Purple is a combination of two primary colors on the color wheel: blue and red. This is unique because the two colors actually are opposites yet when mixed they blend into a beautiful radiant color that is actually considered artificial in nature, as it is very rare. Only a few flowers contain the color purple naturally.
The association to this color falls under the categories of: royalty, wisdom, mystery, magic, creativity, dignity, and independence. This spiritual color symbolizes: power, nobility, luxury, ambition, and conveys wealth. There’s no doubt this color is a powerful blend.
Purple uses the cooling attributes of blue and the energy of red to make itself a color that is always noticed. When worn, purple stands out the most compared to other colors, again, this could be related back to the fact that it was considered artificial.
Throughout history, nobles of the past and the wealthy wore purple robes and or clothed themselves and their beds with purple. Origination of the word to describe this color came from Tyrian purple or sometimes known as imperial purple. Which was derived from mollusc , an animal with no backbone and a shell that lived on the coast of Tyre located in ancient Phoenicia we know this as Lebanon today.

This bedroom brings purple to all different hues accented with darker browns. The plum suede walls behind the bed set the perfect backdrop for the lighter grey toned purple bed. The faux mink throw blanket adds to the fashion and wild side. Looking at the window drapes you can clearly see the illusion that the white stripe brings.
Changing it up the purple doesn’t stop here; this tailoring bathroom has modern sophistication that does the jive. The purple glass bowl stands on the vanity under the faucet. Shelves built into the bath tub storage for towels and more. Tiles of rich purple line the walls of the shower; a glass door opens the room and reflects the light. The fan that hangs is a smart touch, eliminating humidity and heat after the shower.
