Be Bold with This Year's Color: Purple

If you are looking for home décor that makes a fashion statement, you can't go wrong with purple. You have a wide range of purple-hued colors to choose from, including dusty lilac to deep eggplant, and purple is a shade often associated with royalty. For an elegant, chic, and funky décor, consider ways to implement purple throughout your home's spaces:

Paint Something

Make the transition to purple dramatically by painting a wall or ceiling. Choose a lighter lavender for small spaces that you want to seem larger, or a dark violet for rooms that you want to warm-up. Know that the paint can look significantly darker or lighter once it dries, so ask retail personnel for assistance when choosing colors.

Look for Luscious Textiles

Use purple fabrics and window treatments for the right-amount of the color to accentuate your room. Consider violet sheers on windows to allow a lot of natural light into the space, or deep-eggplant valances in rooms with white walls or fixtures. Use purple fabrics to reupholster a favorite piece of furniture, or to upcycle a find from a thrift store.

Use Purple Accents

Choose just a few purple accents, such as rugs, throws, and pillows to complement a neutral or white room. Mix and match different shades of purple for a gradient effect.

Create a Purple Point-of-Interest

Integrate purple into a piece of art that will serve as an interesting focal point in your room. Refurbish something that you have with a little attention and some paint, such as a framed mirror on the wall.

Talk to retailers and designers about using purple in your home for a fresh, contemporary twist. You don't have to spend a lot of money to make an impact; consider these tips for that perfect punch of purple to brighten, lighten, and enhance your favorite spaces.
