While orange in home décor is the most misunderstood, purple may be the most feared.
However, there's no need to be shaking in those boots.
Since there's various shades of purple ranging from very soft to royal bold, you can choose what works best for you. Also, don't think purple is just for bedrooms either, you'll be surprised just what you can do with a living room decked out in purple.
Still have doubts? Then, scroll to the bottom of this page to see the collection of rooms decorated in different shades of purple.
Before Decorating with Purple Make One of These Three Decisions:
1. You only want to add a little purple to your space
2. You want a more sophisticated look in your purple room
3. You want the room to have a deep rich look of purple
Let's Discuss How to Use Purple Based Upon Points 1,2, and 3
Just a Little Purple in Your Living Room:
Start by adding a touch of soft yellow. Why soft yellow? Because yellow is a complimentary color to purple and will help the small amounts of purple you add, to pop.
Add the yellow to a feature wall. Then add a lightly pattern neutral drape that contains both the yellow and purple. Keep your couch a neutral color, like white, then add two accent chairs in a medium toned purple (slightly darker).
Finish the space off by adding multiple pillows in a combination of the purples and yellow featured in the space. Mix the pillows up with solids and patterns.
A More Sophisticated Look Using Purple:

Start by painting a feature wall in a lighter purple-grey shade.
You can paint more than one wall. If you're color-brave go ahead and paint the whole room in that color.
Next choose a couch in a solid charcoal grey color, and choose accent chairs that are closer to the lighter grey-purple you've painted the walls.
For your drapes, bring in a third neutral color like a light tan or beige.
Finally, end the look with pillow accessories but use darker shades of purple on a few solid color cushions and then choose patterns for the others that have both a mix of light purple-grey and tans.
A Deep Rich Braver Attack of Purple in Your Living Room:
So you're gutsy and ready to go all out purple. First choose a deep rich violet purple for a large feature wall. Or better yet, on a fireplace wall.
Next go with the same or similar rich purple that you chose for the wall for the couch. For the drapes continue with the bold theme by using a deep pink-purple.
For the accent chairs, you'll need a neutral tone, and believe it or not, a lovely burnt orange will work. Lastly, bring all the shades you've included in the room into various plain and patterned pillows.
