The color purple combines the stimulation of red with the calm of blue. It can cause unrest or uneasiness but also represents bravery, royalty, and privilege. Deep or bright purples suggest riches while lighter purples are more romantic and delicate. Use redder purples for a warmer color scheme or the bluer purples to cool down. A deep eggplant purple with neutral tans or beige is an earthy, conservative color combination with a touch of the mystery that purple provides. Pink and purple has a very feminine appeal.
While purple is sophisticated and regal and romantic, it can also be playful and fun, as in the Artsy Craftsy youth bedroom from Schneiderman’s Furniture below.
