Seen on HGTV's Design Star season 7, Kris Swift and Bex Hale create a bold bedroom with multiple seating areas—but perhaps it's too bold? "I'm trying to make sense of it with my eyeballs," judge Genevieve Gorder quips as she enters the room. "They chose a really tough color."
The lavender walls set the stage for a fun and colorful space in this girl's bedroom. A lavender and purple rug complements the wall color and adds texture to the room. A contemporary round table and two chairs provide space for working, playing and being creative. A tall mounted bookshelf allows for easy, clutter-free stacking with a floating shelf appearance.
In a smaller bedroom, a dramatic color can have the cool effect of making the space feel cozier. Eggplant purple coats the walls and ceiling in this apartment bedroom with surprisingly intimate results.
To make what was a juvenile, childish girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, the walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents.
Blush-colored roses bloom on the opposite side of the space, creating a display that distracts from the sleek black TV. A textured buffet table below offers storage for DVDs and complements the room's jewel-toned furnishings.
Contemporary Bedroom With Matching Single Beds Dressed With Patterned Orange Bolsters and Magenta Accents
Plum tones are great for using violet in a more muted manner. For an unexpected twist, try pairing this tone with touches of tangerine, as seen on the bolster pillows in this vibrant space. Magenta pillows and throws match the dividing table lamp and compliment the wall hue while adding a deeper shade to the room.
Against an eggplant purple wall, a white shelving unit provides sharp contrast, coordinating with a small white table flanked by two velvet chairs. This elegant space provides stylish storage for books and accessories.
This seating area sits adjacent to a wet bar in the Pent Room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015, making it the perfect spot for adults to enjoy cocktails and conversation. The oversized pendant light is made from a synthetic resin to keep it lightweight.
