Decorate Your House With Purple Walls
Purple walls bring to a room elegance, rich and stylish, whether the room is a living room, bedroom or even bathroom. Here are several ideas of decorating with purple walls. Create a dark, romantic atmosphere in a master bedroom suite with a deep eggplant or twilight purple color on the walls. Use reproduction Victorian or Louis XV, French period furniture for a dramatic, gothic look. Include black accents such as a chandelier, sheer bed canopy, accent pillows, table lamps, nightstands or mirror frames. Add extra-long, plum velvet drapes with lilac sheers to filter soft, violet-hued light into the room. For contrast, include light colors in upholstery and fabric patterns with hues of silver, apricot or light rose. A purple accent wall in a living room is perfect for adding an exotic touch of color without overwhelming the room. Purple walls blends beautifully with many other colors, which leaves you with plenty of options. Decide first whether you want to keep it light with cool colors, or heat up the room with warm tones. A plum accent wall or any violet hue with red undertones would pair beautifully with wheat, apricot, peach, brown, terra cotta, rust, gold, ochre or sage-colored walls.
For an upscale or formal look, you can find luxurious purple wallpaper patterns. A classic damask pattern in contrasting light and dark violet or a black or silver stencil over purple walls can provide a sophisticated look in a dining room or bedroom. Textured wallpaper can be used to add a tactile dimension. A soft, floral pattern in light lilac or lavender may complement a vintage-style room, while bright, bold, geometric designs would work in a contemporary room.
