4 Sweet Spaces That Will Inspire You To Work With Periwinkle

This dainty hue matches every style, too!


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. 

For those who aren't into Country and Shabby Chic-inspired decor, this versatile color works for classic styles, too. Take this dining area for example—it balances out its strong lines and dark-wood details with a wash of periwinkle on the walls. 

Who wouldn't want to go for a long soak in this relaxing T&B? When paired with a non-hue like white, periwinkle has the power to give any bathroom a bright and airy feel. Don't forget to add a vase or two of fresh blooms to keep it smelling extra fresh.
