Mauve is an excellent addition to purple due to its versatility and ability to become one when they are paired together. Pairing these two hues will add a purple tint throughout the space that is classic and well-rounded.

We love the idea of creating a look with the color purple instead of simply adding it simultaneously into the space. Creating a look will allow the hues of purple to become the main staple of the space. Use hues of lavender, and/or lilac and pair them with shades of mauve. Mauve is a beautiful color that has a gray undertone when it is paired with purple it shifts in color a bit and offers a lilac undertone.
