Shades of purple are being spotted everywhere this season.  And now, this intriguing color can translate beautifully to fall interiors in fabric patterns, accents, furniture and more.  You may be wondering how to introduce shades of purple to fall interiors without looking overdone or overpowering.  The answer is simple:  Discover what works! Purple coordinates with many colors and textures giving you the power to define and shape the hue to your liking!

Shades of Purple

Purple is a versatile color.  From lovely lilac to violet, shades of purple draw heavily on it’s surroundings.  Lighter shades of purple like lavender and mauve, exude femininity and are best paired with a neutral or pastel based scheme.  Soft shades of purple create a sense of comfort and relaxation.  Use fabric texture to add dimension to lighter hues, adding to a laid-back feel.  Go bold with rich shades of plum, aubergine and violet.  The regal tones call for attention and makes a statement in any space.  Take the traditional route with deep solid fabrics like Milano Burgundy and London Amesthyst.  Looking for something more unique?  Bump it up a notch with eclectic fabric patterns.  Biko is a fun quirky ikat pattern against a dry linen ground.  The contrasting linen and sheen textures make the ikat dots pop against a neutral background.  Match accents with complimentary pattern color to ensure the theme is cohesive throughout the space.

Purple Monchromatic

There’s no such thing as too much purple!  If purple is your favorite color, maybe a monochromatic space is the ideal choice.  Break up purple spaces with color fabric patterns and neutral window treatments.  To avoid an overwhelming space, incorporate neutral tones and colors in window treatments and upholstered furniture.  To soften the view, we chose full length draperies in Burke Wool Plain Camel Hair.  The drapery style gives the illusion of height and keeps the attention on the lively upholstered sofa and flanking Garland Chairs in Gylfie Fuchsia.  What do you like about this space?

Purple Accents

Shades of purple are great for home accents.  Toss a pile of purple pillows on a sofa, chair or bed for an added punch of color.  Match purple pillows and accents to window treatments or painted walls.  For a subtle look, choose lighter shades of purple.  Light purple shades are visually calming and easily translate to every room in the house!  Try contrasting light purple prints with white and pastel hues.

 

Purple Custom Furnishings

Invite guests to linger in your fall home with upholstered seating.  Our Burton Chair in Bandini Plum is a total knock out.  Bandini is a fresh, fun print with a weave effect that gives the pattern a needlepoint look.  Eclectic fabrics, like Bandini, are great a choice for custom sofas, chairs and ottomans.  Throw a custom piece in a living area to draw attention to a fascinating view.  We have over 250 furniture frames with customizable detail and styling options, allowing you to create truly unique furnishings that fit your home and lifestyle.
