Are you looking to change up your bedroom decor? Maybe you want to elevate your style, and make your bedroom chicer and pulled together. Or maybe you have simply decided that you need a fresh new visual element to wake up your bedroom. The easiest way to change up your style is to alter your color scheme. Pick a new color to add to your room, something that relaxes and refreshes you, something that speaks to your style. Once you’ve chosen your color, add some major decor items like lampshades, throw pillows or picture frames that will help you tie your style together.
The pops of color are sure to add fresh layers and tones to your bedroom. If you’re looking for just the right color, why not try plum? Plum is a deep, sophisticated tone. It is simple, calming, regal, and can blend with a variety of accent colors. Traditionally, purple was a color reserved for royalty. So treat yourself like the king or queen you are, and add purple accents to your room!
For deeper, darker, cave-like rooms, consider pairing plum accents with black or deep brown colors. For a lighter, more spacious look, you can pair the plum decor with white or tan accents. Lighter colors will make the plum accents pop more, so it all depends on your personal style and aesthetic!
Here is a curated list of plum bedroom inspiration. Check out these 11 great plum themed bedrooms to get ideas for your own purple pad. We’ve linked to some great, simple items that will help you add some pizazz to your sleeping space. Keep scrolling to get inspired.
