Antique Inspiration

HGTV fan BelleInteriors was inspired by the time period of her early 20th-century home when she remodeled the bathroom. Yellow-green walls and a bold pink floral arrangement provide great contrast between the black marble floor and the room's cool color scheme.

Pretty in Pink

HGTV fan dotsazules created this glamorous pink and black bathroom with a budget and creative ideas. The graphic floral shower curtain was uniquely created from dress fabric. Pink floral arrangements and a fresh white coat of paint on the cabinets amplify this girly space.

Dash of Yellow

Black walls can make a room look small and dark, but not this bathroom that pulls it off beautifully using a good balance of white, light and a splash of color. HGTV fan KT_Designs incorporated subtle touches of yellow for an element of color against the walls and furnishings. A black-and-white toile shower curtain helps pull the entire look together.

Vintage Vibrance

To make this splash of green really stand out, HGTV fan dezignrogue added white floor-to-ceiling subway tiles to cover up old attic stairs and add a vintage feel. The perfect touch to this all-white bathroom is bold color accessories like the green potpourri and candles.

Modern Blues

With black mirrors and vanities, HGTV fan tiki262 brightened up a dark bathroom with turquoise on the walls, a white-tiled tub surround and flowing white curtains for softness.

Sea Daze

Nothing is more relaxing and serene than the sea. HGTV fan VintageKitchen used sea-inspired colors of green as inspiration for this spa-like master bathroom. The walls are covered with aqua glass tiles that end at an angled beadboard ceiling. A vintage crystal chandelier and white china cabinet lend a shabby cottage feel.

Dramatic Addition

This small bathroom was transformed into a chic powder room by HGTV fan KarenSpirit. She hand-painted oversized pink flowers on the walls to serve as the space's focal point. She added simple decor to complement but not take away from the dramatic walls.

Sleek in Blue

HGTV fan Sombreuil wanted to create an Edwardian-retro look in this 100-year-old bathroom. He used white subway tile on the wainscot and tub surround to separate and soften the cobalt-blue paint. Deco-inspired fixtures and a mosaic-tiled floor complete this transformation.

Color Complements

If you can't change your bathroom tile, try decorating around it in a coordinating color. HGTV fan mstupski infused this gray-tiled room with yellow and brought it back to life on a budget. Sunny accessories, paint and a floral bathmat dramatically brighten the gray tile.

Orange Warmth

Spice up a master bathroom with a touch of orange. HGTV fan 8926419 began with a neutral wall color and added bold orange and blue accessories to create a finished look in a comforting palette.

Rustic Transformation

This formerly pink bathroom was given an updated rustic makeover by HGTV fan katieg2578. Fresh green walls and rich brown tones provide a soft and natural feel.

Bold Stripes

If you're having trouble choosing one wall color, why not go with two? HGTV fan stereosandsouffles paired turquoise paint accented with a metallic stripe on the walls. Blue and silver accessories help brighten this guest bathroom and shine against the black countertop.

Vibrant Trio

Green is a bold, fresh color to complement a black-and-white color scheme. HGTV fan palmax chose a bright green to add a pop of color to a basic dichromatic room. White tile on the wainscot adds a touch of sleekness.

Golden Sophistication

This Bali-inspired bathroom by HGTV fan BoBendana boasts color confidence in an understated, elegant way. The carved teak vanity, seashell mirror frames and exotic accents pop off the sea-green walls.

Retro Wallpaper

It's all about the silver and green floral wallpaper in this 1960s redo. HGTV fan aralston127 embraced the retro look, adding a simple framed mirror, a vintage-inspired black vanity and simple silver accessories.

Gray Modernity

For less than $500, HGTV fan smwagne turned a drab 1970s bathroom into a modern space. White cabinetry and tile tub surround add lightness to the deep gray walls and black-and-white shower curtain. Deep red towels add a splash of color and chic style.

Shabby Chic Pink

A gorgeous white buffet is the focus of this shabby chic master bathroom by HGTV fan MyLittleYellowHouse. The pink walls and frills are a soft contrast against the white buffet and mirror and make this space perfect for any girly girl.

Spa-Inspired Oasis

HGTV fan gogirlgo transformed a small, plain bathroom into a luxurious spa-like getaway. Pale blue-green paint and a pebble rock wall above the vanity set the stage for serenity. With a TV mirror, there's no reason to leave this oasis.

Rock Star Glamour

HGTV fan lisaann19672002 transformed her guest bathroom with edgy rock-star decor. The now-glam bathroom features silver silk drapes, floor-to-ceiling black tile, a glittery vessel sink and a solid hot pink wall for a dramatic splash of color in this mostly black space.

Tropical Retreat

This gender-neutral bathroom features colors perfect for the two boys and one girl who share it. HGTV fan rdoukas brought the beach to the bathroom with bright summer colors and Hawaii-inspired decor.

Purple bathroom decor can come in many forms, from a few simple accessories to an entire theme seen throughout the space. One of the first elements to consider incorporating into your purple bathroom decor theme is the linen collection in the bathroom. Towels, bath mats, shower curtains and window shades are all great candidates for carrying a color and hue theme throughout the space. They're also widely available in a range of purple, lavender and lilac colors, from light shades almost bordering on pink to striking, powerful and dramatic deep purples. Even in a design that doesn't feature purple as a primary color or even an accent on walls, floors or fixtures, these linens and other accessories can be a great opportunity to add a pop of purple to any bathroom space.

For an even more consistent theme, consider featuring purple as a primary or accent color on furniture. Cushions on benches or chairs, hardware on cabinets or even the cabinets themselves can feature shades of purple effectively. Don't be afraid to use patterns, either—bold stripes, polka dot designs, plaid and gingham can all feature well on cushions and other areas.
When it comes to wallpaper, you'll have plenty of choices among designs featuring purple. Playful yet traditional toile, modern geometric patterns and more style-neutral stripes and solids are all available and can be an effective way to incorporate purple into your bathroom design.

Artwork can also be a great way to add purple to a bathroom decor scheme. Impressionistic or modern designs featuring purple as a primary color are plentiful, and they're only an Internet search or trip to your local art gallery away. Wall art or small statuary pieces can be a great way to incorporate any color in a subtle yet strong way.

Countertops and flooring can also feature purple in your bathroom design. Some forms of stone and marble can be dyed to your specifications to carry the purple theme, or you can opt for artificial surfaces in hues of purple. Floors can be created from purple tile in a wide range of materials, and wood floors can be painted purple as well.
