Purple - Mood & Messages

Purple Bathroom

Mysterious and likeable, purples blend the sizzle of reds with the serenity of blues.  Purples are the most complex colours in the spectrum and suggest very different emotions depending upon shade.

The most expensive colours to produce, purples were long reserved for the uppermost echelons of society.  Deep purples continue to evoke wealth, royalty and extravagance.  Use them as accent colours to add old-time glamour to your spaces.

Lighter purples, including lavenders, suggest nostalgia and romantic ideals.  They may be used as dominant colours in the bedroom to encourage sleep and rest.  Lighter purples also encourage daydreaming and should be used sparingly in home offices.

 

Tips

  • Use purples to add a slight air of mystery to any space
