Dark, moody colors can be just as difficult to work with as bright and bold ones, but they’re just as wonderful. The charcoal gray and deep purple here, accented with pale lavender, would be lovely in winter or fall, don’t you think? 

Palette: charcoal gray, lavender, purple plum

    I am not plums biggest fan, but your did an amazing job with this color palette! I’m highly reconsidering adding plum back on my likes list ;)
