Just be careful, colours based upon nouns (generally fruits, jewels, flowers) do not change. 'Violet' is confusing because it is a flower in English but « une violette » is the flower in French.

Une robe orange, des robes orange (no 's').

Un chat marron, une chatte marron, des chattes marron.

Also compound colours do not change for number of gender.

Un sac à main rose clair, une jupe rose clair, des tableaux rose clair.
