The color purple has recently become the IT hue to use, not only is it the color of the year, but it’s royal, it’s chic, it’s feminine, it’s eclectic and has become a trending color to use in your home. Unlike popular belief, purple is an extremely versatile color, yet it as a bad reputation due to many not knowing how to incorporate it into the home. Here are fabulous ways to incorporate different shades of purple in your home.
Create a Look
We love the idea of creating a look with the color purple instead of simply adding it simultaneously into the space. Creating a look will allow the hues of purple to become the main staple of the space. Use hues of lavender, and/or lilac and pair them with shades of mauve. Mauve is a beautiful color that has a gray undertone when it is paired with purple it shifts in color a bit and offers a lilac undertone.
Daring Purple Walls
If you want to take a daring approach towards using hues of purple in your home, use an accent purple wall. Having a bold, bright, daring purple wall as your decorative focal point could be exactly what your space needs to come back to life. Many times, your space may be in need of a color upgrade, the accent wall would help with that.
A purple sofa? Yes, please. Pair your purple sofa with other colorful bits to create a grounding effect throughout. Additionally, there is the beauty of creating a summery vibe that can be interchanged for the cooler months by simply changing your color scheme a bit. We love the idea of adding a hot pink chair to pair with your regal purple sofa.
Do not miss out on having the ability to incorporate periwinkle into your décor, it’s the perfect in-between shade, it’s not quite purple but it’s not blue either. Its undertones are a bit more blue and lavender depending on which shades the color is paired with. For a blue undertone use hues of pastel blues and for a purple undertone pair with shades of dark purple.
Pair with Silver
Use your favorite hue of purple and place it in the dining room. The dining room is a perfect area to use shades of purple, especially when it is paired with silver. Silver is perfect for creating a contrast between the different shades of purple you may use, it will bring forth a softness to the shade that is seamless.
Instead of going full matte go glossy, especially in the kitchen. Glossy kitchen cabinets have become a huge trend which is why they work so well when they are paired in the kitchen. Pair with marble to bring a classic touch to this trendy new take on kitchen counters.
Have a neutral room that needs a bit of color but do not want to add a daring punch? If so, adding lavender armchairs is one of the best ways to go. They are neutral yet have a simple punch of color that simply makes sense. The aesthetics of the room will still remain the same but with an added touch of stylish, charm.
Mix & Match
Take a few hues of purple and mix and match them throughout the room. The different shades add a unique twist while still complimenting each other. They create a seamless look that flows throughout the space. Pair darker hues of purple with soft lilacs and lavenders for the perfect touch.
Go for a purple wallpaper that offers some sort of texture or color combination. Doing so brings a brightening effect that will still bring color and charm to the area. This will work well in any room due to wallpaper being easy to incorporate, while still working well with your already existing décor.
Purple Kitchen Island
For a surprise colorful touch consider adding a purple kitchen island to your kitchen. Pair with red and gold bits for a seamless touch that creates a modern aesthetic. The idea is to have the island become the main focus of the kitchen while still being chic and classic.
