Purple is Surprisingly Flexible
Purple includes a wide range of colors, from the lightest, soft lilac to bold and bright violet – and everything in between. It is a surprisingly flexible color and goes well with many decorating styles.
Purple teams beautifully with many neutrals, including cream, light gray, white, eggshell, brown and black. You can even add just a touch of purple to a neutral paint color, so the finishing result seems like beige or cream or light gray, yet has an extra pizazz.
Depending on the shade of purple you select, you can create a variety of feelings from soft and soothing to passionate, vibrant and magical.
If you’re nervous about adding such a passionate color to your home, think small: glassware, stoneware, table linens, vases, throw pillows, flowers, a small upholstered chair, paint on a small accent wall or wallpaper.
Purple can add a quirky or whimsical touch, and we all know that traditionally, it’s a rich and royal color that can add sophistication and luxury to your home décor.
Accent colors that work well with purple include red, blue, ochre, aqua, teal, spring green, pink and yellow.
Be bold and add your favorite shade of purple to your home décor!
