The Colour Purple

Rucola, 59 Apsley Rd, Bristol BS8 2SW +44 (0)117 973 4892

Everywhere I went on my recent trip to Bristol, I was met by shades of the colour purple. Lilacs. Lavenders. Violets. Plums. Aubergines. Bristolians everywhere were wearing it. The white Bristol buses were decorated with pink and purple stripes. We saw purple artwork on the walls of a restaurant. Even the guys seemed to favour pale lilac coloured shirts.

Rucola has a reputation for good breakfast and brunch. We just stopped in one morning for tea, coffee and a couple of hours of gossiping with my mum's ex work colleagues. The decor struck me. The shades of plum and lavender were beautiful. Check out the designers here.

(Did I come back to the USA with something new and purple for my wardrobe? Oh, maybe. Thanks mum!)

    More than any coulour, purple is THE English coulour...It's one of the first synthetic coulour ( after Prussian Blue) to be created. That tint was very popular during the Victorian period, and still part of the English culture maybe?

    Plum is one of my favourite coulours and your wear it beautifully!
