Purple is the color of royalty and richness. It’s warm and inviting but still very sophisticated and bold in design. It adds an amazing pop for the simplest of rooms but also bodes well in spaces that have lots of patterns and prints. It’s also a perfect shade to use all year round and we mean on your lamps. Take a seat and take a look at some of the most romantic, eclectic, modern, stylish and inspiring purple lamp shades to use this season.
What’s great about purple is how truly versatile it is. It holds up extremely well in a modern, contemporary and sleek-edged room, whether it’s a bedroom or an office. It stands its ground in a Victorian-styled space complete with gold finishes and delicate linens. And it looks just as great in a dorm room with a bunch of college necessities, like a mini fridge and bean bag chair.
I really love how artistic purples can be. Because of their cool, welcoming nature, it’s easy to incorporate them into a style that’s not necessarily pretty or “proper.” In a space with no rules, it blends and enhances a space that has a lot of design-worthy talent and artistic appeal.
Stand-up lights or even small little accents, purple fits well over the light bulbs. When the light is off the purple stands out and looks fabulous and then when the light shines through it becomes even more bold and empowering for the space. But don’t forget about the actual lamp. Any shade will meld with the purple top. A lavender shade with a black stand is a bit more contemporary, a pure purple shade with a gray foundation is a bit more eclectic and a deep eggplant with a ivory bottom is just what you’d need for a vintage-inspired spade.
The one that fits your personal style and theme for the room. Pure purple isn’t the most popular color in the traditional home decor world but there are so many amazing shades to choose from …. all the way to lilac to deep-rooted plum. If you’re scared of the lighter, brighter colors but still want something with drama and pizzazz, trust us, you won’t be going wrong with purple. Especially if you’re using it on your lampshade, which is just a tinge and pop instead of an entire room covered in the color!
