Why You Should Decorate with Purple Next

Purple decor is hot. Here's how to work it into your decorating plans for a look that's stylish and livable.

Decorating with purple always produces wow worthy results. Here are three ways to play with purple. If you are looking to add just a little purple, start with a foundation of warm yellows. Since they are complimentary colors, yellow will make even the smallest amounts of purple pop. Add a pattern that contains both yellow and purple, like here. Then, make a splash with a medium purple tone, like these chairs. Complete the look with accessories. If you are going for more sophisticated look, pair purple with everyone's favorite, neutral gray. Start by painting the walls with a light purplish gray, then go gray on the room's other big elements. Bounce between dark shades, like charcoal, and lighter shades, like cloud. Use a purple similar to your wall color on accent chairs. Carry the color scheme in darker shades with accessories. Ready to go all out purple? Use a rich shade, like deep violet on the walls. And follow suit on your sofa. Balance the color with a shade of pink purple, like cherry blossom. Then, add a flair of burnt orange, which will serve as a neutral. Include a pattern or two that contains all your main colors to tie the look together. Whether you go big or go small, adding purple gives your room a fun, new personality.
