Lilac bedroom

 Lilac bedroom

The bedroom is the most intimate part of the house. I want her atmosphere to be cozy and relaxing. Today, the center of attention is unusual shades, the design in faded and customary beige tones is outdated and looks boring. Lilac bedroom - the original design solution. This shade is unique and has several features.

Special features

The lilac shade is not an independent color, as many mistakenly believe: it is one of the most beautiful tones, which is part of the group of multifaceted purple. Although it seems simple, but the lilac shade is complex, as it is based on a combination of strong colors, albeit diluted with white.The combination of two principles (male and female) makes the tone controversial and attractive.

Due to the duality of onset, the lilac shade can be cold or warm. This feature must be taken into account when creating a design so that the overall look of the room is harmonious and cozy.

When you add a note of blue lilac becomes cool and brings a feeling of freshness to the interior.

A pinkish undertone gives a special festive (or even romantic) mood.

Neutral shade, in which the balance of two colors is observed, gives a feeling of peace and relaxation.

The choice of hue concentration in the design of the bedroom can not be accidental. It is necessary to build on the general idea in order to bring the right mood and atmosphere into the room. In addition, it is worth bearing in mind that lilac is a special tone, it is far from being combined with all the colors of the color palette: if you break the color harmony, you don’t want to go into the bedroom.

Gentle shade multifaceted, but it is more prone to feminine. It is appropriate in the women's bedroom, the design of the hall and the children's room of girls.

He does not suit men at all, even if there is a blue in the shade.


Lilac hue has long enjoyed success among royal families and nobles of different countries. He is considered mysterious and magical, he symbolizes refinement and speaks of a strong nature, in whose soul the hurricane of feelings lurks. The bedroom design in lilac colors is chosen by creative, selfless, generous and sensual personalities with a non-standard and eccentric character, but not deprived of impulsiveness.

The tone "breathes" nobility, it provides color therapy, but depending on the concentration, it affects the person and the general appearance of the interior. He can change the conceived style from positive, encouraging and joyful to sad (and even sad). Being the main focus of the bedroom, it cannot be the only design background.

At a minimum, two soft contrasts will have to be added to it.

If you can see a bluish undertone in the shade, you should definitely add a warm shade to it. In addition, to make the design in lilac look brighter, you can add a few black or brown touches (interior details - for example, the colors of furniture, picture frames, armchairs, dressing table).

What are the shades combined?

The lilac shade is somewhat legible in the selection. To choose a contrast to it, you can use the range of color combinations.

Opposite lilac shade is yellow, next to it - green and orange. Since the tone is light, the contrasts should also be light.

Lilac goes well with the classic colors of the palette:

  • White and beige convey the atmosphere of lightness, they add light, fill the bedroom with comfort and visually increase the space of the room.
  • Brown is an excellent component in the interior. However, it must be used correctly. It is not recommended to interrupt the main (lilac) tone, so a dark color should be just enough to highlight lilac on a general background.
  • The black - Another good color that has the unique ability to brighten any color palette. One of the best options is the combination of lilac with gray.
  • Lilac color successfully combined with gold and silver. These colors bring luxury to the design and highlight the uniqueness of the idea.

How to apply?

There are two ways to apply color. You can paint or wallpaper with walls, ceiling, as well as choose a method in which color is used as accents.In the second case, you can convey the color through furniture and any interior items (for example, chandeliers, curtains, footstools, floor lamp, paintings, photo wallpapers).


Accents can be not only explicit, but also emphasized modest (discreet drawing on textile bed linen or rug, decorative pillows, curtains, elements of the picture and even a candle).

A feature of the use of color is the ability to use two lilac tones: one is lighter, the second is slightly brighter. This will save the bedroom from despondency and “revive” the overall picture. The light tone can be emphasized more brightly (for example, to bring warmth and joy to the design, you can add a slight accent in the fuchsia color).

Walls and Cloths

As for the walls, one of the most relevant modern techniques is the use of wallpaper. If earlier it was considered beautiful to decorate a wall with a single color and pattern, today this technique is outdated. It is better to use different shades - regardless of whether there is a print on the wallpaper or not.

And even more interesting if the design will be wallpaper in a contrasting color.

It is not very difficult to convey the beauty of a lilac shade: you can accent the area above the bed, add a lighter tone at the edges and make the transition smooth with the help of the third color. Given this nuance, we must not forget that for the composition you need to repeat the shades in the interior.

If walls or ceiling dominate, the lower part of the room should not be overloaded with an abundance of paint. It is enough, for example, to convey harmony through the textiles of curtains, carpet nap or fresh flowers. The ceiling is easier to make tension. So you can show not only the beauty of color, but also the impeccability of the surface.

Accent using photo

Wall mural - an interesting design technique, with which you can demonstrate the idea and convey the desired mood. Often it is the wall-paper that helps to create the right atmosphere and gives the style of the bedroom. For example, flowering cherry blossoms on the wall and elegant porcelain vases will indicate Japanese style, delicate pink and lilac flowers will hint about romance.

7 a photo

The drawing can occupy the whole area of ​​one wall or be its small accent - depending on the size of the room, the chosen style and theme. Choose a wallpaper in lilac colors is correct.

The shade itself does not allow aggression, therefore the theme must also be “tender.”

If different motifs are allowed in the wallpaper print (lace, stripes, geometry, flowers - and children have their own patterns), the most relevant themes for photo wallpapers are flowers, plants, and sakura.No nude female bodies, sexuality is needed here: the general atmosphere speaks of the sublime. Such paintings will spoil the whole idea, because this is the "facade" of the room.

What to look for?

In order not to disturb the harmony of the lilac bedroom design, it is worth considering a few nuances:

  • the influence of color should not be excessive (several accents are enough);
  • You can not add to the lilac tone more than three contrasts;
  • emphasize the beauty and tenderness of the shade need soft contrasts - taking into account the compatibility of shades;
  • choosing the method of applying color, you should not use all the techniques to the maximum (this is devoid of taste and will overload the overall look of the bedroom);
  • you can not add to the design of the original tone of lilac (red or blue): they will destroy the soft lilac background and create a negative perception of the room;
  • choosing lilac photo wallpapers or ordinary materials, you should correlate the size of the picture with the area of ​​the room (the smaller the room, the smaller the picture);
  • This shade is able to change the visual space of a room; it should not be too bright (light tone increases the space of even a small room).

Design Ideas

Thanks to creative specialists, the design of a modern bedroom is often similar to a real work of art. Everything is very beautiful, harmonious and leaves a pleasant impression.

With roses

If the area of ​​the bedroom allows, you can make a chebbi-chic design in a delicate lilac shade with roses. For a basis take a gentle shade of a lilac, connecting it with white and light gray color. The wall at the head is decorated with blossoming buds. The ceiling, the door, the bedside table, the mirror should be white. The remaining walls can be painted lilac paint to match the bed.

To make the interior harmonious, it is worth picking up beautiful bedding and pillows to match the bed (or walls), hang white curtains with lilac patterns and add two soft armchairs to the design, as well as a cape for the window sill. The final touch of the idea will be the gold trim of the chandelier, table lamp and door.


It is possible to equip the nursery in the lilac-green range. Since the contrast can divert all attention to itself, it is used to a minimum, leaving behind a purple hue the right to excellence.

To develop the creative potential of the child, it is enough to make one wall bright, leaving the rest white.Interior items (bed, desk, two pedestals and a block with shelves) are selected in white.

To shade white, on the floor you can lay a carpet or just a light gray laminate. Gray will soften the transition of lilac and green.

You can add green along with a related lilac tone: for example, dark purple. This may be a small curtains, upholstery decorative pillows, bedding pattern.


The original bedroom design can be created with a moderate use of color. To show the beauty of lilac color, you can take as a basis the diluted tone of fuchsia, choosing bed linen with pillows, curtains and photo wallpaper over the headboard.

As a contrast, you can use a trio of different classic shades: gray, white and brown. You can arrange a chair and an accent wall (except for the picture) in a gray tint, the ceiling and the other walls are white. The floor, bedside table, desk and door will look harmonious if their shade is light brown.

The lilac shade seems simple enough, but it does not give way at all: the size of the flower clearly defines the main role of the main tone.

Color game

One of the interesting design options is a smooth transition of shades of lilac. To the main color, you can choose a warm beige. In order not to disturb the tenderness of the intended composition, the beige color should be chosen in such a way that it is almost identical to the color of the furniture or floor.

For example, beige color can be repeated in the gold finish of the original wardrobe.

You can pick up a bed, cabinets, ceiling areas and the floor in beige, and the walls of the room, a vase, bedding textiles and decorative pillows - in lilac. The third shade will be white, which will be decorated with a lace pattern on the front of the closet, as well as several soft pillows. A soft trick to ensure a smooth transition of tones in this design is lighting: the included lamps perfectly emphasize the boundaries, but at the same time they connect them with a white-beige tone.

In order to “revive” the style of the room, pillows are better to choose a different shade of saturation. Even without a bright touch, even the most attractive, delicate design can become boring.
