Purple in Design
Adding purple accents to a room can spruce up a space and add a vibrant vibe to your room.
Is your room looking a little bland? According to Jamie Drake, adding a touch of purple can really revitalize a space and it's much more versatile than people may think. He'll show how to mix and match shades to make a lively design statement.
The magenta wall color and a wonderful fabric were the starting points to this design. Since brown and purple are both strong colors, they make a bold design statement when put together. To keep the eye moving, he used purple in throw pillows, lampshades and accessories throughout the space.
- People are using purple in two different directions, either as a complete envelope in a room or as accents in the furnishings. Since purple comes in so many shades--from the lightest lavenders to the deepest plums to the brightest magentas--it works well with most colors.
- If you've chosen a dramatic purple and you're worried about a matching color, use a color wheel to select the color directly across from it to find the complementary shade.
