Kings and queens wore purple robes for good reason. Associated with wealth, prosperity and sophistication, purple can stimulate brain activity and problem solving. However, when it's overused in a common setting it can be perceived as pretentiousness and insincerity. Using purple carefully can create a sense of mystery, wisdom and respect. Any neutral color, especially beige, can work with purple to create an earthy look, while green or pink are other options that work well.
