Featuring a bright stripe of violet tempered with lighter tones, this settee by Neiman Marcus is a simple way to add a stroke of contemporary to traditional cottage style.
Contrasted with neutral tones and weathered finishes, violet lends itself perfectly to both classic and contemporary patterns. Mixing and matching highlights this tone’s versatility. (Chairs by Cowtan & Tout)
While violet is perfect for adding punch to neutral backgrounds, it’s also right at home in bolder spaces like this one featured in One Kings Lane. Complex patterns, ornate accents, and other vibrant tones enhance the hue, rather than detracting from it.
Not willing to take the full plunge into violet? A softened hue like the one in this ornately patterned wallpaper can be the perfect way to introduce hints of this trend into your home. (This Old House)
