Purple is a color that has been associated with royalty since the 12th century. It’s considered luxurious, and it creates an overall feeling of richness in a decorative scheme. It can also be used as an eccentric shade of color to create a spa-like feel or help you produce designs that are specifically unique depending on the type of purple you.
Regardless of how much or how little you want the color to be present, a lavished purple living room can be achieved using it as much or as little as you would like. A purplish living room can also be created by just adding in accents for more detail.
Are you considering adding purple to your living room and seeking advice on how to do so? Choose these ideas below for incorporating the luxurious color into a decorating theme.
1. Purple on the walls, or not?
Consider the quantity of purple in your room. If you already know the color of purple you want for space, decide whether it’s appropriate to have as much of that color or if it would be too strong.
Rooms painted deep purple will help create the sense of luxury that many people would expect from a room. However, keep in mind that darker shades can make your room seem smaller than it really is.
Painted walls that are darker shade can make a room appear smaller, but they can also offer a more intimate feel. For example, lighter, pale shades of purple paint on the wall may give the room a feeling of openness and even mimic the feeling of their home garden.
2. Purple accents
If purple doesn’t seem like a color, you would need walls painted to get the effect; use accents instead. For example: use furniture and area rugs with that perfect shade of purple, drape some window treatments in an accent color of purple (so there is still some light coming in).
When designing your living space, you can use accents to create a room in which the color’s many hues are visible. This is how: by controlling how dark or light the accent colors are; their size (e.g., a large area rug vs. pillow); and the amount of purple they contain.
3. Color coordinate
If you’re using purple in your room, try combining it with complementary colors to purple. They let the beauty of the purple really shine through without being overpowered by competing colors.
Purple and white are a popular choice for modern rooms, and deep shades of purple are paired with black. In addition, light shades of purple are often paired with yellow to create peaceful homes. When setting the theme for your room, coordinating colors with purple will help complete your look.

The Purple Room
What better way to go all-in on purple than with this gorgeous room? White string lines the trim, and a few green items blend nicely throughout, but otherwise, everything is done up in gorgeous shades of purple. Please take caution when trying to replicate this design. It may not be as easy as it looks!
This room has three different shades of the color purple. The wall color and wallpaper are the same shade, as are the ottoman, lampshades, and rug. There’s even a loveseat/couch, pillows, and a lamp that has a purple color too. Using more than three different shades in a room will make it look chaotic.
Another key thing to keep in mind is the number of purples colors in this room. The designer used wood furniture for consistency throughout the space, which adds a clean and elegant look.
I am not too thrilled with the gold mirror. I believe you could find a more appropriate selection from one of our silver-colored or brushed nickel mirrors. It is possible that the designers wanted something different to catch your eyes, but I prefer things to be in sync aesthetically and would like that to apply to all surfaces in this room as well.
Country-Cottage Style Living Room
To achieve a cozy cottage style, blend claret and plum with an earth-tone wood texture. Use mauve greys, browns, and greys for accessories to prevent the color scheme from overdrive.
Balance the look with weathered wood coffee tables and mix autumnal prints to capture the feel of being outdoors. Finally, dress up your space with plenty of blankets for comfort.

Decorate Living Room With Dusty Purple
Dusty purple makes for a rich and indulgent environment, which gives the room a plush feeling with heavy velvets, buttoned upholstery, curtains of marbled textiles, touches of old gold.
Purple tones in artwork or fabrics can make a room feel dated, so try flat and chalky instead. Furniture with lots of texture will marry the two and breathe new life into your decor. For extra warmth, add blue accents to work.
Sleek Purple Living Room
While it is arguable which colors look best together, some combinations are more popular than others. For example, the purple and white complement each other in this living room without being too matchy-matchy.
Mix Jewel Colour With Boho Style Living Room
Evolve your boho-style room with contemporary furniture instead of a traditional country or vintage styles. This will give the space an eclectic feel and allow you to change it in the future.
To create an elegant boho style, use dark, mid-weight, and light colors in layers. A watercolor or oil painting print can provide a finishing touch to any piece of furniture. Oversized chandeliers are also effective for achieving this look without much effort.
