Purple is an interior decorator's ticket to adding drama to a scheme. As these images demonstrate, this is not often a colour of sublety. That said, it can look fantastic and is at its best when used in dining rooms and, somewhat surprisingly, kitchens. My top tip for using purple would be to either be brave and hit your room with a punch of the jewel-like colour (1, 11) or just use as a surprise accent (4, 7). My favourite purple schemes are the kitchens (2, 6) - I think it's the unexpected nature of purple being used in them. Have you, or would you, decorate with purple?
