Challenging Myself with Color

In my suburban Christmas home from The Domineaux Effect, I tinted the walls in each room to reflect the theme of that space.

I prefer warm, natural, autumny colors and started to decorate, but found myself in the same rut.

Working outside my comfort zone, I thought I would pick a color at random for my bedroom and got the color - purple, plum, violet, mulberry, pansy, thistle, orchid, etc.  This is not a color I would choose to work with, but I gave it my best shot and i'm kinda pleased with how it turned out.

One interesting item of note:  I wanted a dressing table, but couldn't find one that fit my vision.  I took a $1 L table from Bazar (Good morning set), unlinked it and modified the size, then added Wrought Iron Mirrors from THE LOFT (size reduced) and got the exact look i was after.
