Purple Dining Room

My Picks

Explore these pretty purple dining rooms to see how the color is anything but one-note. Purple is a versatile color that runs the gamut from warm and inviting to cool and calming. The color has represented royalty for hundreds of years, so it makes for the perfect inclusion in a dining room outfitted with plenty of drama. Add visual interest to an all-white or neutral dining room by including accessories such as a purple patterned accent rug, purple chair cushions, or pretty wall art. Contrast purple-painted walls with warm wood furnishings and white-painted trim. Although the color purple can complement a variety of decorating styles, it's important to choose paint colors wisely, as it will greatly impact the overall look and feel of your dining space. If you're in the mood for something light and airy, choose a purple hue with lots of blue in it, such as lilac or lavender. Or, if you'd like to create a room that's more rich and elegant, opt for a shade of purple with red undertones, such as merlot or eggplant. No matter the hue, purple looks best when it's paired with plenty of shimmering, glamorous accessories.
