My bedroom has a deep purple accent wall and bedspread. On the bedspread, there is a taupe and brown. So instead of having the furniture be gray, I had the furniture be a dark brown with a gel stain I bought. I accent the room with gold, white and black.

This soft purple accent wall made the rest of my living room pop.

Purple actually resolves the tension that a room full of natural woods or orange tints can have. It's like having a cool rain blow thru on an overheated day.
