It's a bit out there but I like it.

They don't really 'go' IMO - what other colours have you got going on in room?

Main walls are your basic creamy colour.

They are the wrong shades

Tone down the purple and look at more minty greens -

Yes, they go. They appear in nature together all the time.

If I put them together at all I think I'd do white/cream walls, wood floor with a cream and real rug, teal curtains and purple cushions/ornaments.

Woah, that's bold. To my eyes, no they clash horribly

I'm really not keen on bright feature walls. For that reason I vote no

Too strong

If you designed the whole room just in these colours then it would be too overwheming and I'd need 😎.

If, however, the walls and carpet are neutral (white or cream) and these colours are highlights, then yes, I think it would work and look lovely.

Not on my screen -may look better in real life. I think a redder purple might look good. Or, as others have said, a minty-er green (although I don't myself like that combination)

My daughters room is turquoise and hot pink - that looks lovely together although I guess maybe not right for a living room.....

I'm awful with stuff like this so I have no useful input other than to say you're a poet and you don't know it.

They do 'go'. Search purple and teal on pinterest there are loads of examples. Not personally my style, but if you like it go for it.

I've got splashes of turquoise and hot pink as colour accents in my grey living room (well it'll be fully grey when I get round to painting it) and it looks fab - but I don't think it would work as well with more of a purple to be honest.

Thank you for feed back.
will have a think!

RitchyBestingFace Sun 25-Sep-16 09:37:58

I really like the colours but it depends what you do with them.

this is lovely for example

Tubbyinthehottub Sun 25-Sep-16 09:41:53

I think they look nice together

No, wrong shades of purple and green. Those ones there look very cold and hard. If you do fancy those colours though a more olive green and royal purple would work better
