Purple Luxe

Thursday, 3 September 2015
From the palest of lavenders to the darkest of plum tones, the hues of the colour purple are as wide as its appeal. In ancient times, purple dyes were extracted from molluscs and therefore incredibly expensive and afforded only by the noble classes. Today deep and rich versions of the colour still signal luxury, while softer shades are soothing and relaxing. Purple shades can add passion to a room, and for a pulled-together look, repeat the purple elsewhere in the room. This makes the overall statement thoughtfully eclectic, rather than just eccentric. The deepest purples, like aubergines and brooding dark iris shades, imply grandeur and strike a serious note. These statement tones are best used boldly when decorating a bedroom. Here is a selection of purple hued bed linen designs now available from the Cottonbox website! KSstudio_Wren
