I am struggling with my vision for our new living room. A few months ago, I jumped on purchasing a rug because it was on sale and I loved the pattern. However, the only color left was purple, which isn’t the most easy color in the world to coordinate with. However, I’m trying! What color couches should I try to match with this palette, and what other things should I incorporate to keep it from looking TOO “feminine”?
What the living room looks like:
Items I have bought, made, put on the registry, or intend to buy soon, along with the color palette:
Any input or advice is appreciated!

Cream or gray would be nice and neutral.

I have beige walls, eggplant drapes and a chocolate brown leather couch. I love all the color scheme you picked 🙂 I’m copying.

I agree, these would be beautiful!

I love the idea of a neutral couch with amazing throw pillows in your color pallete. It is a lot more fun and you can change the pillows a lot easier should you want to mix things up later on.

Thanks, y’all! I like the neutral couch idea a lot. Even a peanut-buttery color might work! It’s not too girly, is it? That’s what I’m concerned about!

I have interior design experience and I would say it depends how dark a purple it is. If is dark use lots of gray for balance. A lighter version toward an eggplant color would look good with a light gold. What you have shown is a great start. Just remember every room should have a touch of black somewhere even if it is just a lampshade. It grounds the room. Hope that helps!

I would definitely go for a gray couch with purple and cream throw pillows.

Do you think the gray would clash with the tans and browns? Seriously y’all, I have no vision when it comes to this stuff! Also, I have a dog, so I don’t want it to look too grungy after a while!

found this sofa…does the gray clash?

What about a dark brown leather sofa? Or dark gray?
Alternatively you could go bold–with a bright red or orange couch/accent chair or slip cover.
I think you need some higher contrast
