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.
Purple is a daring shade choice for any room, but with the right mix of complementary colours, graphic effects and intelligently designed lighting, the colour can take on a serious sophistication. The large print graphic repeat of the wallpaper behind the smaller graphic of the headboard fabric works to create a layered look that is unified by the strong wall colour to the right. Dark cushions and a bright acrylic bedside light interplay for balance.
