Purple Passion Tour Part Deux

As part of my ongoing series on purple rooms in my home, allow me to present my formal living room.This wall color is Grape Mist by Sherwin Williams. This room opens off of the dining room...you know the room with the intense dark purple, so I thought I would dial the color down considerably for this space. I would have given you a pulled back shot, but then I would have had to clean and straighten and we couldn't have that. I mean I started blogging to avoid doing such mundane tasks. LOL! Notice the Easter decor is still up...fast forward to June...it will still be up!

I wanted to give you a more up close view with the Grape Mist contrasted against the white woodwork and the dark picture frame.
And here is a little closer view of the mantle area. Hopefully you can get a feel for the shade this room is. Gee, who knew photographing paint would be such a challenge! On the next post we will be dialing it back up...bring your earplugs.
