Prince Purple Color Palette
The blue and purple color palette, combined with layered patterns, creates a serene girl's bedroom that's equal parts whimsy and style. For a similar look, try (from L to R) Glidden Regal Purple (56RB 09/302), Behr Island Aqua (P450-5), Glidden Heavenly Blue (70BG 68/056) and Sherwin-Williams Flashy Sapphire (P520-7).
Purple Contemporary Bedroom With Gold Bed
In a small bedroom, a dramatic color makes the room feel cozier. Prince Purple coats the walls and ceiling in this apartment bedroom, creating an intimate feel.
Rich, Colorful Kitchen
A young family wanted an open kitchen perfect for entertaining. For a colorful surprise, the designers went with a rich purple island accented with brass details.
The moody hues of this master bedroom perfectly offset the sweeping artwork that fills the wall above the bed.
Inviting Wine Bar
Once a storage closet, the loft bar at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase is now fit to provide homeowners an easy spot to mix a cocktail. Designer Linda Sullivan shows how good design can happen in unexpected places by pairing blue, lacquered cabinetry with Timorous Beasties' purple and indigo Colonnade Blotch wallpaper and brass hardware.
A Pop of Purple
A pop of purple behind these built-in shelves makes a basic white bookshelf stylish.
Eclectic Guest Room With Asian Accents
Asian-inspired patterns adorn the custom upholstered headboard and an antique armchair in this eclectic bedroom. A vibrant purple folding screen complements the colors in the fabric and brightens an otherwise dark corner.
Colorful Outdoor Room
This outdoor pavilion is complete with a bar, refrigerator and a wide-screen television accented with a Prince Purple accent wall. The two banquette seats have storage areas underneath to hold all the entertainment supplies.
Bold Dining Area
A wallpapered accent wall adds a decorative pattern to the elegant look of this transitional dining room. A large turquoise rug grounds the dining table, and the blue and deep purple stripes on the curtains tie in the rug and the purple tufted chairs at the end of the table.
Refreshing, Bright Nook
Prince Purple, light blue, and orchid colors on the patterned daybed fabric give the space a punch of color while coordinating with the teal paint on the wall. White built-ins provide a clean, structured backdrop, so the colors stand out even more.
