When it comes to colors, I prefer a Fall palette. Spring colors may be fun and vibrant, but Fall colors compliment my personal style. One Fall color that I find myself continually drawn toward is a deep plum shade.
While I love wearing plum, I wasn’t sure about how well it translates in the home. An immediate image popped in my head of a poor quality plum sheet set (remember- white linens only!). When the quality of the fabric is poor, plum does not reflect well. When you get a rich and luxe texture of plum, the results are opulent, refined, and classically chic. Here are some great images that demonstrate just how perfect plum really can be.

Plum and green are a striking combination. How dramatically divine.
