot or Not: The color Purple

Hot or Not: The color Purple

One of my male co-workers is so obsessed with The Big Lebowski that he decided to paint his living room the exact shade of purple of Jesus Quintana's jumpsuit. He also attends Lebowskifests, says things like, "Yeah well, you know, that's just like your opinion man", and collects Nixon bowling posters for his cubicle.

To be honest, I was a wee bit skeptical on his paint choice--not because of the Lebowski reference (love the movie), but because I was thinking it might turn his living room into one giant eggplant. But after perusing a recent issue of Domino, I was pleasantly surprised to see the color purple given its due: the room looks pretty damn good, especially paired with that light pink room just beyond the doorway.

What do you think? Should purple be relegated to little girl's rooms and pastel shades, or is it worthy for a living room?
