Ashley's "Pale Blue and Purple" Room

Pale Blue and Purple




West Sacramento, California



Colors Used

Eggplant Purple, Deep Blue, and Tan/Taupe

Color Inspiration

Our master bedroom is a true explosion of my husband and my color personalities. When starting this room, we had a blank slate. We immediately gravitated towards rich blue walls since blue is a color favorite for both of us. Once we established a blue/neutral palette, it was time to add a beautiful and bold accent color. We took a nod from our wedding and added “eggplant-toned” purple! Watching the room evolve on a very limited budget has been amazing! While it’s going to continue to evolve, we are head over heels for the results!

Color Tips

Pick colors that make you happy! At the end of the day, this is your space and it has to reflect you! Once you pick your favorite colors, find ways to mix them so that they compliment each other and don't conflict- you can achieve this by varying tones and amounts of each color.

Favoriting and voting have ended.

It's just 5 different views of the bed. Looks like the room is probably nice, but who can tell?

Despite the sad lack of good photos, I'm voting for this because it's beautiful.

This is a very soothing and tranquil color scheme for a bedroom. So restful.

Thanks for the extra pics- a very lovely bedroom! Again, pity that the pics here are so limited.

Some of the pics on your blog would have worked great for the CONTEST.

Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback everyone! In retrospect, I would have done the pictures differently. But, I'm glad you all are enjoying the room in the meantime! :) I know I'm loving a bunch of the spaces in the contest!
