Purple is another color that I do not have in my home. I think the lighter shades are pretty while the darker shades are very dramatic. I just tend to decorate with warmer colors. 

 

Like my thread on pink, it took a bit of time on the Internet to find a few rooms with shades of purple that I thought looked nice. Do you like any of these photos?

 

Do you have any purple in your homes?

I have a couple of purple accents.  I don't care for all that purple in any of the photos.

I don't have any shades of purple unless I do it as an accent with red, navy, burgandy, forest green and cream as a floral arrangement in the fall.

 

I like the last two pictures, but I'm not fond of that bedroom furniture.

My bedroom walls are painted lavender and when I have it painted again, I will choose a shade of purple, not dark, but light as it is now.  I love the colors of purple.

I like lavender and purple but I don't use them in decor or clothing.  Weird,right?

I don't have any purple in my home either, but my mom has a purple accented bedroom and it is beautiful!

 

I love the 2nd photo here of the bedroom-very tastefully done in my opinion! Since it is such a strong color, you have to be careful not to overdo it...The 3rd photo os very nicely done as well. The 1st photo is pretty too, but I don't care for the blue with the purple....

i love to wear the color purple.  i actually like looking at those photos, and i think the rooms look so pretty, but i would never consider this in my own home.

Not a huge lover of purple but I do like the third picture.
