Scroll down for a look at more deep purple bedding sets to get you from boring bedroom to blissful boudoir in no time!



Keeping Within Your Budget:
Dark Purple Comforter Set from Under $40


It's easy to get carried away with your planned budget when decorating ~ especially when we see that 'gotta have' piece we've been pining for. But be reminded that there's always a cheaper alternative and with the internet, finding a match is that much easier.
I've often recommended defining exactly what it is about that prized piece you love. Is it texture? Color? Style? these determining factors will aid in your quest for a look-alike. If you do find a bedding set that's 'non-negotiable' go ahead and get it but cut costs on the other pieces you decide upon. I've included this cheaper 3-piece comforter set for its striking deep purple hue, where you'll get the look for much less.


Deep/Dark Purple Bedding & Your Walls

Purple is such a striking, rich color that you'll need to delicately balance with lighter hues. I suggest you bathe walls in lighter tones like grey or taupe where the bedding will take center stage as it should.
Notice the walls in the model room images, here. If you're stuck with white walls, bedding like these purple and black sets will take the eye off the bland walls, making them an ideal candidate if you can't or don't want to paint.
Ideally, you want your bed to be the center of attention and keeping walls light will do the trick quite nicely.


Creating Balance in Your Space

Committing to a decor genre can seem a bit daunting when you're working within an intimate space like bedrooms. But striking a balance with my '3-to-1' formula will help keep designs in check so your results aren't dizzying ~ something you don't want in your boudoir.
We've all seen ghastly wallpaper where there appears to be an explosion of flowers or mad circles creating a cluttered, busy look. It's easy to have your design ideas take a runaway route, derailing all semblance of placid and posh ideas you had.
But don't let fear of bad results get in the way of enjoying your efforts; just use one themed piece to every three nondescript elements. Comforters like the one here make a great focal point, so you don't want too many pieces that have the same or similar appeal. Too many circular designs will dilute the effect of the boldness of your bedding. Instead, consider tossing several solid color accent pillows and window panels. The trick is to give your most important pieces the attention they deserve followed by other low-key pieces that support your color palette. This balance almost guarantees a great result.

Budget-Friendly Dark Purple and Black Zebra Print Comforter Set

While we have an idea of what dark or deep purple might look like, there's any number of purple hues to decide upon.
The bedding sets I've included here have distinct differences ~ despite sharing the "dark purple" features.
You've already decided on your decor genre, so finding the perfect purple is your next course off business. The purple and black zebra stripe bedding sets can support a modern or rustic theme, while the floral accents on the others make an ideal contribution to a shabby chic or traditional feminine look and feel. You might want to consider using accessories or wall art you already have on hand to make decorating easier and more cost effective but remember that doing so might restrict your choices for that 'gotta have' bedding set.
The deeper the purple, the more opulent and mystical. Purple has so many 'flavors' and there's no limit to the choices you have. Go as deep and dark as you're comfortable with and enjoy your new abode!

Wall Color to Complement Your Purple Bedding
You might want to consider a lavender or adding a hint of purple to a grey paint for warmth. Too, you might pull a color from the bedding (even if the color is part of a small design) and paint all or one accent wall with the chosen hue. Don't limit yourself too much; it's okay to experiment and if you don't like the results paint over it. Keep at it until you achieve your desired results; you'll be glad you did!



9-Piece Dark Purple Comforter Bedding Set with Accent Pillows

I grouped the bedding here to give a visual of how bedding responds to wall color, as it serves as your room's focal point. Beds are nearly always a bedroom's largest asset and going as large as your budget allows is always a good idea for making a great first impression as it ushers guests inside.
With purple of any shade, a nice light grey will support your bedding allowing it to take over the room's main decor element. As I mentioned, white is a good 'palette,' too. White acts as a blank canvas, ready for you to make magic with your space. With deep purples, keep to lighter hues for best results with that all-important contrast.

Decorating in Low Light Spaces

Dark Purple with Silver Comforter Set for Under $60

If we could add windows to darker spaces and eliminate those looming shadows that promise to dull our decorating efforts, it would be grand. But there are some remedies you can work in favor of banishing the blahs of dark spaces.
Using bedding sets like this one where the silver has reflective properties helps maintain hints of light. Mirrors are another option that's highly effective in creating the illusion of light and space. And keeping to lighter furniture finishes is a big plus, too. Check in on your bedroom throughout the day and note any shadows that need tending to. You might want to bathe walls in the lightest shade you can appreciate to keep your bedroom cozy and uplifting.

5-Piece Deep/Dark Purple Romantic Ruffle Comforter & Bedding Set


Yes, these are ruffles, ruffles and did I mention, ruffles? This deep purple comforter set is best described as 'romance bedding.' Whether or not, it's romantic is purely subjective. For bedrooms needing that special 'something' this dark purple bed set is spot on.

No, this purple comforter set isn't deep nor is it 'dark' and yes, I cheated with including this pinch pleat purple bed set. Why did I include it? I just love its texture and the warmth it adds to the space.
