Does anyone have ideas as to what colors can compliment "boysenberry"? On a website it states that boysenberry is like a deep purple with some red, kind of like a very pretty wine color. I need two complimenting colors to go with it. I am making a cardigan and want to be able to wear a few different colored shirts underneath to go with it. I fell in love with this color when I saw it but now wonder what colors will go beautifully with it. Some of my thoughts were, pink, white, tan which is kind of boring. I like wearing bright colors but don't want to look clownish. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!!

Navy is always good with purples. I am a purple/blackberry colour lover too.

Gray and dust rose come to mind but I think I would look at some painted heritages yams that had the sililar color in them and see how you like the colors together. Thee would be some interesting combinations one might not think of until you see them blended.

Sometimes when I am trying to create color combinations I think of how and where this color would be found in nature. Companion colors to boysenberry might be a leaf green, a muted yellow, a raspberry, a blackberry. Not in response to your query - I'll add that I find taupe to be a good neutral that goes with just about everything.

You can experiment with this color wheel - pick the color closest to the boysenberry and then look at the color palettes that go with it --- so many different hues to choose from.

Med. Kelly Green and Pale Yellow would let the Boysenberry POP! I like to put unusual colors together with a soft light one between.

Just about any green would look good.

The color wheel is spot on! I sell men's dress shirts in a large department store and am usually asked to help pick out ties to go with the shirts. Purple is a very popular color for shirts, and when I suggest we look at ties in the green family, they are aghast until I show them.
