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.
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.
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.
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.
The bed isn’t the only place for relaxing in this bedroom. A chaise lounge in the bedroom promises many hours of comfort, staring lazily out the window at the unique ironwork that Malene designed herself. The lounge is topped with a cushion from a favorite local store in the area, Peace and Riot.
Gray-and-white floral curtains are hung high in this bedroom to create height. A round silver nightstand and wicker rocker bring curvy, feminine touches to the eclectic bedroom, seen on Secrets From a Stylist.
