How can you make purple and red sponged walls work in a dining room with Arabesque decor.?

All other rooms in my home are cream with beige tile. Most have either red or purple accents. The dining room is situated in the middle of the house. I figured combining the two (red, purple) could be dramatic, maybe even a Moroccan flair. I know this could go beautifully well or tragically wrong. Any suggestions? I have yet to pick furniture so it's an open canvas. Much of my artwork is black with gold accents. The floor is a neutral beige ceramic tile.

  1. Painting your walls with a flat off white does two things off the bat: it is neutral so you can put any color furniture and other decors in there with the option of changing color schemes in the future without having to repaint, and lighter walls reflect light better thus high wattage light bulbs won't be necessary which prevents you from using more energy and paying higher utility bills. Painting walls in a room in certain color combinations limits you to few themes and commits you for a long time to small decor choices. So forget colored and go for white.
