Purple adds an air of grandeur and sophistication to a room. One of the best partners for purple is green, as is often seen in nature.

In the latest issue of SPACES magazine we feature one kitchen painted with four different Rio-inspired colours. The image below is the purple kitchen; to see the green, red and yellow kitchens, be sure to get a copy of SPACES.

The complementary colour to purple is yellow. The two colours used together not only balance each other but also enhance each other; you only need to look at nature to see evidence of this.
