Purple is royalty. A mysterious colour, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing colour. Deep or bright purples suggest riches while lighter purples are more romantic and delicate. Use redder purples for a warmer colour scheme or the bluer purples to cool down. A deep eggplant purple with neutral tans or beige is an earthy, conservative colour combination with a touch of the mystery that purple provides. Green and purple can be a striking combination in deep or bright jewel tones or use lighter shades for a cheerful, springlike feel. Pink and purple has feminine appeal.
