#PaintTipTuesday [014] The Meaning of Colors

Featuring our last #PaintTipTuesday of the month of March, we’ll leave our readers with a touch of purple — the color of royalty, luxury, wealth, and sophistication. Purple can also relate to romanance and as well as femininity.

Meaning: “Purple in its darkest values (eggplant, for example) is rich, dramatic, and sophisticated. It is associated with luxury as well as creativity, and as an accent or secondary color, 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.” –Freshome.com

Where to use it: As there are so many variations of purple (as there is of every color!), each shade can depict a different tone and mood. So choosing where what shade to paint where can be totally dependent on personality. A pop of the color purple can go well in any room. Those looking for a more bold statement should stick with deeper purples while those looking for a light and whimsicle feel can seek out a lighter shade of the color.

We’ve chosen some of our favorites, but click each photo to check out our entire album dedicated to purple on Pinterest.
