What Colors Match With Plum Interior Decor?


Plum has a rich, romantic and sophisticated look, making it a favored color for walls, furnishings, pottery and floral arrangements. Deep plum shades stand out even more when paired with other complementary light colors. Balance the room by featuring decor that showcases both light and dark shades to go with plum leather sofas, accent walls and rugs.

Other Shades of Purple

  • Other shades of purple blend nicely with plum couches and decor accents. Adorn a plum leather or suede couch with dark purple and lavender solid-colored, floral or pattered pillows. The lighter shades of purple stand out against the dark plum couch and other darker shades of purple. Place lavender flowers in plum-colored vases and set these on your mantle, end table or coffee table. Hang up framed pictures that have a plum, lavender or medium purple border. Arrange light purple, deep purple and plum-colored bottles with corks along the mantel or window sill for added decoration.

Reds and Burgundy

  • Shades of red along with burgundy complement deep plum decor. These colors don't create contrast, but they don't clash with plum either. Decorate your living area with a cherry red coffee table or other burgundy accents. Suede solid-colored, burgundy pillows can create a comfy look in your living area. Place a rug with shades of plum and burgundy on the floor to create more balance in the room.

Neutral Shades

  • Browns, ivory and beige also match plum furniture and decor pieces because neutral shades have a plain effect that makes it easy to pair them with almost any color. Place a combination of ivory and brown pillows on a plum leather couch. You may want to also paint the walls beige or tan and then decorate with various plum-colored treasures, such as lamps, rugs, flowers and figurines.


  • A wide variety of green shades complement a plum wall, couch or other decor piece. Feature colors such as sage, forest green, pastel green and medium green. You might also pair your favorite shades of green with combinations of lavender and deep purple along with plum since green goes so well alongside purple colors. Place green pottery, pillows, flowers, rugs and antiques in the same room with your plum furnishings.
