i recently painted my living room harvested natural bark, and it has a strong dark purple tint. its worse in certain light, any tips on how to make the purple not noticable? paint trim bright white? what color carpet would make it appear more brown than purple? lighting? etc.
If the purple shows most under artificial light the color temp of the light may be off and more importantly the color rendering index of the bulbs may be low. You want a color rendering index of 95 or better. Incandescent bulbs have good CRIs as do halogens even though both have lower color temperatures. Cheaper florescent bulbs have terrible CRIs and can make things viewed under them look very unnatural.
