Magenta purple is a purplish-red hue that looks similar to the color plum. Unlike standard magenta, which contains equal parts red and blue, magenta purple contains more blue and leans more toward purple on the color wheel. Magenta purple looks like the color of wine, a popular color for bridesmaid dresses. Purple and red of any shade can be overpowering when used in home décor. Magenta purple is no different. If you choose to use magenta purple in your home, you need to do one of two things: go big or use it sparingly. There is no in-between. If you choose to go big, consider painting an entire wall magenta purple. Do this in your living room, a study, the master bedroom, or dining room. Keep the dramatic theme alive and use black and gold accent pieces. Silver would also work just as well. If drama is not your goal, keep your color scheme neutral and surprise the eye with pops of magenta purple throughout. For instance, paint your walls light gray, decorate with deep gray furniture, and buy fixtures in matte black and cream. Incorporate magenta purple in the form of artwork, bouquets, and throw pillows. Magenta purple will almost always be a feminine color. Bear this in mind when choosing to decorate your space with the vibrant hue.
