Top Tips on Using Colour in Your Home – Purple
The Power of Purple
Purple is traditionally associated with powerful positions. It is the colour of royalty and cardinals. It is also associated with spirituality, if you have purple in your aura you are thought to have spiritual depth or even psychic ability. Dark purple, such as aubergine, is rich, dramatic, and sophisticated. It is associated with luxury as well as creativity, and as an accent or secondary colour, it gives a scheme depth. Lighter versions of purple, such as lavender and lilac, bring the same restful quality to bedrooms as blue does, but without the risk of feeling chilly.
Funnily enough the smell of lavender is also supposed to help you sleep so why not add a bowl of lavender potpourri to your bedside table?
