    I love the design – see my Yellow/Pink Review – but this is a less assured colour combination. Contrast is not quite as strong as the image implies, and in places blurred edges between pigments also detract (check the diagonals on the bow-ties).

    That said, remembering my colour theory*, I contrasted the Purple with it’s perfect complimentary colour (Green) in a small Water-Well design, and used the Purple High-Life as the lining… ooh’s and aah’s, and statements of love come from all directions!

    *My hot-tip for colour theory is Josef Albers’ “Interaction of Colour” (his wife Anni Albers was a leading Textile designer in the 20C, due to have a retrospective at the Tate this year…)
