I would do mostly brown for things that are harder to change (like paint, furniture, etc.) then use purple as an accent color. We painted our condo fairly bright, and I really wish we had gone with something neutral because it limited our furnishing options a great deal.

You could go with a simple neutral color (like taupe) and use chocolate and purple accents. That way you don’t have to choose. We were registering the other day and I saw some amazing throw pillows that were purplemand chocolate. Looked good together.

I like neutrals for paint and floors, because I change my mind all the time. So this way I can go buy new accesories and change the look of the room without repainting every few months.  But I’m like you, when I do have to pick paint I waffle back and forth for days on what color I like best.

I’ve also seen ppl who live in apartments but wanted to change colors buy a super large canvas and paint it. It goes on one wall and adds visual interest/color to that one wall. And when you get ready to change it up u just take the canvas down, repaint it, and rehang it.

May be worth it to try before you commit.

Neutrals, especially if you live in an apartment.

I prefer more neutrals with splashes and accents of the color, but that is just my decorating preference. I wouldn’t buy a lot of harder to replace things in a bold color simply because it makes it harder to transition into a new color scheme later. Example: Our living room used to be mainly blue. Our couch and loveseat were a dark brown leather and our furniture is a dark wood. Now our living room is purple. Same furniture, different color scheme easily achieved with paint, accent pillows/throws and decor.

Note: Yes, we painted, but we just did an accent wall when it was blue and for purple we just did under the crown molding now that we’ve added that (and obviously no more blue.)
