We're calling it — purple is poised to make a major comeback. Last summer, we predicted the rise of the hue based on Sherwin-Williams' 2019 color forecast, and now we're divulging the paint colors that you should seriously consider for a bathroom. That's right. We're making the case to prove that you should consider giving your washroom a violet makeover. Scroll on to discover a range of eight shades spanning pastel-perfect lilacs to deep, moody aubergines all perfectly suited for creating a show-stopping purple bathroom.
1. For a Barely There Look
2. For a Pretty Pastel
3. For a Calming Space
4. For a Bright Punch
Weaving neutral hues with bright colors is going to be all the rage in 2019 — and we might have Kylie Jenner's Los Angeles abode to thank for that. To create a striking purple bathroom to call your own, opt for this light, bright shade which pairs well with neutrals.
5. For a Bold Look
6. For a Sophisticated Almost-Gray Shade
Named after the group of plants that includes purple sprouting broccoli, Farrow & Ball's Brassica is ideal for lifting colder rooms and adding a hint of sophistication to a space. The rich lavender tone is feminine and prepossessing in areas with lots of natural light, but becomes much more intricate and gray in darker areas thanks to an underlying hint of black. The result: a perfect shade for a purple bathroom.
7. For a Classic Approach
Purpleheart is inspired by the classic shade used by an overwhelming number of homeowners in the 1970s for everything from walls to ceilings. The rich, royal hue is an unexpected choice nowadays and we think it would look great in a large bathroom. Plus, we can't look at it without spontaneously bursting into a rendition of Prince's 1984 classic Purple Rain. (Just us?)
8. For a Moody Vibe
Dark and quietly seductive, Valspar's Twilight Purple represents the hue in all the right ways. The deep violet-black will add a luxurious atmosphere to your purple bathroom, as well as create a dramatic and moody setting — perfect for meditation and mindfulness in an age of self-care.
