46 Sophisticated Mauve Home Decor Ideas
What Color Is Mauve?
Mauve is a pale purple color, similar to lavender and lilac but warmer. The name comes from French form of malva meaning the “mallow” flower. Mauve is thought to have a feel of moodiness and decadence but it’s also about feeling romantic, being idealistic and dreamy. It’s a beautiful and sophisticated shade that can be used for styling various spaces if you don’t want anything usual.

This color is ideal for those who want a soft touch of color but consider pastels boring. Mauve can be integrated in literally any interiors and styles, and it’s rather compatible: it can be used with black, white, grey, blues, greens and with purple or pink for creating monochromatic spaces. Mauve paired up with dusty pink or blush creates a very soft and subtle look. Such a color isn’t too often used in interior decor, it’s a fresh and very refined take on pastels, which will make your home very special if you go for it.

How To Integrate Mauve Into Interiors?
Mauve accent walls are great for all the spaces: living rooms, bedrooms, home offices, dining rooms and others. You may go for all the mauve walls for a romantic and a bit moody feel in the space. Mauve furniture can keep up the color scheme, you may go for mauve upholstery, and even if you don’t have such a piece, you can reupholster some seating furniture yourself. Mauve bedding, curtains, rugs and pillows will help you support the mauve accent wall if you aren’t going for furniture. Get inspired by the beautiful ideas below!
