The color purple goes well with yellow, blue, green, orange and other shades of purple. There are several different color schemes based on the color wheel that can be used to find the colors that go well with purple.

A complementary color scheme is made of two colors directly across from each other on the color wheel. Yellow is the opposite of purple. A contrasting scheme uses three colors evenly spaced around the wheel. For purple, the other two colors are orange and green. Analogous color schemes are made with colors next to each other on the wheel. The colors next to purple are blue and pink. A monochromatic color scheme is made of different shades of the same color, so different shades of purple would also go well together.
