Purple decor ideas: the new on-trend colour

When you think of autumn, you often picture deep and moody shades, from burnt terracotta and forest green to rich burgundy and inky navy. But there is one particular hue that stands out this cosy season. Say hello to alluring purple, one of the trendiest shades to spice up your rooms.

Recently, purple has been gaining popularity in the interiors world. For example, when I explored Top Drawer at Olympia London in Kensington, I was drawn to purple decor ideas. So, if you are into mauve colour palettes like me, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this roundup. I’ve included designs for all the rooms in your home, from kitchens through to bedrooms and bathrooms.

From fig colours to aubergine tones, these nature-inspired shades are set to revive any scheme. So, be it dark and moody or soft and pale, pick your favourite variation of purple to add a pop of colour to your rooms.

So, how can you embrace purple in your interiors? Well, you can opt for fringed seating solutions like the sofas and armchairs, but make sure they come in striking shades of purple. Or why not paint your living room walls in a deep plum hue (ceiling included)?

If you want to go one step further, refresh your kitchen cabinetry with durable paint in a dark lavender tone. Another decorating idea that caught my eye is the all-over look, which is ideal for creating a cocooning feeling.

In your bathroom, mix and match tiles in fig colours to add warmth or make a statement with a bold basin. Last but not least, in your bedroom, get comfortable with purple bed linen and decorate with frosted or fluted accessories.

There are so many ways in which you can implement this moody shade in your home, so take a look at these cool purple decor ideas that are guaranteed to get you inspired…
