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.
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.
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.
Spa-Like Bathroom With Freestanding Tub and Spacious Shower
While this spa-like bathroom has a contemporary, linear look, it’s softened by the textured accent wall in a floral pattern and the arced shower wall. The curved motif is repeated in the lines of the sinks and the freestanding tub.
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.
A light purple wall color surrounds sleek gray cabinetry and countertops, and a mosaic tile backsplash and patterned area rug bring texture to this soft space. The small black hutch provides a wet bar area and breaks up the solid purple wall color.
A surprising color combo of purple and brown make this dining room stand out from others. A purple pendant lamp picks up the purple in the chair cushions. Brown curtains and walls and a white shag rug complete the room.
Beautiful Contemporary Living Room With Violet Velvet Sofa, Lavender Details and Coffered Ceiling
Gray tones and a check-like design on the rug compliment the coffered ceiling with gray panels. A rich purple velvet sofa is decorated with pastel throw pillows. Tufted lavender chairs complete the seating arrangement around the low, cube coffee table. Metallic finishes accent the polished design.
