Purple, beautiful brilliant purple. The perfect blend of calming blue and the fierce energy of red will get you so many different hues. I'm always amazed, every time I mix the two colors how I can achieve a new shade of purple. 

The color purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence and magic.

-- that's a lot for this color to live up too!

Let's just dive right into purple and take a big scoop! (Cheesy pun intended)

I think there are many ways we can use purple. It really just depends on the level of intensity (and how much you want to commit) to the bold hue. 

It can say "purple" without jumping at you purple...

Or it can say "HEY! And I'm here to liven up your space!"

Either way you choose to speak the purple color language, is fine, neither is wrong. Its your personal style that counts!

For this specific project, we chose a nice warm eggplant for the walls of this media room, I loved it paired with bright modern colors! (Check out more of this project here)

When we were at  Market, last fall, we saw a lot of purple hues happening. Here is a collection of a few of our favorite things that got our wheels turning. Everything from boxes blinged out with gems, to art, to furniture and whole spaces.

And, well, you know me. I always feel that interior design and fashion intersect...

Some of my favorite purple shoes... and they are velvet. What's not to love?!

So how do you feel about purple? What are some of your favorite pairings for the color? Do tell!
