Purple is an attractive color, because it brings pleasure to the eyes. With purple, there are a lot of ideas that you can come up with, such as a simple bedroom with purple walls.

However, since purple has several different tones, you can also play with them.

Purple is also known as a color that’s strong and dramatizing. To ease your sight, another alternative is to mix purple with other colors, such as white, green or yellow.

Then, you can adjust the atmosphere by combining the mood—that comes from the color choice—and the furnishing choice.

Pop Colored Purple Bedroom

If not painting the entire walls with purple, at least, you give the room with pops of purple. That is actually enough to bring the dramatic effect into your bedroom.

So, to give you some pictures of how a purple bedroom looks like, we have provided you with many choices of purple bedroom design ideas. Let’s have a look!

If You Are Beginner, Just Keep It Simple

Simple Purple Bedroom Design

For beginners, it may be difficult to figure out which colors go splendidly with purple. Then, this is a purple bedroom design idea for you, if you are a beginner.

As you can see, purple is painted on the walls, but the ceiling is left in white and so does the bottom of the walls where white trims are placed.

Since the carpet and furniture are not purple, you need to have at least one element that can hold everything together.

Use A Little Bit Lilac Color

Soft Purple Bedroom Color Idea

Sometimes, the original purple is too dramatic, so some people go with the softer purple instead. This one is an excellent example when you want to be surrounded by lighter colors, but you also eager to insert purple color still.

Combining purple and lilac is really a great idea. Here, you see that this idea choses lavender, which is a softer purple, to decorate the bed.

Then, if you want to keep it soft, choose lilac color to decorate the rest of the area.

To make the room more unique, you can use exposed bricks to decorate the walls.

Before the 80s, purple is the least picked color. These days, we recognize it as one of the most popular choices in the color wheel, especially when it comes to romance.

That’s why this idea is perfect for those of you who want to enhance the romance between you and your partner.

So, already the headwall catches our attention. The rectangle pattern is really a unique touch.

Then, the drapes are also in purple, which supports the level of purple-ness in the room. Although another color for the drapes is also fine.

To ease the depth of purple, you can choose white and brighter shade like gray to decorate the rest of the area.

Go Masculine With Purple? Why Not?

Purple Bedroom Design For Gentlemen

Some people won’t believe it when we say purple bedroom is also suitable for men. All these years, the color has always been referred to as “girly” color.

This ISN’T a fact, because, in fact, we’ve proven that masculinity and purple can be in the same room together.

For men, let’s go with a daring purple like violet tone. As you see, the bed and the wall behind the tv are painted in violet. Meanwhile, the drapes, door and tiles are rich in brown-ish shade.

Bold Shades Makes Strong Character

Some people want their bedroom to look soft and vulnerable, but we understand that you are unique and you crave for something that’s stronger than that.

Here, we’ve provided a very dramatic purple bedroom design idea for the queens and kings out there.

First of all, the headwall is decorated with unique flower pattern. The flowers are colored in purple, while the background is black—same as the entire walls.

Then, purple continues to dominate the room by being applied on headboards, pillows, bed and blanket.

If you want to enhance the drama, you can install a dramatic chandelier too.

When drama is not on your list…

This idea is suitable for those who prefer warmth than heat from all the drama the previous idea has to offer.

The atmosphere created from this combination of color is quite natural, because the purple and other colors used in this room are coming from the brighter shade of the wheel (read: color wheel).

For example, the headwall that is decorated by a distinct mirror and two scones is painted in a lighter brown-ish color, while the carpet and the ceiling are left in versatile white. Then to accompany the violet color on the bed, you can also paint the other wall with violet.

Go For Two-Tone Color

Two Tone Purple Bedroom

If combining purple and another color is not something that you’re here for, then this may be the answer to your prayer.

Here, you use only purple, but different tones. As you can see on the headwall and the door at the back, the upper part is fading purple and the lower part is more of a violet-ish color.

This concept is then continued to the bedding. The blanket and pillows have two different tones of purple.

Purple All The Way!

Choose Complementary Color

In this idea, you’ll be introduced to a lot of different tones of purple, such as violet, aubergine or even pink.

However, if there’s no one element that holds them together, too many tones of purple can cause a little bit of chaos to the eyes.

To avoid such thing, glue them with neutral color like gray, for example, here, you can use gray on the headwall.

Purple Accessories in a Purple Bedroom

For a purple bedroom theme, the bed is not the only thing that can be transformed into a purple-themed area, but the accessories around the bed can also be touched with purple.

In this design, purple dominated the flower pots. The pot is rather unique, because it emphasizes modernity, even almost futuristic.

Other than that, the headwall seems to be decorated with distinct patterns, and we know that such uniqueness will add more value to the room. To build the atmosphere, we suggest you to play with the lighting.
