Purple is a great colour for teens who have grown out of baby pink, but still fancy a girlish look. Intricate patterns and quirky accessories in this vibrant scheme creates a fun folk-style look, which bursts out from the room’s fresh white wall and metal bed frame. Pops of acid green on the shelves add to the fun adolescent style.
Retreat from the cold into a cosy haven of snug-as-a-bug quilted throws and flannel linens featuring elegant floral patterns. Begin with a neutral backdrop and white painted furniture then bring in purple printed fabrics, a painted focal wall or wall-to-floor curtains. Choose a purple tweed headboard for texture and cosy charm. Framed vintage bird prints hung on a rose-coloured wall are so romantic and co-ordinating accessories add to the feminine feel. A soft neutral carpet will balance the colour, keeping the scheme subtle.
Spending time with friends can be an exhausting experience for visitors and hosts alike so create a bedroom that provides your guests with somewhere calm and serene to recharge their batteries. The shades of grey and white seen here are gentle on the senses, the bed is wide enough to collapse on and relax, and the bedside radio is a personal touch your guests will appreciate.
Alternatively, purple can be surprisingly fresh when teamed with crisp white or complementary green and yellow. Accessorise with a soft, quilted throw and zingy cushions while a velvet upholstered chair or headboard adds a little luxury. The uplifting vibrancy will be a pleasure to wake up to.
