JUNE | …..Colour of the month is Purple!! It is associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power and ambition. And it represents the meaning of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence and magic.
Purple is a bold, high vibrational colour, yet perplexing at the same time. Some consider purple too bold, different and challenging to pair with other combinations.
Purple seems “foreign” to some because it’s not as “naturally occurring” as green or blue. The truth is, purple-just like any other colour, can be easy to experiment with. When I think of purple, I think of it as unique, flirty, fun and sassy!
The key when decorating any interior room with purple is to keep it subtle and straightforward. You can select one piece of furniture in an elegant rich purple that becomes the room’s focal point. Or, if you choose to add a few elements of purple, select two different shades of purple that compliments the other rather than overpowering the textures and other décor pieces in the space.
Incorporating purple into your home can be easy with a few simple tips. Adding throw pillows to your chair/sofa can soften your space while displaying purple flowers, or a picture with a purple frame on your coffee table can be eye-catching. Hanging a large piece of artwork or funky wallpaper with a hint of purple becomes a statement piece in the room.
As we enter summertime and more outdoor entertaining, we are surrounded by many colours in nature and in the foods we eat. We decorate our plates with a variety of colourful foods; beautiful purple carrots, bright yellow and orange peppers, and rich leafy greens. When looking to compliment purple with an accent colour, you can use bright yellows, whites, silver and soften it with woods and golds similar to what you see in this fantastic food display.
When it comes to decorating, think outside of the box and don’t be afraid to try something new.
