Deep Purple Colour Dreams for Rooms
Purple is a fascinating color because it is the coming together of the spectrum's two extremes: red, a fiery and stimulating hue, and blue, which is serene and calming. For that reason, I think purple is a color choice that offers perfect balance, but it can be a challenge to find just the right tone that works. Some people think that lighter lavenders are juvenile, and some of the midtones can be too vibrant. A great solution may be to go dark and look to the plums and deep purples.
Purple makes an eye-catching accent color, and it's perfect for areas that you want to get noticed.
Deep reddish-plum is often referred to as scarlet. This color is elegant and classic. It looks best in a traditional setting, such as this ornate bathroom.
Tufted, purple upholstery says luxury. Here, coordinating window treatments help create a very sophisticated space.
This bathroom has a lighthearted feel that is accentuated with pretty purple and pink towels. Brown, purple and pink create an unexpected color combo, which helps reinforce the casual look of this space.
Silk or satin bedding in any color is extravagant, but in regal shades of plum it looks even more sumptuous.
Painting your ceiling purple is a bold move, but in this room it visually lowers the ceiling to make the space feel more cozy, while all the varying shades of cool and warm purple tie the whole space together.
A rich shade of violet paired with gray is stylish for a contemporary space.
In this Asian-inspired bedroom, purple, gold and rich wood tones all come together to create an opulent setting.
