Purple lends sophistication and class to the room and sets the perfect scene for the entire living space. It communicates class and confidence through independent expression. When shades of purple are more of red then blue the mood of the room sets more towards luxurious drama. Consider pairing rich purples with light browns to create the perfect pop effect.

The bedroom is anyways a place to wind down ones brain for the night, following the line of creativity and artful inspiration. This does not mean that you must not use purple at all in your bedrooms. Instead use tinches and hints of this colour can invite positive energy as per feng-shui principles.

Use deep purple to create a rather stunning front entry. Light lavender walls can add softness and royalty to a formal living room.
