We have hit peak purple: you can’t deny that the dynamic shades of violet can create a bold setting. It may even inspire you to hum the tunes by the iconic singer, Prince. If you need to trail-blaze into a trend, you need to direct your attention to the colour palette of the season – Deep Purple. We pick five ways you can work this gorgeous shade into your home.

Wonder Wall
Crimson and deep purple are both bold and yet beautiful shades. The trick here would be to watchfully put together the colours and blend it in context with the space. It lends an impact of other vibrant hues on the tablescape, creating a perfect blend of colours.

Blend the Upholstery
A deep shade of purple translates into neutral yet rich in this patio. Adding printed cushions and furnishings makes this porch-swing exude a laidback vibe. The combination of deep purple and planters in the backdrop gives the space a carefree beach-like composition.

Royal Exuberance
Can we all agree that purple and white can enhance a setting in the best of ways? The purple furniture adds life to the neutral space, the furniture and accents enhance the set up in the living space. While the gentle run rays brighten up the entire room in the day, the candles, lamps, and chandelier, perfectly light up the place at night.

Layers and Textures
Plummy dark settings are making a comeback this year. Head straight into fall –the colour scheme of purples and oxblood red sets a romantic backdrop to the plush upholstery and Elizabethan walls.

Monochromatic Decor
It’s time to ditch the millennial pink after all. Incorporate multiple hues of purple (think shade card) into the decor of your home – tied together by the soft neutral tone of grey.
