For the Love of Color: Purple

Right now I’m in the process of giving my bedroom a little makeover. Currently, it has a primary color palette of red, blue, and yellow with a bit of a country feel. Over the past year my tastes have changed and grown, so it’s time for something different. I plan to make the space a bit more modern, move some furniture around, and switch up the color scheme.

You’re probably wondering what all of this has to do with purple. Well, the plan for the new space focuses on jewel tones – rich magenta, deep purple, emerald green, and so on. I’m picturing a very clean, crisp space with pops of these deep saturated colors. As a result, my eyes have been drawn to these colors a lot lately.

I especially love this kitchen and the punch of purple on the accent wall. It really brings the space alive and demands attention. It’s fun to infuse color in a space, and this is such a fabulous way to do it. I also love how the other colors in the accessories work with the wall color.

Inspired by this kitchen space and my new bedroom, I thought I’d browse in some of my favorite stores and find pieces that would bring a pop of purple into your space. Once, I complete my little bedroom makeover, I’ll be back to share a few more ideas for working purple and other jewel tones into your decor.

As always, happy decorating!
