My Favorite Color

For as long as I can remember purple has been my favorite color. I was flipping through In Style and Metropolitan Home magazines recently (I’m a magazine junkie and could easily spend hours upon hours reading magazines…) and in each one I found pictures of purple things — for the home, your closet, your nails, purple, purple, purple.

These pictures got me thinking about my love of purple and if/where it was in my home or wardrobe. No purple in my spring/summer closet and just one turtle neck sweater in my winter items. Not good! I'm making a note to buy purple this fall. Not bright, full-saturation purple, but deep shades of plum and eggplant. They would look good in my closet, don’t you think?

Then came my home. For a minute I thought it was a purple-free zone. That wouldn’t be good. How can I not have my favorite color in my home? Then I remembered! I have purple in my bathroom — in the shower curtain and rugs. Phew.

This purple mixer really makes me happy, too. Purple in the kitchen… now that’s a great idea.

The purple stripes on my shower curtain are mixed with some green, orange, yellow and blue (on the curtain, but just with green on the rugs), and it sounds ugly, I know (as I’m typing it I realize just how ugly it sounds.), but I promise your it’s not! It’s a dark, deep purple. I was quite happy when I realized I have my favorite color somewhere in my house. You should be surrounded by your favorite colors, colors you LOVE.

Are you? What is your favorite color and is it in your home? Your closet? There are so many shades of every color that surely you can find one that you love enough to look at every day or wear once in a while.

And while I have you thinking happy thoughts about your favorite color go ahead and send me a comment (just hit that “comment” button) and tell me your favorite color. I love you guys, but you have not been commenting lately or answering my questions! This one is easy…don’t make me beg, I’m busy reading magazines!
