Cushions

Aubergine tones look great alongside pink, silver and black upholstery or opt for a more muted purple tone in a patterned or floral print design to create a  traditional interior ambiance.

Another way of introducing purple as an accent colour is by adding a strategically placed upholstered chair, sofa or window seat.
