Purple Decor - Rustic Living Room SceneI dare you to open your latest homewares mag and find a spread - or even a page - that's laden with purple. I've tried this and I can assure you it's no easy task. It seems this misunderstood hue is often left behind when it comes to interior styling - and having spent time last week looking at colour psychology, the omission of purple decor from the mags has been playing on my mind. Today I'm paying homage to this hue and giving you a little inspiration to use it in your own home (and figuring out why it has been so neglected).

Low Maintenance Garden - Succulents in Terracotta PotsPlants are that demanding sometimes that I just lose interest in trying to keep them going all the time. Short of having a courtyard that resembles a cement museum, I had to find some low maintenance garden greenery to give my garden a low-budget pop. Half-an-hour in Flower Power was all it took to get these hardy babies a new home (and they're still alive!). Total spend on plants and soil was around $60.
