Colour Psychology - Purple

I have currently been working on a new project for an award winning beauty salon in Suffolk, which has inspired this months colour psychology post. Purple!

Purple is strongly associated with royalty and wealth, symbolising extravagence and richness making it a perfect choice for clients looking for glamour, luxury and sophistication.

Grey and taupe shades compliment this colour beautifully and enhance that feeling of glamour and luxury and the darker the shades the more sultry and mysterious.

Because purple is a symbolic color in religions across many cultures and eras it is also known to portray feelings of spirituality, serenity and thoughtfulness, perfect for bedrooms!

Tip: To avoid overpowering a room with purple, use it as an accent colour.

Wishing you all a happy Monday. x

  1. I am so glad you have written about purple, I have seen a lot of purple lately in home decor and weddings, so excited to see your post.

  2. Thank you :-)
    Purple has been one of the major trends in interior design and fashion which is why you will have seen it everywhere inc weddings but with a new season we will start to see new trends coming out to play, it is a beautiful colour. x

  3. Fantastic post. Purple is my favourite colour, which is apparently weird for a guy. I want that purple chair!

  4. Thank you Scott, I think purple is heavily associated with teenage girls and lilac bedrooms but hopefully this post will help people see the potential and beauty of purple and stop those misconceptions!
