What Happens to the Giant House Poster on Fixer Upper After the Reveal

Dark Purple Furniture Adds Variety to Neutral Color Scheme

Color Theory: Is Purple the New Black?

When I saw this rich purple shelving unit, I thought it was such an unexpected variation from furniture's more typical finishes, namely wood, brown, black, or white. It's much riskier to purchase an investment piece like a couch or a bookcase in a bold color, but this dark shade of purple adds visual interest without being outlandish.

Some hues can even creep so close to black, they cause you to do a double-take. Whether violet, aubergine, or plum, these pieces may cause you to think twice before you select a chocolate swatch.
