Purple is a colour most commonly associated with royalty, so why not add a touch of opulence and elegance to your room with a purple paint scheme? Pink and purple rooms don’t have to be overly feminine as long as you choose the right hues.

Read on for our guide to purple and pink room ideas.

Purple room ideas

Looking for purple room décor ideas? Whether you want to create a pink and purple living room or a pink and purple bedroom, here are our top tips.

When it comes to decorating a room, there are many purple shades to choose from. Deeper shades evoke drama and warmth and pair well with fabrics like velvet and chenille, as well as metallics and glass décor. Building on a darker shade will create a luxurious space to unwind at the end of the day.

Alternatively, a dusty purple room can be very feminine and sweet. The soothing lighter shades are fairly neutral and give the walls enough interest without appearing too sugary. Adding light fabrics like gingham and linen will give the room more of a country-cottage feel, especially when paired with distressed wood in the furniture.

Using dusty purple paint in any room is one way to introduce other colours, too, as this hue can be styled with blues and greens when decorating. Adding a complementary wallpaper or wall art can really make this foundation shade pop.

Purple country-style dining room

The introduction of purple in the dining room can be a very classy move when done correctly. Some shades can pack a punch, while others are more classically subdued – it just depends on what you’re looking for in your purple dining room.

Purple has also been associated with royalty as far back as Roman times. The deep shade evokes a sense of richness and can bring a heavy dose of elegance into your home when used right. Working with purple can be risky but very rewarding when you get it right.

Which shades should I choose?

Many country-style dining room ideas will suggest using a millennial lilac or lavender shade on the walls, paired with pink vintage floral curtains and white linen soft furnishings. All your dining room will be missing is a long wooden dining table and a massive spread for all the family. The pastel wall shade will remind you of spring year-round and distract from reality – whatever the weather.

However, a modern dining room will need something more prominent, like Dulux Mulberry Burst. The rich purple pop of colour will add a touch of luxe to any dining room, especially when paired with metallics and glass furnishings. Wine shades are considered livelier and warmer, so guests will feel instantly welcomed into your home.

“I love deep blue-violet. It reminds me of my simple pleasures: blue jeans and starry nights.” – Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director.
