Purple Walls Create Depth in Contemporary Home Office
Rich purple walls create a sense of depth in this contemporary home office. A patterned rug with a tie-dye look complements the walls, and other furnishings are kept neutral so as not to make the space feel overdone.
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.
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.
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.
Spa-Like Bathroom With Freestanding Tub and Spacious Shower
While this spa-like bathroom has a contemporary, linear look, it’s softened by the textured accent wall in a floral pattern and the arced shower wall. The curved motif is repeated in the lines of the sinks and the freestanding tub.
This toddler bed has been customized with a sprayed violet paint finish. To give basic bedding a designer update, decorative trim was added to the pillows and a duvet cover, originally picked up from a big-box retail store. Hardy Crystorama pendant lights shaped as bouquets of roses were installed in the ceiling above plastic nightstands.
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.
This contemporary bedroom was designed around a passion for the color purple and old Hollywood nostalgia. A wrapped accent wall was plastered with a deep eggplant color and smooth velvet-like finish. The flooring (cut pile carpet) is also a deep eggplant with touches of silver-grey. The bright white furniture and a luxurious upholstered headboard add high color contrast and bold graphic accents. Glamorous accessories, such as mirrored tabletops, a black velvet Lucite bench, black lampshades and a zebra area rug punctuate and anchor the bold color combinations.
Purple reigns in this contemporary dining room. Purple walls and a purple and magenta rug contrast with the neutral chairs and black dining table. A pendant light with a drum shade and an ivory sideboard complete the look.
