Purple is symbolic of royalty, nobility, and romance. The combination of hot red and cool blue create the intrigue of this magnificent color. Depending upon the shade you choose, purple can arrive in many varieties, some of which include lavender, eggplant, plum, lilac, royal, and aubergine.

In terms of interior design, purple is actually quite lovely. However, purple is rarely considered as a truly viable option, since it is commonly believed that it does not combine well with other colors. In reality, purple actually marries well with a variety of other lively and neutral colors!

Take a look at a few purple-neutral combinations….
