Purple is one of those colors that can either be masculine or feminine, a big reason why I am so drawn to this color. And it’s so rich, vibrant and is also associated with royalty. However, some of us may think its a bit much, you can easily tone down the purple volume by using neutrals or grays to soften it down a bit.

Here’s some fabulous purple interiors and decorative accents pieces that I thought you’d enjoy or maybe get some inspiration from.

From a old issue of January Better Homes and Garden, there is just so many different beautiful shades of purple.

I’m a big fan of purple but it really does come off stunningly and quite unique when used correctly in interior spaces.
