I enjoy making mood boards of some of my favorite shades. It helps me explore trends, and even gets my mind thinking about new colorways for AphroChic products. Recently I was playing around on the mood board in my office, and was struck by a new color palette that surfaced – purple and black. Purple has never been big on my list of favorite shades. Sometimes it can be over-the-top, but in these cool and sophisticated rooms the shade is just right. For instance, the bedroom above sports purple-gray walls that are so soothing.
Just a touch of purple can make quite an impression. Here, pastel purple chairs stand out beautifully in this white dining room. I love that the chairs surround a black table. The color combo is classic.
Electric shades of purple work well when paired with dark shades like walnut. The color is energizing, but also tamed by a deep, dark neutral.
I love the hint of purple in the antique carpet in this living room. The hue adds a bit of a feminine touch to this otherwise masculine seating area.
And this image has me really wanting a bright purple dining room table. I mean, how cool is this?! The grape color stands out beautifully against simple wood and metal chairs.
