Purple could look so spirited at times that you may think it has no place in the relaxing environment of your living room. If so, go for a purple that has been blended, or flecked, with another color to bring the intensity level down a touch.

For example, whether it’s a bookshelf, storage cube or wall unit, place baby friendly toys and items on the lower shelves. Your toddler or older child can stand and reach for the basket of Lego.
