There is a particular color popping up in our interior design these days. Amidst all the millennial pink, there is a fair amount of lavender out there. It’s a sweet shade that adds a touch of personality and surprise to a space without the neon punch. It’s fresh too so you can use it everywhere from traditional homes to contemporary pads. Lavender works especially well in bedrooms due to the soft color with cool undertones. You’ll go to bed each night feeling relaxed and wake up refreshed. Here are 10 bedrooms to inspire you to go lavender. You won’t regret it.
When you are curating an eclectic home, decorating choices can be made more on whim and preference than by the rulebook. Lavender is the perfect shade to paint your bedroom because it will easily set off all your knick knacks and patterns.
One great aspect of lavender is that it’s a lighter shade of purple. So if you genuinely love purple, a lavender bedroom gives you all the opportunity for purple accents and patterns around the room.
Of course if you’d rather go lighter than darker in your bedroom, make lavender your stand out color. It will look soft and comforting against any shade of cream or gray you choose.
Pink and purple is a natural combination for a girly girl’s bedroom. When you’ve got enough blush pink to last you a lifetime, switch to accents of lavender to break it up. They’ll match because they are both in the pastel family.
It’s well known that white furniture against white walls feels rather sterile instead of clean. Give your white furniture a lift with a coat of lavender paint to really show it off.
Since lavender is a cool color, you’ll discover that it pairs very well with other cool colors like green and blue. So it makes it the perfect shade to infuse into a nursery that’s swathed in pastels already.
Not only is lavender a great color for the homes with wide trim and old squeaky doors, it’s perfect for new sleek modern homes too. Use it in your modern white bedroom to make a soft statement without straying from modern sensibilities.
Old home bedrooms are fraught with little nooks and crannies that can seem rather dingy depending on what color you paint the room. But with lavender, you’re safe because it always looks soft and beautiful, no matter how much light it gets.
Did you know that you can find lavender wallpaper? There might not be anything more chic than a lovely soft bedroom that’s covered in textured lavender walls. No matter what else goes on in terms of colors and styles, your walls will always be a source of comfort at the end of a long day.
At the end of the day, you need to be true to you and your style in your bedroom. So go all out! Lavender paint, matching curtains, lavender furniture and textiles, as long as it makes you happy then who cares how matchy matchy it is.
