Purple, when worn, creates a regal feel and adds confidence. Purple as used in interior design, however, can be tricky, but when used appropriately, can add a rich dimension to any room. A spot of aubergine in your home, like an accent piece or a door, is a great way to mix in this color without going overboard. You can also start with an aubergine sofa or rug. A mauve toned sofa against a white wall will look very comfortable and acts as a solid neutral in the room.
