Help for new bedroom color!

Currently a soft pink but the wallpaper behind the bed will be going. Would like to stick with something to keep using a purple. This will be our winter project.

Hi there!
I love your bedspread. I could imagine any of these three paints below to coordinate with that pattern! Perhaps just paint an accent wall [where the headboard is placed] since the duvet cover is a saturated purple.

Hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Michelle C., IIDA

We would like to do away with wall paper all together. I love the ideas so far.

I suggest keeping the purple very subtle and going with grey walls. Add some throw pillows with different patterns. This grey has a lilac undertone without being too obvious.

Adding some silver would update your room and add some glam. Art for above the bed.

Removing the wallpaper will surely make a big difference. You seem to have lots of wood and all of different essence and color. Do not be afraid to paint the wood, it makes a statement. I would paint that piece in front of the bed. Accent wall in that autumn purple as suggested, would look great. Get some cushions in different textures to break that "kit look" that lots of people try to achieve. Your lamps are much too small. You should get beautiful lamps with nice white shades, that would also make an impact. Good luck !

Side tables and a throw with a lilac tone.

Thank you for the wonderful suggestions. I know the lights are small and that is just one more reason this room is in need of a serious makeover. I had thought of a grey but my sister said not with my carpet. I had been considering grey with purple accent wall.

I think the purple color you have going for you already and the gold color in the rug will work very well with the colors of one of the color themes in the Color911 app. I created the app to help people with their color choices making decorating easy and fun. There are a lot of features in the app but one that I think would help you is the color themes that come in the app. The color themes are groups of colors already assembled for you that work well together. You can use any of the colors in the color theme for whatever you need, linens, paint,.. accent colors.. you name it, There are several colors themes that have your colors in it, but I attached this one to get you started. I hope this inspires you!

I would also suggest putting larger bedside lamps.....the current ones are much too small.
