Your bedroom is a haven--a private retreat where you can relax, unwind and enjoy solitude. When decorating this space, consider using colours that complement one another, such as green and purple. Different shades of these colours lend themselves to different looks. For instance, lime green and bright purple bring energy to a room. Softer hues--such as lavender and sage--are ideal for a soothing sanctuary.
Paint Your Canvas
Set the stage for your bedroom makeover by painting the walls in your favourite hues of purple and green. Make a dramatic look by painting a feature wall a deep royal purple and the remaining walls a bright lime green. For a more understated look, paint the walls a pastel purple and the trim pastel green--or vice versa. Create an artistic-looking space with jade green walls that feature amethyst scrolls, fleurs de lis or floral stencils.
The main attraction in every bedroom is the bed. Draw attention to it by dressing it in shades of green and purple. Satin royal purple sheets topped with a velvet emerald-green comforter look sleek and dramatic. For a feminine room, lay a lilac French toile bedspread on top of celadon sheets. Achieve a relaxing, spa-like feel with an overstuffed cotton duvet in moss green accented by lilac microfiber throw pillows and a plush throw blanket.
Draw attention to your windows with purple and green fabrics. Hang pale purple and green sheers on your windows for a light and airy look. Crushed velvet floor-to-ceiling drapes in deep purple are more dramataic. For an air of sophistication, cover your windows with dark green Roman shades.
Bring It Together
Bring the elements of the room together with green and purple accessories. Add warmth to the floor with a colour-blocked green-and-purple throw rug. Hang wall art that features green and purple elements--such as a landscape of lavender flowers hung in a green frame. Glass green vases filled with purple roses or lavender flowers add not only a pop of colour to your room, but a sweet smell as well. Lamps topped with purple and green shades cast a glow of the hue when illuminated.
