Say it with colour: Purple

It’s Good Friday today, so the end of Lent is coming soon (I can’t wait to eat chocolate again).

Purple colour

The colour frequently associated with this time of year is PURPLE. It can be associated with mourning, but also with royalty (the crucifixion but also Christ’s resurrection).

The colour purple stimulates our imagination and enhances our spirituality. It can be as strong and full of energy as red, but it also benefits from serenity of blue.

The meaning of purple most often refers to nobility, abundance, dignity but also fantasy. Too much of the colour purple can promote or aggravate depression in some, so use it with care.

Purple collage

1. The colour purple can create an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance. This room has been designed by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard for Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s Los Angeles home.

2. This room is super romantic, magical and mysterious. I’m ready for daydreaming now…

3. The combination of blue and purple/violet works well in this eclectic and full of character room.

Do you like purple? Which colours does purple look good with?
