"I always wanted a lilac bedroom and went through a lot of shades before I found this one. The gray in it adds sophistication and takes it to a quiet, dreamy place. For accent colors, I chose earthy browns and creams, which have a serene effect and bring out the purple. If you pair it with brighter colors, it can get too juvenile and sweet." —Rinat Lavi Benjamin Moore Regal Select Winter Gray 2117-60 - HouseBeautiful.com
A Beautiful Backdrop Color - "The first words out of my client's mouth were 'I love the color purple.' Such an exotic, unusual place to start! She loves Pucci, painted furniture, and parties. This purple is a beautiful backdrop. Any flowers look great against it-- and so do people." -Hal Williamson Color:Sea Froth 2107-60 from Benjamin Moore.
