A grocery store clerk recently complimented my skirt/sweater combo and told me that mauve was her favorite color. I wasn't sure what one had to do with the other, but I thanked her politely, took my 40 foot long receipt (seriously, the length of grocery receipts is ridiculous), and went on my way. I'm not exactly sure what to call the prominent pinkish hue in this ensemble. "Salmon pink" is my best description, though Pantone probably calls it something else. But of this I am sure - it is NOT mauve.

When we moved into our current home, it was a mecca of mauve. Mauve tiles on the great room fireplace; metallic mauve flowers on the wall; mauve stained glass in the ceiling fan; mauve stripes in the puffy 1980s balloon valances; mauve blinds on every window; even the felt on the pool table was mauve (seriously, a mauve pool table). Bet you can guess the first thing I changed about the house...No.More.Mauve!
