Color Spotlight: Periwinkle

Periwinkle is a color in the blue and purple family. Its name is derived from the herb periwinkle. Periwinkle could also be considered a blue-ish lavender, or pastel blue. These 15 periwinkle home designs prove exactly why we love this color so much!

Periwinkle is a fun and soft color that brings happiness to any room you put it in. While it does have a purple tint, it is not a feminine color and is perfect for any bedroom.

Due to its soft nature, periwinkle is also perfect for bathrooms. It is a very calming color and is a good replacement if you want a soothing feel, but don’t want to choose the common plain nudes or mossy greens.

You can also incorporate this color just with accents such as bedding. Even a few small accents of periwinkle make a huge statement.

This color is excellent to use with anything regarding the outdoors, as purple and green are almost directly across from each other on the color wheel, and they look amazing placed next to each other.

For an interesting look, try painting your trim in periwinkle instead of the walls themselves. It’s a fun pop of color, and unique design.
