Look What You Can Do with Purple

Is there anything more dramatic than the color purple? It invokes a sense of style. It’s the color of royalty. It creates a conversation piece wherever you put it. Here’s what you can do with purple in your next home decor project.

• Glass Chandeliers

A hand-blown glass chandelier is stunning, no matter where you install it. It’s all the more dramatic if the hand-blown glass is in a rich purple color. Seeing the light through purple glass and watching it dance off purple crystals draped on the chandelier puts a piece in your room you won’t be able to take your eyes off. It’s purple glamour at its finest.

• Lamps and Shades

If you want to rev up your room with purple accents, don’t forget to add them to your other lighting fixtures. A deep purple lamp shade is a rich choice to light up the corner of a room. Or bring in a lamp base with your favorite purple hue. If you can’t find a purple lamp base, grab a can of purple spray paint and make your own.

• Furniture Accents

With just a few pieces of furniture in a purple color palette, you can change the entire mood of any room. Add a couple of upholstered side chairs to a sitting room or cover your dining room chairs in purple. You can even paint the top of your desk in a grape color to make the room pop. It’s the perfect choice for bold color infusion into any space.

• Wonderful Walls

Go really wild with a purple accent wall. It’s a lot of color for a daring statement in a bedroom or living room. No one can call you color phobic when you paint your walls purple.

• Terrific Tile Work

Purple tile work in a bathroom backsplash adds just enough color in a small space to make it interesting. Use ceramic tiles mixed with coordinating colors. Or you can install glass tiles with color than transcends the glass and lights up the room.

• Bodacious Bedding

Adding purple bedding to your bedroom can certainly be bodacious with such a striking color. But, you’ll also marvel in how the textile application will soften the color and still give it a great presence in the room.

• Plants in Living Color

Nothing is more brilliant or more vibrant than a live plant with a natural purple color. Indoors or out, violet blooms are simply stunning anywhere you put them. Use purple wisteria, lavender or jasmine for a romantic, earthly addition to your space.
