winter warmers

Maybe its winter and the thought of staying at home with my cats on days like these, or maybe its a shift in my tastes. Either way I seem to be drawn more often than not these days to rooms with warm plummy colours. I was never a fan of purples really, but I certainly seem to be now. It pairs perfectly with chocolates, blueberries and mushrooms. I don't know if I'd paint the whole house this colour, but definitely my bedroom or a small reading room. What do you think?

I often find these colours difficult to work with, preferring a more summery palette, but your examples do give them a fresh lease of life. Love the little library niche with the desk ~ a lovely spot to curl up in to explore the many tomes of wisdom on the shelves.

Give aubergine every day of the week. Any grays tinted with mauve. Thanks for reminding me.
