Here is a perfect example of how purple can be a dainty accompaniment to a delicate scheme. The pretty look is brought to life with a flock of purple and orange birds flying over a beautiful eau-de-nil sky. An understated lavender headboard and cushion picks out the light amethyst feathers while simple bed linen and furniture adds to the country charm.
Using variations of one colour is a sophisticated approach. In this bedroom violets, from lilac pink to deep aubergine have both masculine and feminine appeal with a bold panel at the head of bed like a swathe of the night sky. On the blush layered bed a harlequin throw exhibits a modern take on patchwork quilting. The geometric shapes pick out the rectangular lines of the abstract design rug below. A panel of ballerina pink curtains at the window softens the strong contrast in tone.
Create a delightful place for family and friends to stay with a beautifully decorated guest bedroom. The furniture in this neutral attic bedroom makes best use of space, with two rich wood sleigh beds, small bedside tables and a tallboy for overnight storage. Make the room welcoming with chunky knitted throws and stylish buttoned cushions. A Roman blind and printed cushions make a small window seat a dreamy spot.
The refreshing floral feature wall marks the start of a complementary purple and green colour scheme in this modern bedroom. It is then continued with an inviting purple throw and zingy lime cushions. The neutral carpet and white furniture balance the room to keep the look bright, while a velvet chair and headboard adds a little luxury.
