Violet & Neutrals:
Decorating with Violet. Violet is combination of red and blue, which makes it difficult. The balance is what’s difficult. Red is a strong color, Blue is more palatable. Depending on what you add things will sparkle and shine or be not quite right. So adding one lilac, violet, lavender in a room that is completely neutral except for one piece, sofa, chair, carpet makes it doable, livable. (above) The purple geometric pattern in the carpet is color repetition which makes for cohesiveness. The blue chair works, because blue is a component of purple. They are related. More from Pantone
