This contemporary girls' nursery features a feminine and trendy color palette of gray, coral and aqua, along with a chevron-patterned accent wall above the crib. A midcentury-modern-inspired crib is sleek in a gender-neutral espresso/white finish.
The color of royalty flies in the face of the all-too-typical white-wall approach in a bedroom. Instead of patterned drapes and beige carpeting or an area rug, turn to the walls and bed to highlight your love of color. Combining dark and light purples keeps this space fresh and fun.
Matching headboards with a touch of whimsy and monogrammed pillow shams are classic touches in this traditional girls' bedroom. Cherubic sculptures hang protectively above each bed, and a striped Roman shade adds interest at the window.
In this nursery, the crib sheets mix and match patterns that pick up the rug's vibrant hues. To temper all the pink, a black-and-white photo and a group of fluttering butterflies are a chic, modern pairing.
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 chic lavender bedroom features a chrome canopy bed and mirrored nightstands that double as dressers. Plush throw pillows and bed linens add a level of Hollywood glam to this contemporary urban retreat.
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.
