As the new year approaches, it's time to pick a purple palette (now try saying that three times fast)! There's no denying that purple is the "it" color in the home sector, with both color authorities Pantone and Color Marketing Group predicting this hue to be bigger than ever in 2014. If you're having trouble incorporating this stylish shade in your own home, take a look at some of the helpful tips suggested by the Denver Post.
- Contrast is key: To add visual balance to your room, contrast purple with complementary colors. Before you begin, determine what type of mood you'd like your room to exude. If you're going for tranquility in your bedroom, a neutral gray is your go-to. However, if you want a vibrant living room, complement purple with green or magenta accents.
- Experiment with texture: Bringing textural elements to your room can also give it pizzazz. Try adding curtains and drapes to your ambiance—which can be purchased in various materials, ranging from velvet to silk. Browse our online selection!
- Location, location, location: "Before you slather the new color on the walls of your home, consider where you live," reports the news source. "Certain colors that play well in Latin America, for instance, look garish in Minnesota. When the Southwest palette of terra cotta and turquoise was big, the strong colors made sense in Phoenix, but had to be paler, washed out and weathered, to work in Schenectady."
