At the other end of the spectrum, the lighter shades of purple are more soothing and gentle. Not so sugary sweet, lilac or soft lavender are pretty and feminine. The tone is light enough to give walls interest while remaining fairly neutral and can look appealing in pretty florals and gingham fabrics. Furnish with pale wood furniture or a traditional metal bed.
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.
