PurplePurple is the colour of royalty, mystery and opulence, known as the colour that Cleopatra used to seduce Mark Antony. In deeper shades it can be passionate and sensual, particularly when teamed with shades of gold or silver. Softer shades, such as lavender and lilac, can have a calming effect when combined with white or cream. Tip: Purple is ‘that’ colour people have the strongest response to. Personal relationships to colour should always be taken into account first and foremost when choosing colours for your home.Finally, with so many colours, tints and shades to choose from, if you’d like to apply colour to your home and are still stuck on choosing the right shade to support your moods, feelings and behaviours, ask the advice of a professional colour consultant. Most have touched on applying colour psychology within their training and can guide you to ensure you choose the perfect shade for your space.Tell usHave you used any of these colours in your home?

The look: Regal glamourKey details: Old-world charm with a touch of monarchical luxury meets animal-patterned flamboyance. Why it works: This room’s styling is so sophisticated; the regal purple bedhead looks like it could appear in a bed owned by a romance novelist like Jackie Collins or by one of the Kardashians. The tufted fabric adds more grandeur, while the white piping accentuates the shape. To make this work, it’s important to go all the way with wild wallpaper, glitzy-gold metallic highlights and leopard-skin cushions.New twist: Try a more understated look by minimising the accessories in the room. Stick with subtle, white bedlinen and a neutral-coloured bedcover.
