Infusing purple accents into your home …

Pure deep purple begins with the combination of the primary colors red and blue. Tones or shades of purple are a careful blend of the primary colors; red and blue, then combined with yellow, black and or white they become complex and full of mystery.
So where and how do we use these mystical purple tones???
