You can call it lilac or lavender if you want to, but I'll never understand why the bathtub is purple in this house for sale in Shelby, Michigan.

Remember Donny Osmond's purple socks? How about the one-eyed, one-eared, flyin' purple people eater? Purple Rain was the title of Prince's biggest album and film. (Only the double-a sided single "1999"/"Little Red Corvette" was a bigger single.) The hue was an obsession for him. Since ancient Roman times, the color purple has been associated with royalty. This purple throne, however, is not on a dais in a castle, but in the bathroom of a Michigan home. Why would you have a purple bathroom?

The house for sale at 4321 Country Club Drive in Shelby, Michigan looks like perfectly normal house. It almost looks like the Brady Bunch could live here. Five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, but purple? I did some digging and apparently, lavender has been a thing since 1927. It's not for me, but maybe you'd like it. Take a look at this house for sale in Metro Detroit.
