Violet is a fabulously versatile colour that is been used in a vast array of period and contemporary interior designs.

If your someone who shies away from more bold colour choices then why not introduce a small yet eye-catching area of colour that can be easily adopted into your current interior colour scheme. Occasional chairs, pouffes and stools are a great way of adding a pop of colour into a living room or dining room area and provide a zoned area of rich and opulent colour. If you are on a budget then why not try your hand at re-upholstering your current chairs with some plain or patterned fabric in your chosen violet tone.
