Midday Muse: Laid-Back Lavender Walls

Lavender is one of those shades that I never think to use, but when I see it done well, the shade feels incredibly soothing. Case in point: This photo from the home of Brooklyn-based artist Lorena Barrezueta that was just featured on Design Sponge. Have you ever painted a wall lavender?

my bedroom walls are the same color, with green, gold and chocolate accents throughout. I also have a cheetah print chair in the corner to toughen it up a bit. I know this was posted months ago but I had to comment as I LOVE it. ♥

I painted my bathroom lavender. It's really calming, the color is called clove smoke. I love it!

The walls in this room are lavender. I love them. I had lavender walls when I was younger as well. When I get my house I'm painting the living room lavender with white trim and adding darker purple accents. I can't wait.

My mother painted my bedroom lavender when i was 13 but it turned out to be more of a blue colour :(

The lavender is very soothing and relaxing, I love it! I would paint my bedroom that color any day, but I think it might be a little too feminine for my fiancee. I love it though.

when I was younger my parents let me choose the colour of my bedroom walls (big mistake!). They ended up a dark lavender, and because my room doesn't have much natural light the whole room ended up *very* dark. I loved it at the time, but I'm very glad to have bright white walls now. Much more energy efficient as well - I don't have to have the lights on half as much!

I think it looks great! We opted for very bold accent colors in our home - but if I was a single woman I could see having a lavender room.

My room is lavender-my dad painted it while I was away on vacation- I hate it. Feels like a 5 yr olds room.

I love the antique-y look of it, and even though I'm not liking the blue, it appears to bring out the lavender even more.

Love the lavender and the dog, too cute not to mention.

All the lavender walls I've ever seen have looked quite lurid. . .maybe they just haven't been that *perfect* shade that can be so elusive in interior painting amongst certain colors (purple now included, I suppose!)

I love the lavender walls, and the color of the tan chair, but not the style. That blue thing has to go! It ruins the calm mood suggested by everything else!

My master bedroom is a lighter version of this lavender and I love it.

misslarue, what brand of paint/shade did you use? I want to paint a wall in my bedroom, and I really like this color...

I just can't do lavender. Of course most pastel and clear colors are way off my chart.

my home office is painted this color and i love it! it was tough to get the hubby to agree with it, but once it was done, he loved it too!

I really like that color, but I probably wouldn't use it in my apartment. I live with my fiance` and he would insist it was too girly.

In high school my room was lavender, and it was uber girly...I'd recommend doing an accent wall. If you're going to do all the walls, make sure the furniture and other focal points in the room have a masculine edge to avoid looking too frilly!
