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!
