Layered Lavenders

The entire great room is layered with lavender tones, from the walls and area rug to the upholstery and artwork. When combined, the overall effect is soft and light rather than overly rich and saturated. That’s the result of white accessories that help neutralize the purple tones of the lavender.

Shining Star

One of the largest factors in pulling together a cohesive holiday color scheme in a large space is the Christmas tree. Everything on and around the tree was chosen to coordinate with the rest of the room, from the dove grey and white tones to the ribbon garland, ornaments and gift wrap on its branches.

Grey Undertones

To ensure that colors coordinate without becoming matchy-matchy, choose tints and shades of the dominant color that have grey undertones. The glass ornaments, silk ribbon garland and graphic cutouts all feature medium shades of lavender. This results in a more understated, wintry approach to purple rather than a rich, royal vibe.
