Purple Wallpaper: The Guide

It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it cannot be denied that purple is by far one of the most interesting shades in the arsenal of the interior decorator. A fascinating blend of bold and passionate red with the calming powers of blue, purple wallpaper can produce surprising results in a plethora of styles, ranging from Romantic to Shabby Chic, from extravagant and sophisticated to elegant and contemporary. It’s a colour known for its many spiritual associations, representing wisdom, mystery, magic, creativity, and ambition. Purple is a rich colour defined by its many variations, each adding a different layer of mystique; from lilac and violet to aubergine and plum, it’s easy to find a shade of purple that matches your interior decoration style. When picking a purple wallpaper model, it’s important to keep in mind how much natural light the room receives, as for darker spaces a shade with red undertones is more suited than one with a larger proportion of blue.

Why should I choose a purple wallpaper model for my home?

Choosing purple wallpaper is both a declaration of style and testament to your desire to live in an uplifting and positive environment. Depending on the shade you pick, it can define an impressive feature wall or provide a more muted and relaxed background.

Purple is back in interior design

Like all things 80s, purple is back in fashion after a period where it was often ignored by interior designers. Its resurgence has been long overdue, as the scope of its shades creates vibrant looks that fill the room with an uplifting vibe, improving your mood every time you walk into the room.

Purple is a very versatile colour

The secret behind the versatility of the colour purple can be found in its origins: a mix of blue and red, two of the primary colours most used in interior design, this shade can be easily combined with a wide range of other tonalities to create a variety of different looks without clashing. Its wide-ranging cultural associations, from luxury to royalty to creativity and the spiritual world further add to its versatile nature.

Purple makes for a great statement colour

No other colour stands out like purple when it comes to picking a shade that makes a style statement. For centuries considered the colour of royalty, purple has always been associated with bravery and courage - as the Purple Heart medal aptly symbolises. A purple feature wall has a striking impact on any room, creating a visual cue and acting as a visual magnet.

Which other colours work best in combination with purple wallpaper?

Combined with other tonalities from the colour palette, purple wallpaper is known to create the backdrop for an exciting variety of interiors without ever losing its charming and relaxing qualities.

Purple and gold

No other colour combination exudes more of a sense of nobility and royal elegance than the combination of purple and gold. From coats of arms to royal guards’ uniforms, these two hues truly symbolise wealth, power, and grandeur. Replicate this sophisticated feel in your home with the right wallpaper in purple and gold, adding a regal touch that works wonderfully with matching accessories.

Purple and grey

Purple and grey are two primary tones known for their tranquil and welcoming character. A wallpaper featuring these two hues can be used to great effect in a cocooning bedroom, a cosy nursery, or a classic living room, perhaps combined with a large mirror. Swapping grey with silver creates a dreamlike, magical setup that will enchant girls of all ages.

Purple and blue

Two colours that originate from the same roots and are destined to be together, purple and blue are an on-trend match made in heaven. It’s not surprising that a bold blue-violet mix known as “Very Peri” was recently named Pantone colour of the year. Blue adds vibrancy and energy to the calming allure of purple, helping to create interiors that bring the energy of spring into your home.

Which type of purple wall décor tends to be most popular?

The varieties of purple range from rich, darker tones such as plum, mauve, or aubergine, to lighter hues such as violet, lavender, lilac, or periwinkle. Each shade brings a different energy to your wall décor concepts.

Deep purple

There are times to be subtle and understated and others when we simply want to make a style statement. Choosing a deep purple wallpaper is the perfect way to achieve the latter. A dark, plum purple wall décor model carries a royal elegance that pairs well with natural tones such as lilac and violet, creating a space that feels calm and sophisticated. Just make sure the room receives enough natural light or plan for warm indirect light sources before decorating.

Violet

One of the hottest colours in interior design, violet wallpaper, especially when paired with chromatically cohesive furniture and enriched with gold accents, creates interiors with a temptingly cosy and stylish feel. A colour associated with creativity, fantasy and mystery, its subtle power defines a room without feeling overbearing.

Mauve

A variety of purple that verges on the pink, mauve has a long history in interior design. Popularised in 1970s floral wall décor, it was all the rage in the 80s, too. Today, it is enjoying a well-deserved comeback. A dramatic and complex mix of different shades of pink, this throwback colour feels trendy and fresh, especially in a wallpaper featuring a deeply saturated mauve.

Which rooms are best suited to purple wallpaper?

We love the versatile and calm energy of purple for living rooms that feel elegant and stylish, for calm and relaxed bedrooms that guarantee a good night’s sleep, and for children’s rooms that feel welcoming and inspiring.

Living rooms

While the fierce and intense purple living room wallpapers that were popular a few years ago might have gone out of fashion, softer shades of purple that offer a more elegant feel are still very much on trend. A delicate, neutral purple wallpaper brings a sense of calm confidence and stability while having a warmer effect than the original blue from which it derives.

Bedrooms

A colour that is sometimes overlooked when it comes to decorating bedrooms, purple can be an incredibly stylish and versatile solution for creating a restful environment that can range from relaxing to dramatic, depending on the shade you pick. If you’re hoping to create a romantic boudoir, go for a rich tone like aubergine, while a soft hue like lilac is the perfect set-up for a calming room.

Children’s rooms

Traditionally often considered to be a bedroom colour preferred by girls, modern shades of purple can fit unisex concepts when paired with the right accent hues and furniture. However, bear in mind that in children’s rooms it is important to keep a cohesive feel by choosing matching chromatic elements. Due to its calming effect, purple is a great choice for children because it inspired them to both rest and play. Choose brighter shades for their mood-enhancing properties.
