The color Purple happens to affect us mentally and physically. It's
* Calming to mind and nerves
* Offers a sense of spirituality
* Encourages creativity
It happens to be my favorite color (for the time being) and I think its just such a fun, but gutsy color to work with. It's not usually preferred, but I think if you do it right, purple can be a very rich yet calming hue to use for your home.The fun part is it can either be very bold and daring or very feminine. If you use a deep purple, like a plum you will have a very bold, royal and dramatic room, but if you use lighter tones such as lavender, it will give off a very feminine and soft mood.
