A 1960s color refreshes the idea of traditional patterns in lavender bedrooms.
What if the fabric color in any of these lavender bedrooms was changed to pale blue, or even light green? I’d think ‘predictable’ or at worse ‘yawn.’ Would you? Yet to my eye, some of the same old patterns we see again and again – large-scale checks, toiles, and plaid have a young and comfortable spirit in these lavender bedrooms. Updating Swedish-style bedroom color [top] really works and lavender marries well with the natural wood finish of the bed frame and side table in addition to the blue stool base.
Lavender toile wallpaper sounds horrible but look how cozy that pattern makes this bedroom! White-painted furniture, trellis detail on the base of the window seat and the draped canopy over the bed help strengthen the French spirit.
Plain curtains mixed with a checked pillow and throw brings a kiss of pale violet to an off-white bedroom. Switching out the bed covering offers a flexible approach in lavender bedrooms, adjusting to the seasons or switching up the look.
