When it comes to styling spaces, a lot of homeowners are hesitant to work with shades of amaranthine. Whether it's a rich purple or a regal amethyst, people avoid it in fear of oversaturating their home. However, if you are determined to work with a variation of violet, you can always go for a color that has a little bit of blue mixed in it—perwinkle. To inspire you take the plunge into working with this bright but subdued hue, check out these pegs:
If you're looking into creating a soothing space for slumber, periwinkle is a surefire winner—the cool undertones of this color can calm the senses after long day at work. You can also add a few royal blue accessories to keep the room from falling flat.
Greet your guests with a warm welcome and a vibrant entrance that they surely won't miss! Consider painting your front door in this one-of-a-kind hue to give your home a personality boost without having to do much else.
