Amethyst and the color purple

 

I just opened the September issue of  House Beautiful and discovered the color amethyst  in their Everywhere We Look column. 

Sound / look familiar? (See my post on July 7th below…)

Turns out that the folks in Pompei in the first century also liked the color amethyst. This photo is of a wall from Pompei (now in the Met):

Also in the same issue, there was an interesting Q & A article called “Confessions of a House Painter” on page 56.  His answers were spot on!
