Home colour Grape or Plum ?

Grape or Plum ?

by greenrabbitdesigns

Not sure if this wonderful autumnal colour is grape or plum but what I am sure of is that it is really lovely. I’ve found myself drawn to it this week with my knitting and crochet. It goes so well with mustard yellow, pale green and grey.

I noticed last weekend lovely shops like White Stuff and Avoca had so many clothes in these colours (so many that I wanted) !!! There are lots of home furnishings in these shades this season as well.

All this inspired me to create an Etsy Treasury which I entitled “Grape or Plum ?”

Hope you enjoy looking at it and checking out all the lovely shops as much as I enjoyed creating it.

I always love people discussing colour…it is so individual and boils down to how our brain interprets the messages! I think I call this grape as to me plum is a really dark rich reddish purple…but hey that’s just my brain talking! That was a beautiful Treasury Vivienne and thanks for including my pretty in purple necklace…so should we be talking purple even ;0)
Enjoy your festive knitting class, Mia and I are managing to pull you along towards “C” time, tee hee. I will love to see your end results and fingerless mitts are so ” now” !!
Have a wonderful weekend,

Hmmmm grape or plum, it is a tricky one! I think maybe grape… or pale plum, how about that, as it is not quite as dark or rich as I would usually term plum! The treasury looks great, I do like all the different shades of purple – I must admit I do like purple – one of my favourite tops is a deep purple, although I rarely use it in my design work (card commission on my blog being the exception!) Am looking forward to joining Etsy so I can start creating treasuries too – looks along the same lines as creating pinterest boards, yay! Have a great weekend, enjoy your festive knitting! Jenny xx

I love your yarn colour, it could be grape or plum, depending on which variety! I’ve noticed that colour around a lot this autumn and have treated myself to a new cardy in a purply shade of plum/grape. I love the Greengate textiles in those shades as well. Your little basket looks so delightful filled to the brim, and I love the pattern you are making. Looking forward to hearing about your festive workshop! Have a lovely weekend. Helen x

Some lovely grape or plum things!!! As I am working at a vineyard I think I would say the colours are more grape like!!! Have a lovely weekend Viv and enjoy the knitting workshop! x

Grape or plum, your basket of beautiful things is just gorgeous! Fabulous colour, thanks for a little ping of happiness….

I’d say mostly grape, with a splash of plum, and all really lovely 😀

Your lovely basket of yarns looks good enough to eat, whether grape or plum. Have a great weekend and enjoy your knitting workshop. xx

I’m not sure whether that delicious colour is plum or grape but I know my mouth is watering.

Debbie Abrahams? How wonderful. I’ve got one of her books and I find her squares fairly addictive. Have a lovely time, Vivienne and please come back and tell us about the course.

Lovely, that’s one of my favourite colours plum/grape. The knitting looks great, I hope you have a super time at the fingerless glove workshop.
I’ve succumbed to turning the central heating on off after a sharp frost yesterday but typical, it’s going to be a bit milder over the weekend!
Have fun, x

Amanda October 22, 2011 - 3:23 am

I’m not a big fan of purple but I love your treasury so I will call it plum 🙂 Hope your class is fun!

gosh what a tempting basket of goodies and a beautiful treasury to match, thank you so much for adding my bunting to it x
enjoy your class
love jooles x

That treasury is my favorite, Viv! Not only 😉 I’m in (thank you thank you thank you) but also because of those beautiful shades of plum-grape you’ve chosen! And that basket looks so beautiful too, I cannot wait to see what will be coming of those. All those are my sister’s absolute favorite colors/shades too so if anything should find its way to your shop…C-shopping is near!

Happiest weekend!

It´s a lovely color and feels like it fits the fall mood in the best of ways! Oh my, I really need to begin some chrochet soon – it´s been too long since my last project!

I love that colour, grape or plum. Perfect for this time of year and as you so rightly say .. gorgeous with grey (which, as you rightly know! I love).

Have a great weekend and knitting time

Oh my, I can’t be THIS far behind in my Green Rabbit reading, can I?! I’m so far behind in all my favorite reads … still haven’t caught up since Market. I must show my daughters the adorable kittens. On second thought, maybe not … I might actually be persuaded to get one! Missed you. 😉 Love the Scandinavian knitting too. Wish I could do that.
