The Color Purple

The color purple represents a variation of shades between red and blue, whether pale lavender, deep purple, violet, or lilac.

Purple has varying symbolic significance to people. Some relate the color to suffering, while others embrace it. How you interpret purple depends on your own experiences and the cultural association with the color. Often, purple is considered the color of royalty and nobility, and it can also bear religious significance.

In recent years, we’ve seen more purple in fashion and design. Personally, I haven’t always been a big fan of purple- I used to associate it only with young girl’s rooms. Over time, I’ve grown to appreciate this color, especially in the lighter shades of lavender- so beautiful when it’s mixed with green, white and blue.

What are your associations with the color purple?
