Use deep purple in your bedroom to create a lush and regal space to relax and unwind. Purple hues can be overwhelming for a room but with a few simple tricks you can indulge in an eggplant or merlot without feeling claustrophobic. Be sure to incorporate ample lighting in your space to keep a dark purple room feeling bright and clean.

Add Light Fabrics

Deep purple makes a bold and romantic colour choice for the bedroom, however, because of its richness it can quickly overwhelm a space. To balance the rich dark walls consider using silver and white accents to lighten the room and provide contrast. Silk bed coverings or window treatments in shimmering fabrics will help to reflect light around the room making the space appear larger. Keep the colour palette simple by choosing two or fewer shades of white, cream, or silver and applying them throughout the space. To add a fresh punch place large bouquets of white flowers atop night stands or bureaus.

Use Rich Furniture

Create a cosy and enveloping space by pairing deep purple walls with complementary rich wood furniture. The two will combine to create a luxurious and relaxing space. Mahogany and ebony shades evoke a regal aesthetic and will hold their own against the richness of the wall colour. Add dimension to the room by seeking out furniture with carved details. Choose fabrics and accents in coordinating purple shades but steer clear of elaborately patterns as they will compete with the furniture and walls. To add interest without overwhelming the space incorporate texture into the room with bed linens, throw pillows or area rugs.

Incorporate Two Shades

For those interested in incorporating purple into their master suite without committing to full purple walls install a chair rail in your space. Chair rails add detail and dimension as well as a simple way to add a touch of colour. Paint the wall below the chair rail in a rich deep purple. The wall space above the chair rail can be treated with a complementary neutral shade such as a light grey or white or extend the purple above the chair rail in a lighter shade. This two-tone approach allows you to enjoy the richness of the purple without it feeling to heavy or dark. Another way to add deep purple without committing to it throughout the master suite is to choose one wall as an accent wall. Generally the wall that the bed sits against makes an excellent choice for an accent wall.
