In the seating area of a lofty master bedroom suite, this bold shade of mauve was used to playfully mediate between the cold, gray tone of the concrete floor and the warm, silver-brown tone of the leather club chairs. Good example that mauve, when done right, can be masculine and un-1980s. Yeah, it looks purple; however, it was I who did this space and I assure you the paint name included the word "mauve." Okay?
If Mauve's not the gal you wanna bring home to meet Mom (either as a roommate or a love interest), she's got a great-looking older sister, Violet. The royal shade is often bolder than mauve and works as a great base to build from when interested in using our featured color in small doses. Other accent colors ideal for this space would be hot pink, turquoise, coral and grass green.
