‘Purple and turquoise?’ you say. Well yes, it really works, and works with ‘wow’! Alone, this dual painted purple bedroom could be dark and eerie, but a panel of turquoise floor-to-ceiling curtains and matching jewel-bright satin bed linen lifts the scheme adding uplifting energy. An artistic ragged-edge, gold Chinoiserie wallpaper above the bed makes a decorative and opulent alternative to a headboard.
The bed in this loft-style bedroom has been dressed simply in pale purple. Exposed brick walls and a unique customised bed featuring reclaimed antique shutters is softened by the pretty bedding. Mix and match tones of flax, oyster and lilac for a relaxed, calming, uncluttered feel to the room. ‘Oyster catcher’ motif scatter cushions add a little interest to the preloved style scene.
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.
Opt for a quirky decorating theme in a simple guest room. In this neutral space, artwork and cushions with a royal theme bring the scheme to life. A mismatching wooden bedstead, bedside table and mirror keep the feel relaxed and lived-in, while a wool throw with an acid bright stripe is a nice complementary addition to the turquoise-bordered cushion.
