Violet. A violet area rug may seem like an unlikely choice, particularly in a dining room, but it makes for a wonderful conversation piece. Violet is actually a very cozy and inviting color that looks even more welcoming when paired with warm wood tones. Complement your violet area rug with a warm white wall color.Paint color to try: Whisper White by Behr
Here’s a nice example of how to use Radiant Orchid in a room, via an area rug. Because it’s rather bold, the color packs a nice punch when used as an accent through furnishings and accessories.
Pairing yellow woods with purple accents (color wheel opposites) is a sly way to play up their bolder notes.
An entire shelving unit in a pale shade of purple may seem kind of startling. But it works when paired with complementary yellow and natural wood floors.The oranges and yellows in wood grain play off purple, which lies in the opposite position on the color wheel.
