Today's Colour story is by Pratt & Lambert, and starts the journey with Exploring Purple.
In the language of Colour Theory, Exploring Purple is a combination of pure hue, blue and red. Tints of white and Tones of black. The saturation level of this color is dark, bold, and deep. Enhancing a mood of exotic, richness, and royalty. That brings in the elements of Purple, being one of spirituality, creativity, passion, calming and a colour of rejuvenation.
In the otherwise who wears purple? I know its the colour of Royalty, making it the choice for Kings and Queens - but its also worn in the realms of Spiritual leaders, preachers - a colour strong in faith. But also in whimsy and magic, like the colour of wizardry (remember Micky in his purple and star robes!) and of course in Harry Potter and the hierarchy of Hogwarts! Purple has a Place.
So be INSPIRED.......... look at the purple in nature. From floral to the skies it surrounds us.
A posie of orchids and peacock feathers, fastened and put into lime green bottles, vases = stunning!
Delve into your creative side.......tap into your imagination and start to create a room of retreat in a bedroom, or a room of knowledge, library, or in a lounge - celebrating art, music and conversation. Here are a few items to Exploring Purple that I would use to create that Lounge.
The walls in the space would reflect exploring with maps, compass's, framed postage cards/stamps and vibrant art work.
Using these elements in a space I can visualize how it would be a creative, retreat - listening to music in the vintage record player. Having stacks of books on the cart, posies, and candles. The lighting would be unique too, playing on the golden tones, with a center drum and swag lights. Wood floor and a purple/blue area rug. Divine!
