{15} Beautiful Ways to Decorate Your Home With Purple

I have always loved purple. The entire spectrum of purples. Call it violet or lavender or fuchsia or Radiant Orchid, I adore it. Lots of people shy away from using it in their decor, but when done right, it can be really stunning.

In our old home, the Queen Anne bungalow, we painted the walls of the butler's pantry the palest lavender, then painted the interior of the exposed cabinets in a deep eggplant. The trim was painted a warm gray. I loved that tiny room, and actually spent quite a bit of time in there at a little built-in table.

Creating Moments of Beauty in Your Home

We all lead busy lives. We have children and pets and spouses and jobs. We have so many things to keep track of, and somehow, still make sure the grocery shopping is done, the laundry is folded, and dinner is on the table. Some of us have been blessed enough to live in a perpetual state of renovation on top of everything.

When your home is being demo'd and painted -- or whatever insanity is going on in your life at any particular moment -- sometimes you need to create a moment of beauty. One small place in your home that makes you smile, or reminds you to take a deep breath. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be beautiful to you.
