To create a calm, classic sleeping space, this modestly sized bedroom is painted a muted shade of lavender which borders on mauve. To play up the purple undertones of the wall color, the space is layered with different shades of plum.
Eclectic though it may be, this master suite is fit for royalty! Here, a gold headboard and pillows featuring the Union Jack add a regal touch to the bed, which is complemented by a crystal chandelier and red velvet chairs.
More floral wall coverings in a lilac that plays very well with spring-evocative greens and contemporary art keeps this bedroom from Catherine M. Austin Interior Design from registering as too saccharine and girly. The color scheme was inspired by Austin’s time spent in Italy in the spring and the purple wisteria she saw there. Think about using your travel photos for both design and color inspiration.
Exposed brick works overtime in the master bedroom, both adding raw texture to the space and giving the room a sense of history. A small brick fireplace complements the walls and keeps the suite cozy, too.
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.
With a new baby girl in the family, Chip and his team were charged with the important job of making sure that the Howells' princess has the perfect palace. Chip and his team added complimentary colors, such as pink and purple, as well as multiple patterns and textures to make this place sugar and spice and everything nice for this baby girl. The luxurious crib and additional toy storage is a must have to help make the nursery clean and inviting.
A leopard-print area rug grounds this eclectic girl's bedroom, while starry wallpaper adds style overhead. Traditional bunk beds dressed in pretty whites take up less floor space and still provide the lady of the room space for sleepovers.
Bird and cloud Hygge & West wallpaper was the jumping off point for this room's design. A mix of lilac and purple are used throughout the space offset by lots of white space. The cozy window seat features a soft gray cushion and is the perfect spot to read a book.
The canopy above the bed embraces the odd angles of ceiling in this dreamy girl's bedroom. Fanciful wallpaper creates a space where imagination and playfulness is encouraged. A mix of different lilacs and purples creates interest as well as a cohesive design.
Curtains are hung from cornices and trimmed with fabric that mimics the damask design of the wall and headboard fabric, offering an unusual interpretation on the more conventional canopy bed in the 2006 Kips Bay Decorator Show House.
Plum painted custom millwork with blue tie-ins and traditional furniture provide a unique and inviting farmhouse style room to make guests feel comfortable and at home. “Purple is a really hard color to work with, but plum is purple with just enough brown in it to make it a little more on the new neutral side,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
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.
