The Color Purple

It's color month at Ohdeedoh and it's got me thinking about a color I'm starting to see crop up more and more in the home. I'm talking about the color purple. Admittedly, it's a hard color to use in large amounts. But when done right, it's truly eye catching.

The room pictured above is from the home of designer David Kaihoi in New York City's East Village (see the whole home on House Beautiful). If purple walls, windows, trim, upholstery and textiles is too much for you, you can just dabble in a little purple. For example, Stokke introduced a purple Tripp Trapp highchair last month which is a perfect opportunity for using a small amount of purple in your home.
