Get the look: Add a regal touch to make the perfect home

Real royalty and fashion royalty alike adore the colour purple which is seen as both regal and on-trend season after season.

And the new Duchess of Cornwall has made purple reign again by wearing an eye-catching frock in this shade while in Canada recently.

Now it seems purple is the stylish shade for well-dressed homes this autumn.

But you don’t have to be on the civil list or command a supermodel’s salary to bedeck your pad in palatial purple.

There are any amount of luscious lamps and sumptuous throws in pretty purple available online or the high street — and they won’t cost a king’s ransom.

Store Twenty One ( has an impressive line up in this primary colour. Think cosy throws, from £19.99 with felt cushions, £9.99, or fur square cushions, £6.99. There is also a gorgeous genie lamp at just £19.99, which would light up any space, especially the boudoir.

Other brilliant bargains include a decorative purple vase, £22, for the living room and Macy rug, from £90, both from

Meanwhile, Betty Jackson.Black at Debenhams has some really beautiful bedding in purple, her Tuscany bedlinen which is priced from £40, with a standard pillow case £28. There is also a velvet-edge bedspread in the range, at £135. Team this set with a purple tall opaque vase, £30, or smoke band vase, £30, both from Debenhams.
