In Love with Purple!

Recently I've been loving the color plum. I waited patiently to find plum curtains for our bedroom. Our bedroom walls are a light gray with black furniture and I thought purple would accomplish the luxe feeling I had wanted. The furniture is from Mealy's. We only bought the bed and wide dresser. I'm not a huge fan of all matching furniture in 1 room. We bought white shades from JC Penney- a great store to find a selection of blinds and curtains at affordable prices. The purple curtains are from Bed, Bath, & Beyond, as well as the black curtain rods. The curtains are Insola and are only in stores. They are also room-darkening, which was a MUST for my husband & I! They ensure a good night's sleep! I bought purple candles from IKEA and the silver pillars from Homegoods. The 3 pillars cost a total of $22. The TV already had the cable hookup on the wall so we really placed the furniture in the room around the TV! The room is almost finished. I love the idea of a feature wall and am thinking of adding a calming wallpaper pattern to the headboard wall within the purple/gray color scheme. Once this wall is complete I will add the black lack IKEA small shelves to use as our side tables instead of traditional bedside tables. At $10 each you can't beat $40 for the cost of 2 side tables! Plus, they add to the contemporary/modern style I prefer. I will post additional pictures once the room is completed.
