Color of the Week - Purple

Purple is a very spiritual color I cant really picture having to much of it, it has very calming and soothing effect it cant be overused. Obviously there are different shades and tints of purple from deep rich violet to calming lavender. Purple is a very safe choice for the first time decorators it can suit many interiors and personalities, it's a favourite color of many people. To me, purple is royal and very mysterious color. If this is your favourite color it means you are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself - you are the person others come to for help - being needed motivates you but sometimes people take advantage of you.

Purple is also the most powerful wavelength of the rainbow – and it’s a color with a powerful history that has evolved over time.

Interesting facts:
Purple tends to be a color that people either love or hate.
Among Mediterranean people, purple was reserved for emperors and popes. The Japanese christened it “Imperial Purple”

Unique Meanings of Purple in Different Cultures:
The “Purple Heart” is the American award for bravery.
Purple is a symbolic color for the gay community in many Western cultures.
Purple is the color of popular children's television characters – "Barney" and "Tinky Winky" (the purple Teletubby from the BBC).
In Italy most performing artists would not go on stage if they have to wear anything purple.
