Purple is the perfect median between both main hues — less competitive than red but more lively than blue. Really, author Brad Thor summed this up nicely when he explained, “From the political angle, so I am trying to become apolitical if you will. I mean people say, ‘Are you a red state or blue state?’ I say I am purple.”
However, purple does not sit on the fence. This color makes bold statement and is often selected to aid a room or feature stand out. It is connected with royalty, spirituality and wisdom and is said to uplift and to promote pure idea. Too much could be tempestuous and overpowering, but it may be beautiful once the balance is right.

The color worn by Roman emperors and then later Roman Catholic bishops, purple remains associated with royalty and piety. It is great for statement bits and, in velvet, makes these chairs much more extravagant and royal.

Purple’s title and color include a Tyrian dye, purpura from Latin, made in the mucus of a Mediterranean sea snail. The dye was so costly, only kings could afford it.
Perhaps its origins make it a good choice for Mediterranean-inspired layout, in which a blue rather than red tint (as in the photo shown) looks perfect.
Vincent van Gogh was an avid student of color theory and utilized violet in a number of his 1880s paintings, including those of irises and moody skies. In his famous painting “Starry Night,” he utilized violet with complementary yellowish — this makes for a similarly dramatic pairing in space layout.
Leonardo da Vinci believed that the energy of meditation increased by 10 under purple lighting, and in his case, this light came in the stained glass at the sanctuaries he was functioning in.

In metaphysics the expression “purple power” describes psychic abilities. Because purple has the maximum frequency in the visible spectrum, mystics associate it with the maximum degree of religious intuition. Used here as mild, purple does appear to put in a mystical aura.

They like the uniqueness inherent in this shade that is extraordinary.”

Early studies of color suggested a preference for purple revealed psychological and mental immaturity, but further research failed to prove this. I would rather believe that it demonstrates creativity and playfulness. This room reveals, playfully, just how great purple may look with other strong colours, such as green and turquoise.

In feng shui purple isn’t recommended for use as a wall color or in large amounts. “it is a very high-vibration color and should be used sparingly,” says feng shui expert Rodika Tchi. She states that the only space where it may be utilised in large amounts is a meditation or therapeutic place; otherwise keep with the paler shades, like lavender.
