My bedroom is pale purple, and I think it just might be my favorite color. I hesitate to write this as purple often finds itself in places that are dusty and Miss Havisham-ish—think dried hydrangeas on a parlor table, next to a lace doily–covered sofa.
But to me, purple is like blue’s sexy sister, bearing mystery and mischief. There’s no better way to tease out the depth of purples than by combining its shades in the garden and in arrangements, from the palest purple of muscari azureum to the darkest purple of black knight scabiosa.
