Light-Filled Seating Area in Stylish Purple Home Office
Two matching chairs are situated by a large window in this mulberry purple home office, creating a bright seating area within the space. A patterned area rug with saturated hues of purple adds interest and movement underfoot.
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.
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.
Seen on HGTV's Design Star season 7, Kris Swift and Bex Hale create a bold bedroom with multiple seating areas—but perhaps it's too bold? "I'm trying to make sense of it with my eyeballs," judge Genevieve Gorder quips as she enters the room. "They chose a really tough color."
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.
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.
Chic, Feminine Porter's Chair Against Lavender Backdrop
This chic porter's chair has a domed egg-like shaped back with pink patterned fabric and acts as a focal point in the room against lavender walls and a black floor. The small black bookcase, purple and lavender pull-up curtain and lavender rug create a cohesive background for the unique chair.
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.
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 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.
