Mmm… today’s Color Inspiration is inspired by winter with shades of charcoal, fuchsia and violet… isn’t it a gorgeous color palette?!
It’s funny to me how some people are totally purple-people… they LOVE purple; can’t get enough of it. Then there are those who just aren’t crazy about purple at all (dare I say they even *hate* it?). Just fascinating to me.
What do you think of violet/purple? Are you a “purple person?”
Here are a few fun things I found when researching the symbolism and meaning of the color purple/violet :
Symbolizes royalty; color of the crown chakra. Encourages fantasy, mystery and imagination. Violet is a combination of blue and red. Red is a focusing, dynamic and active energy while blue is cooling, calming and expansive. Violet brings a new dynamic to the expansion of blue and the activity of red. Red brings practicality to the undirected expansiveness of the blue, and allows more creative energy to emerge. For this reason, violet is associated with imagination and inspiration.
Put some violet in your life when you want:
Purple embodies the balance of red’s stimulation and blue’s calm. This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone is clearly defined, at which point the purple takes on the characteristics of its undertone. With a sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite color of adolescent girls.
My Color inspiration posts are to:
