Purple Haze

Purples are having a major moment when it comes to interior design, and it’s not hard to understand why. These rich, sumptuous hues call to mind royalty and make the perfect addition to any space— when they’re done right. The following post provides some expert recommendations on how you can incorporate the colour that’s on everyone’s minds into your home.

A purple room: Purple, a combination of red and blue, can be both warming and cooling, depending on the shade you choose. At the cooler end of the spectrum, shades like our Velvet Plum, Cover Story, and Pamper Night can instantly add a relaxing vibe to a space, and shades like Fuchsia Fizz and Scarlet Ribbon will add more energy. Purple also complements many colours and tastes, so it makes an ideal, on-trend backdrop.


A purple rug: Forgo your standard neutrals and try something that packs a punch when it comes to your floors. Purple rugs come in a variety of textures and will add depth and style to whichever space they inhabit. Once again, purple goes great with a variety of other colours, so a purple rug will look stunning under or alongside your furniture.



Purple furniture: Step out of your comfort zone this season and invest in a feature piece that’ll enliven your interiors. Pretty purple pieces such as chairs, sofas, tables, and ottomans may be just what your room needs to really shine!  Pair these feature pieces with your existing neutrals for a stylish pop of colour. 


Purple curtains: Don’t want to commit to purple walls but still want to make a statement with this must-have colour? Curtains can make a bold addition to any room, and installing purple curtains will cloak your space in a dazzling hue. Best of all, they are inexpensive, simple to put up, and can always be taken down if you don’t like the look.



Purple accessories: Purple accessories are a fantastic way to add the colour to your space without overpowering it. Purple pillows, throws, vases, frames, planters, etc, can all be easily incorporated into most spaces, without any fuss! When it comes to your accessories, playing with textures is always a good idea. Why not try a fuchsia velvet pillow? Or a violet faux fur throw?
