Fairy-Tale Reading Nook
Soft purple and lime green evoke a sense of growth and passion, making it a powerful combination in a girl's room. The curved windows create a cozy nook for reading fairy tales, and violet flower details on the chandelier lend a touch of magic. Designed by Jennifer Duneier
When shades of purple are more red than blue, the room's mood leans toward drama. An angular ceiling covered in fabric and the complex color palate add architectural depth to this room. Consider pairing rich purple with brown accents to make textures pop.
Toddler's Dreamy Retreat
Blue purples are ideal for bedrooms because of their ability to make a room seem relaxing. Lavender carpeting and walls stand out against white beadboard to give this room a cottage feel. For a personalized touch, hang framed images of your little girl's favorite stuffed animals above the bed, and add custom pendant lighting designed to look like bouquets of roses.

Flirty Upstairs Bedroom
Lavenders and pinks are the essence of femininity. These blushing hues work in sync with other colors to give this bedroom a girly vibe without being over the top. To keep the eye entertained, a floral-print accent wall breaks up the mass of purple on the walls and ceiling. Designed by Tobi Fairley
Whimsical Nursery Nook
In this smaller space, less is more. An intimate rocking-chair nook is outfitted with silvery-purple dupioni silk curtains. Chic pendant lighting provides a glow for rocking the little one to sleep. For an extra touch of glamour, consider a hand-painted wall motif. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery
