Although the pastel purple shade of lavender may instantly bring summertime gardens to mind, this cool hue is actually a gorgeous shade for the chilly months of the year. For decorating enthusiasts who wish to embrace lavender this season, here are a few stylish ways to bring the colour into your home now.

Refresh your living room with varying shades of lavender: From dark lavender to ethereal, barely there hues, light purple décor can truly transform an average living room into the ultimate welcoming space. In order to rock the shade at home, use darker lavender linens and pale lavender pillows to bring your living room to life. Meanwhile, glossy brown hardwood floors, a grey textured area rug and sprigs of lavender in a vase complete the look.

Accessorize your space with a lavender loveseat: If your bedroom is craving a dose of colour, turn to lavender shades for your loveseat. A two-seater in an inviting light purple hue helps to bring a refined touch to your chamber. Add violet and lilac patterned carpeting, plush statement cushions and a light lavender throw blanket for the ultimate in chic.

Paint your bathroom shelves lavender for a burst of colour. While pristine ivory and cream hues may have become a trademark at home, bathroom shelving can certainly benefit from a pop of colour. Try accenting your cabinets and shelves with a coat of light lavender paint, and add in gold hardware for a contrasting effect. Ornate golden mirrors, gold-painted faucets and gleaming countertops help to create the sophisticated bathroom of your dreams.
