The color purple stands for royalty. Purple is a mysterious color that is associated with nobility and spirituality. Deep red and cool blue combine to create the intriguing color of purple. Choosing purple bedding for your bedroom gives your entire room a feeling of reassurance and calm.
Your bedroom is your very own restful retreat and it should be filled with comfort and calm where everything is exactly as you wish it to be. Beautiful bedding, soft, downy pillows and crisp fresh linens make for total relaxation as well as long and peaceful nights full of pleasant dreams.
If you wish to go with the color purple for your bedroom, you will have a great many shades of this great color to choose from. You can find many designs ranging from flowers and floral patterns as well as retro and modern artwork, just to name a few.
Purple is a very popular color among young girls, teenagers as well as many adults. When choosing the bedding, be sure to look for high quality bedding. The easiest way to do this is to check the thread count on the bedding packages. The thread count refers to the number of vertical and horizontal threads that are in a one inch square of the fabric. When the manufacturer of the purple bedding uses fine threads, then naturally more threads will fit into a square inch. These finer threads also give a smoother and softer feel to the fabric. Although there is a lot of confusion regarding thread count these days, the general rule here is that the higher the thread count, the better the bedding is.
While thread count is important, just exactly how the cotton is woven and treated can also affect the overall feel of the bedding as can the final finishing of the fabric. A good general rule that you should keep in mind when selecting your purple bedding is that a thread count above 180 is considered good and anything above 250 is consider ideal.
With purple bedding as your choice, you can purchase a complete set including a comforter, duvet or bedspread along with sheets, pillow cases and bedskirt–all in different shades of purple for a wonderful, inviting and modern look. With a couple of contrasting throw pillows and blankets thrown in, you will have created a room so relaxing and great looking that you may find yourself spending more than just sleep time in your bedroom!
You can add to the ambiance of your bedroom and color choice by finding great looking bedroom accessories such as lamps and art work that complement the color purple and which will tie the entire look of the room together.
When decorating in purple, try to choose either neutrals or complementary colors, such as yellow. Purple walls, in addition to purple bedroom decor, can be overwhelming. Instead, try breaking up the purple hues in your decor. Use purple decor to complement and accent and you will find that purple, while subtle, creates a feeling of luxury and warmth.
Today you can find a wide variety of purple bedding on the internet and this is where you will undoubtedly find the best prices as well. Sets, such as comforter sets or duvet cover sets, are priced less than if you buy each item separately. Let your imagination run wild and take the time to look through all of the purple bedding options available to you. Remember that we spend a third of our lives asleep, so you want to be sure to take the time to select bedding that you find both appealing and comforting.
