Living Room Color???

What colors look best with purple

March 18, 2011

Siti from Kuala Terengganu asks...
I am having real trouble finding a color scheme that works best with the furniture I currently have. I have a deep purple chair, black sofa and black/brown tables. I want to brighten my living room and I am not afraid of color. However, I don’t want it to look tacky or childish. I also, would prefer not to have purple as the main color. Please help!
Thank you,

Purple is rich and regal. As such, if you think of all things royal you will find purple in varying combinations with reds, blues, golds & whites – very grown-up. For a more contemporary look, yellow-green and purple make for a great combination. If you would like something more subdued, a light grey with a violet undertone will work. Still stuck? The great outdoors display all the colour combinations you can imagine so take a walk in a garden in bloom, seek out your purple and see what Mother Nature has paired it with for inspiration.
