Purple is my favorite color. However, it never crossed my mind to paint my living room walls with purple. For me, it is a bold choice and if not done properly, the result could be disastrous and unappealing. But when I stumbled upon pictures of very attractive purple living rooms, I was convinced that purple could definitely be a good choice for creating an inviting and beautiful living room.
The greatest advantage of using purple as the color scheme for your living room is the the availability of numerous shades of purple. You can choose from different values of light and dark, and tonal ranges between blue and red within the purple color scheme.
Lighter and bluer shades of purple can help you create a living room that is very relaxing. This is ideal for warmer climates. On the other hand, warmer shades of purple, such as those that are darker or look more red, can create an inviting place especially in cold climates.
Purple also blends well with other colors. Gold highlights or focal points are often used to compliment a purple living room. In addition, other colors, especially black and white can be combined with purple beautifully.
When using purple, be aware that the wide range of shades of purple can also fireback. Using too many shades of purple in a space could ultimately lead to a bizarre rainbow of purples that never quite come together visually.
