Soon, retailers will be churning out all things red-violet, but if you want to get a jump on the trend, here are a few pretties in this awesome shade:

Heliotrop Mongolian Lamb Throw Pillow from Lamps Plus, $185 (free shipping).

Purple Round Venya Scalloped Frame from World Market, $9.99.

Flip-Side Quilt and Sham from Garnet Hill, $38.00 – $168.00.

Bravo Metal Swivel Stools from Grandin Road, $49 on sale (reg. $199!).

Contemporary Cotton Pink/ Purple Square Pillows from Overstock, $53.99/pair.
