This shade of periwinkle has just enough gray to keep it from looking juvenile. For a modern twist on Americana, try pairing it with deep reds, like the accents in this kitchen, and whites. A dark blue tile backsplash spills over onto the countertop to add a deeper shade to the color scheme.
Living in a home with an emphasis on bold hues, the homeowners hoped to stay away from neutrals and embrace the energy of powerful color combinations. This master bathroom communicates fresh energy with imaginative color and natural light. A periwinkle blue vanity is illuminated by sparkling pendants made of textured hand-blown glass.
Lands of contrast, flickering lights, paisleys and palm trees along the Nile are just a few of the motifs that inspired Charlotte’s design. Straying away from the traditional blue and white color palette, she instead draped the bedroom in shades of periwinkle and cream. Tropical and worldly touches placed throughout create this beautiful “bedroom of visual memories (a place to dream).”
With so many shades to chose from, it’s important to get violet tones right before layering them. Red violets tend to cast pink or burgundy hues onto their surroundings while blue-violets tend to make nearby objects appear periwinkle. But when the two are used together (as seen here), they usually cancel each other out, striking up a perfect balance.
