Don’t forget fuchsia as one of the options on your purple checklist. Go full-on Magic Carpet in high gloss, and watch light bounce off the walls, creating a dramatic mirrored effect. Keep furniture complementary, streamlined, and simple so the color is the star.

Shop PPG Gooseberry

If your taste runs to a more subtle line of the royal hue, go for a dark, shaded, raspberry chocolate purple wall like Gooseberry and augment it with equally deep and velvety furnishings. In the same color family, these two shades will create a sense of peace and harmony in your bathroom.
