Amethyst Color Palette
Taken straight from nature, this color palette of bold amethyst paired with lilac, deep gray and black is sexy and sophisticated with a touch of bohemian flair.
A black wall provides a sophisticated backdrop to the eclectic bed in this boho-style bedroom. Bold purple accents brighten the sleek, neutral shades.
This formal sitting room features shoes as art and mirrored panels that draw the eye to an amethyst-colored ceiling.
Pops of Purple
Shades of brown and lavender are brightened with pops of deep purple in this contemporary living room.
Designer Claire Paquin installed patterned draperies in rust, amethyst and light blue and carried these colors throughout the room. Paired with the creamy neutrals, this color scheme gives the room a sense of warmth and sophistication.
An upholstered bed in a fun shade of lilac creates a colorful focal point in this girl's bedroom. Bold pillows atop crisp, white bedding tie in with a chevron-patterned rug.
Rich Guest Room
Against dark hues and a playful, patterned headboard, rich purple pops and becomes the room's focal color.
Take It Outside
A bright, purple patio set adds some extra oomph to this French-inspired outdoor space.
Chic Lounge Space
Against a purple wall, a white shelving unit provides sharp contrast, coordinating with a small, white table flanked by two velvet chairs in regal amethyst.
Pulling from the purple and chartreuse artwork on the wall, designer Claire Paquin added similarly hued pillows as colorful accents in this modern, white bedroom.
Purple hydrangeas are the perfect pop of purple as a warm-weather centerpiece.
Custom, royal purple beds with tufted headboards steal the show in this transitional guest bedroom. Grasscloth wallpaper creates a soothing backdrop for the space while adding texture to the walls.
This living room couch is adorned with a variety of rich, jewel-toned pillows.
Taking inspiration from Pantone's Colors of the Year, rose, gray-blue and purple tones create a calming atmosphere in this contemporary dining room.
A turquoise desk with a purple tufted side chair and patterned accent wall work together to provide a sense of playfulness to this home office. Especially noteworthy is the purple "bubble" chandelier that immediately catches the eye.
