Color Confidence – How to Decorate With Purple

When it comes to color, it seems that there are varying opinions, but when it comes to your living room decor, you want to have colors that you love in it.

So, for example, if you love the color purple, then you might want to have an entirely purple room, but your significant other might not be a huge fan of purple.  So is there a way to compromise?  You bet!

For example, rather than having purple walls or purple curtains, you could have a purple couch and use that as the center piece for the room.  Of course, there are also varying shades of purple – from lavender to the deep purples of berries, there are so many to choose from.  If you have a particular shade in mind, then that makes things a little easier.

Of course, you will also want to know what colors go well with purple when it comes to living spaces.  You might try a complementary color scheme, which means that you could pick a color from the other side of the color wheel.

Our team of experienced designers can always help you figure out what will go best with the shade of purple you’d like to target.  The lighting in the room as well as the purpose of the room will play a big part of it as well.  We’ve got many purple furniture pieces in stock that you can see in person in one of our 23 stores or you can browse our website for ideas.

Be sure to check out this week’s sales and coupons as well – so that you can spend what you’ve saved on purple flowers for your new space!

Have you decorated with purple like with accent chairs for living room and loved how it turned out?  We would love it if you would share a photo of your purple space with us on our Facebook page!


Best Living Room Collection for a Small Apartment

3 Piece Living Room SetWhether you have just moved into a small apartment or if you have always had one, one of the challenges of living in a small place is getting the furniture right so that it doesn’t feel small.

As you may be familiar, one of the best ways to figure out how furniture will fit is to measure the space where you are going to put furniture.  While measuring it, you’ll want to mark down on a piece of paper to be able to remember the measurements.  You might even make a diagram of the area and mark what the height, width and lengths are in those areas.

Then you need to determine what you want – do you want a chair and a couch or a loveseat?  Do you want a coffee table?  Will all those pieces fit? 

For example, you might find that a sectional might be a better fit than having a couch and a love seat.  Or you might have a space where you couldn’t fit two individual couches, but yours could definitely fit a sectional, which then provides for more lounge area.

The RoomPlace can help you figure out what furniture would work best in your small apartment.  In fact, our showrooms feature completely furnished and coordinated rooms to help give you an idea of what direction to head in.  You can also save more when you buy a complete room from us – feel free to stop into one of our 23 locations or shop online and enjoy immediate delivery so that you can start living in your living room!
