Today as I look back and remember hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor and the numerous films she has starred in since the 1940’s I become inspired as I work on a color scheme for a dining room I am putting together for a client. I think back to her role in Cleopatra and fall in love with the beautiful jewel tones set against her flawless, almost perfect ivory skin.   The combination of the kelly green in her blouse, the blue from her eyes and the hint of glossy peach on her lips is strikingly beautiful against the white textured shirt Richard Burton is wearing:
