CRANBERRY AND PURPLE
I'm loving how these two colors interelate. Cranberry is the shade my favorite lipstick and citrus. Purple is one of those colors with so many different variations. Like blue and green you'll find a real range of monochromatics to play with. It's a color associated most with flowers (Violets, lavender, lilacs), sunsets and in some cases, water. Purple was once the color of high clergy and royalty because only the nobles could afford the dyes that once upon a time were so hard to come by. Purple was one of the colors I incorporated into the scheme of my own wedding. The family tartan was green, purple and yellow which made for an interesting palette.
