Based on Wikipedia, periwinkle is understood to be a colour in the”blue-violet” family. It’s also referred to as”lavender blue,” and considered a”pale tint of indigo.” I really don’t know about you, but I feel as this respect manages to elicit all kinds of interpretations of the popular colour. And, from conversations with friends, who’ve pointed to what from gray-blue colors to daring lavenders in determination to detect periwinkle, I will tell you for true that it does. For the sake of argument, let’s explore the use of several puzzle colors that fall in the difference between blue and purple — if you see them as periwinkle or not, I guarantee you will still find the colour fun, inspirational and a great addition for your décor!

To me, that is quintessential periwinkle, maybe with a hint more lavender. I really like the interaction between the playful colour as well as the brown tones in the bed and the pure wood ceiling, in addition to the stone fireplace. Neutral walls could have been clean and crisp, but the cool tone of periwinkle adds instant sophistication.

Wainscoting is a great architectural detail that can be readily emphasized. A great solution is painting the wall a contrasting colour to that of the wainscoting, similar to this periwinkle against green. Painting the molding a slightly darker colour provides a great punctuation to the detailing.

Want a way to brighten a cellar space? Throw a dash of periwinkle onto the walls! This colour is another close hit to the way I perceive periwinkle, particularly when you can see it against the deep purple of the chair cushions.
And here is where we start to deviate: This edition of periwinkle definitely includes more grim. I adore its use here. At any time you want to actually envelop a space in a color, hit up the ceiling. Additionally, this warm yellowish shade is a great complement to the periwinkle.
Back to a lavender-y periwinkle. Mixing several shades of purple to the room makes the space feel richer and, in effect, highlights the periwinkle. This also proves that you don’t need to feel trapped in the joys of placing the normal seat or chest at the end of the mattress: Attempt a vibrant ottoman with an interesting design to spice up the space!

Gray-tone alert! This periwinkle is barely holding on to its status, but we’ll sneak it in here anyway. This room feels almost princess-like: it’s so tender, and the snowy mattress against white drapes and that incredible window almost appears to fall away into the décor.

Bathrooms can really be a opportunity to play with colour without as much commitment, because they are usually a smaller space. This periwinkle is indeed clear against the white and gives the effect of a very clean bathroom. If you can find tricks to make your bathroom look as clean as possible, then by all means make the most!
Ok, this colour as periwinkle might be a stretch all conditions, but I only had to throw it . Though definitely more gray-blue and apparently without much purple in any way, look how this color makes that pink door POP! This is a front door that your guests are not likely to overlook!

And we’re back to a purple-infused periwinkle, painted onto the wall with a great texture application that produces the gold glow. Very trendy tree detail added to the wall: This makes this spectacle feel almost fairy-tale! I’d like to throw a few candlelight in here and receive completely lost in the air.
Introducing periwinkle since the pop of colour every kitchen never knew it needed! I really like that the designer opted to paint the base of the seating area and island in this yummy color. It adds a little zest to the space and actually sets off the richness of the wood flooring.
By painting the inside of the porch a more blue-hued periwinkle, the distance both mimics the sky and adds some personality. Additionally, it picks up the exact same periwinkle shade found in the floral pattern onto the furniture.

If you’d like your periwinkle to actually pop, blend it in with a few coral. The combo is playful and daring, and with a green backdrop and a few gold touches as noticed on these shelves, the appearance is actually maximized!

Sometimes less really is , and this bath proves it. This color makes the space ; the white countertop appears fresh and modern, and the patterned sink bowl brings the colors to the furnishings. What greater than a couple of yellow tulips for a fragrant pop of colour?

I am not much of a gardener, but an cute periwinkle seat like this one will surely make me stop and smell the flowers. With a few of those chilled refreshments, I might stay awhile.
