Paint Color Portfolio: Purple-Brown Bedrooms

Sep 24, 2013

I've been unable to find a word adequate to describing these beautiful purple-brown hues. Not quite eggplant, not quite taupe, they inhabit some luscious middle ground. These purple-browns can add more depth to a room than a standard chocolate or lavender, thanks to the way that they elegantly shift in tone as the light waxes and wanes, at times seeming gray, at others cocoa, and at others still, a deep purple. Rich, sophisticated, and luxurious, they provide a backdrop suitable to both your most restful and seductive bedroom pursuits.
