Looking for a soothing and restorative shade for your interior? Dulux Lavender Quartz ticks all the boxes, and it’s perfect for bedrooms through to living spaces.
Purple and lilac shades are in, and big time. This once seemingly old and forgotten colour has seen a huge resurgence throughout interiors, this soft and pared back shade works with neutrals, purples and more defining shades such as navy blue for a really definitive and mature look.
Join us as we explore some stunning colour combinations that will perfectly complement this soothing and elegant hue, and help you create a cohesive and stylish look in your home with Dulux Lavender Quartz.
What Colour Is Dulux Lavender Quartz?
Dulux Lavender Quartz is described as a soft and soothing light purple colour, it’s slightly darker than a pale, lilac colour. It’s perfect for bedrooms, living rooms and beyond that could benefit from a calming and restorative shade.
The colour may vary slightly depending on the lighting and the surface on which it is applied so always purchase a tester pot first and paint a swatch in your chosen room so you can see how it feels and looks in the room during different times of the day.
What Colours Go With Dulux Lavender Quartz?
When choosing the best colours to pair with Lavender Quartz it’s always best to first look at the paints undertones to see which colours naturally align.
It’s very easy to go wrong with purple, so tonal combinations can be a great starting point. Dulux Lavender Quartz has soft blue and purple undertones, and Dulux recommend pairing with a gorgeous coastal, soft blue shade – Blue Lagoon and Gentle Lavender, a softer more lilac purple shade.
If you choose Lavender Quartz for your walls, why not layer with differing shades of lilac and blue for texture, depth and a really cohesive scheme.
Lavender Quartz is a beautifully soft and laidback shade so it pairs perfectly with other neutrals. Introduce a shade such as Natural Slate for a bit of definition in a room, or Frosted Steel, a soft pale grey shade.
Grey is a great colour to pair with this purple Dulux paint shade as it helps to warm up what can otherwise feel like a cold colour in a room.
Designer’s Choice Combinations
Dulux always throw in a few wild card colour combinations for a stand out look, and perhaps it’s one of the most on-trend colour combinations right now – yellow and purple.
There’s something really soft and sweet, yet mature about this pairing of colours. Introduce a soft, caramel shade such as Celtic Cream for a really soft combo, or inject a touch of colour with Honey Mustard, a gorgeous mustard shade which will bring depth, and a touch of masculinity to your interior.
Lavender Quartz & Navy Blue
These two colours can make a striking combination for an interior space. The softness of the lavender and the richness of the navy blue complement each other beautifully, creating a sophisticated and calming ambience.
To make the most of this combination, you could use Lavender Quartz as the dominant colour and incorporate navy blue as an accent colour. For example, you could paint the walls in this soft lavender shade and add navy blue curtains, throws, cushions, or a rug for added definition in the room.
Lavender Quartz & Black
If you’re creating a modern looking interior decor scheme, incorporating black is a perfect choice. A black accent is a defining characteristic of modern design, and it provides a defining and grounding accent against Lavender Quartz, perfect if you want something a little more defining than Navy Blue.
Black should be used sparingly with interior hardware details such as door handles, small pieces of furniture like console tables or side tables, and as an accent on decor accessories such as prints.
Lavender Quartz & Sage Green
Lavender Quartz is a soft and pared back shade, it pairs beautifully with most green shades, but combining with a sage green brings a more restorative and relaxing balance to a room.
Choose one as the dominant colour in the room and introduce the other as an accent colour. If you’re styling a bedroom, use differing colours of sage green on cushions and throws for sumptuous comfort and texture.
Lavender Quartz & White
An off-white is a great pairing for Lavender Quartz, especially a Dulux shade such as Cornflower White. However, if you want to really lift things and provide a stark contrast, bright white is a great choice.
If you’re using Dulux Lavender Quartz on the walls, lift the room by painting the ceiling and skirtings with a bright white paint. The contrast from the walls to the ceiling will draw the eye up as you enter the room, helping the room to feel larger than it actually is.
Lavender Quartz & Yellow
As I’ve already touched on, lilac and yellow are the new pink and grey combo.
This sweet colour combination is not just for the older generation, it can look exceptional in an interior design scheme with the right styling.
Make careful considerations about how you introduce yellow, we’re not talking about luminous yellow but a pared back, pastel shade that brings a touch of softness to a room.
Introduce yellow into a room scheme with cushions, throws and on decor accessories such as prints. I am loving gingham yellow cushions right now, and it’s a soft, and fun way to appreciate this colour combo.
