  1. purple room colour

    It is fair to say that lilac fell out of favour for a time but it is definitely making a comeback. This time around it feels more sophisticated and less overpowering, creating a perfect backdrop for home walls. Lilac is a soft purple shade that is often confused with lavender. While both colours are shades of purple, lilac has a pink tint to it whereas lavender has a blue tint. Lilac takes its name from the colour of lilac flowers and was used as a symbol of wealth and power in the 16th century.

  2. pruple mosiac

    Speaking of purple, another hue that is just as mesmerising as lilac is amethyst colour. With vivid hues ranging from lilac to lavender to dark purple, the spectrum of this bright jewel is inspiring. If you’re looking for a jewel-inspired colour for your home walls, get in on the amethyst decor trend that combines wellness with design. Lavish, passionate and luxurious, hues of amethyst have a touch of elegance and infuse the space with all the rich qualities. It is a wonderful colour for the bedroom to ease the mind and create feelings of serenity.

  3. flag

    There are great varieties of colours and designs when it comes to the national flags of countries and territories. Red, yellow, green and orange are some common flag colours. But purple is one of the rarest colours to be seen on a national flag. This is surprising because purple is a colour of royalty and authority and you might expect it to be a common flag colour because of these qualities. However, only two national flags have the colour purple on them, Nicaragua and Dominica. There is one convincing theory behind this. Until recently, purple dye was too expensive to use and very rare colour and most companies simply could not afford to use it on their flags. Only the rich could afford to adorn purple, hence it became the symbol of opulence.
