do you like deep colours? if you do stick with them if not add a neutral like ivory or grey to break it up a bit, ivory/white would be traditional, grey would be more modern ive added a pic hope it helps a little

Yes, I think you need an inspiration board to help you convey the overall feel you’re going for. Here are a few with different colors mixed in, but if none of these work, you can make your own or look for one that’s closer to your vision:

Oh, boy, what a loaded question! LOL I happen to believe PASSIONATELY in mixing shades of the same color instead of trying to match everything to the exact shade. To me, it adds depth and interest and looks more sophisticated. Greens, in particular, can be mixed rather well because they occur that way in nature (think about the different greens you see in a garden), so we’re used to seeing various shades together. Don’t let anyone tell you that all your colors need to match exactly – it’s a myth!!

Here are a couple of mostly green boards to give you an idea – just imagine adding your eggplant into the mix and you can see it can work!

Here’s another that might help (ignore the Indian theme – just look at the eggplant + lime):
