6 Shades of Purple for the Bedroom

Purple isn't the go-to color for a standard bedroom, but it's a versatile color: you could play around with it, mixing and matching its various shades to achieve different effects. It could be chic or classic, feminine or neutral, luxurious or minimalistic, rich and heady or soothing to the senses -- you just need to use the right shade. Take a look at these bedrooms that nailed it with purple and its permutations:

Lavender


Unique, daring, and contemporary, this bedroom uses a bright, pastel shade of lavender liberally in the space. A light, bare wooden floor offers a tad of warmth and a black-and-white rug serves as an accent piece.

Eggplant


Paired with beige, off-white, and warm neutral colors, this almost brownish shade of purple -- eggplant purple, some would call it -- will lend an elegant and relaxing feel to a room. Opt to use it as an accent color using pillows, blankets, or curtains for a rich, heady, but soothing atmosphere.

Wisteria


A soft, pastel Wisteria paired with white and light, subtle grays make for a soothing retreat. Use soft, ambient lighting for the full effect.

Plum


Go baroque by using horizontal plum stripes on the walls and beige floral textures and patterns on the sheets and curtains. 

Mauve


There's a hint of Morrocan flair in this ensemble with light mauve walls, sheets, and patterned carpet. Use satin sheets for that luxurious and exotic feel, and throw in some browns and a violet accent piece to round things out.

Violet


Rich, reddish wooden furniture and trimmings, a beige wall, a soft gray carpet, and a striped violet bed: no repainting, no redecorating necessary -- just use a comforter, a blanket, and a couple of pillowcases to add that pop of purple to your room.
