Purple is probably the most enigmatic of all colours as it combines the excitement of red with the tranquility of blue. It is often the preferred colour of artists, non-conformists, mystics, performers and designers. There is a certain spiritual quality to purple – perhaps something to do with it having the highest frequency of all colours.
Purple that has more red in it is usually called violet, and the more blue shades are called purple. A “purple patch” means a run of good luck or success.
Purple featured on the Versace summer collection for 2014, and while it looks great on the catwalk, it can look great in décor too.
Purple gives an air of grandeur and sophistication to a room. It creates an atmosphere of luxury, and mystery. One of the best partners for purple is green, as is often seen in nature.
