This farmhouse dining room uses plum in several different textures. Velvet is combined with other fabrics like cotton and silk to provide visual interest that gives the solid patterns more depth.  Another statement feature we can’t help but drool over is the faux chandeliers made from wine glasses. Such an innovative way to make storage double as decor!

This decadent bedroom designed by RSVP Design Services brings out the regal facet of plums. The color has been combined with a distressed mirrored wall, which can be recreated with a trompe l’oeil wallpaper, and lavender silks that have a shimmering sheen to them.

If your space or current décor is industrial, deep purples can soften the harshness of clean rigid lines, concrete and white walls. The dark wallpaper on the accent wall creates the illusion of a larger space because deeper colors appear to recede when placed next to lighter hues.
