Interiors: Ochre + Purple

Golden ochre and pretty purple, an interesting combination, isn't it? The tendency is to mix ochre with plum to create a rich, warm palette, but I also like the combination of ochre and lilac in the second example. It's fresh, unexpected, playful and fun. 
What do you think about this color combo? Something you'd be willing to try?

Ooo, rich rooms! I'd try it! I love the patina on the wall in the first photo.

Wow, such a b-e-a-u-tiful combination! I love it!! I'd definitely be willing to try this. My favourite is the first picture, I love the texture of the walls :) x

Ooh, I really like this! And for as much as I LOVE purple, somehow it hasn't worked its way into a single room in our house. Maybe when I finally get around to that laundry room remodel, then I'll have the most elegant laundry room around! ;-)

That couch is fantastic! And this post made me realize that I don't have any purple in my house. That needs to change!

I LOVE those colors, both in interiors and fashion... I'm hoping to incorporate them into my fall wardrobe! I'm thinking purple tops with ochre accessories.
