Color of the Month: King’s Court
by Quinn Larson
February’s nighttime sky features some of the most iconic constellations, invoking a sense of mystical, otherworldly wonder. It’s also the month of romance and a time of anticipation as long winter nights make way for longer springtime days and warmer weather. The royal purple in Behr’s King’s Court P560-7 perfectly captures February’s mystical, pensive nature, which is why we’ve selected it as the Color of the Month.
King’s Court adds a fresh, bold look to a living room. Paint one wall in this regal tone as a backdrop for a conversational grouping of furniture. Light, neutral-hued upholstery looks stunning in front of a gorgeously grape wall. Accent furniture with patterned throw pillows featuring light blues, turquoise, yellows and pinks. Platinum or mirrored silver tables also look lovely in this luscious space.
A single wall painted purple works surprisingly well in a dining room, tying together an eclectic assortment of furnishings. Paint the other walls a warm gray to balance cool and warm hues. Wood furniture takes center stage in this regal, refreshing space, whether it’s Mid-Century Modern, Danish or a party mix of several styles. Add a playfully patterned area rug, several accent pieces that play off the rug’s colors, plus a few white pieces for a crisp touch.
If purple all around seems too intense, use King’s Court to refresh a flea-market find, such as a Chinese cabinet or even a bookcase. Add accents in white and silver. Crystals also look stunning when displayed atop a royal purple stand.
King’s Court is right at home on bedroom walls, too. Paint all the walls — or just the one behind the bed — in King’s Court to invoke a mystical, dreamlike mood, perfect for a good night’s sleep. White or light gray bedding, paired with throw pillows in two-tone patterns, makes the space feel rich and inviting without being too “busy” for sleep.
King’s Court is also a wonderful choice for a teen or tween’s bedroom. A swath of rich purple on a wall and even the ceiling adds visual interest to a white room. It’s also right at home with other accent hues a child would love, such as bubblegum pink and optic orange.
