In an informal or more formal living room, nine times out of ten the main focal point of the room and main seating will be the sofa, or the largest sofa if you have more than one. Recently, we’ve been using our sofas as an item of function and style, and being bolder with colours and textures to enhance our living rooms.
Purple works well in living rooms as a colour, because of its rich, relaxing, cooling yet quite central properties, with a spectrum that stretches from pastel soft lilac tones, to dramatic and brooding plums. You can use the colour purple to create almost any kind of living room atmosphere.
These beautiful homes have added a purple sofa to their living rooms, turning up the colour and the style volume. Be inspired by these funky, modern, and stylish purple sofas that will inspire you to add a splash of purple to your own living or family room:
1. Purple And Taupe
Because of the closeness of the colours, purple works well with taupe as it acts as a neutralizer to purple but makes the bolder purple tones stand out, while not clashing.
2. Royal Charm
The colour purple has royal connotations in Europe, and this velour roll top sofa adds a touch of royalty and elegance to a quirky and minimal studio flat.
3. Mixing Warm And Cool
Purple errs on the cool side of the colour wheel, but its closeness to warmer pinks and reds mean that it can look stunning against cool tones – like the vast blue sky in the background – or warmer tones like the orange in this living room.
8. Cool Purple Accents
If you like to play it minimal with colour, you can add elegance to a greyscale living room by adding splashes of purple soft furnishings.
9. Stunning Jewel Tones
Purple can be used as a simple base colour for your living room, not as a feature colour. This examples uses purple and taupe colour palette with splashes of bright blue for a cool and striking style.
There’s no denying that purple is dynamic, adaptable, luxurious and soft – in fact this is a colour that can be anything you want it to be. Use your imagination and your personality to find the right purple for you.
