Fashion meets Decor in Shades of Purple

No matter how you use purple in your wardrobe or in your house..when you do so,  you use it make ready to make a statement.

Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. 


"I'm in the mood for this kind of happy, soothing color. It's the palest of the pale lavenders — a petally color, a flower color. I think it's very pure and fresh. I'd use it in a bedroom, where you could mix it up with everything from mirrored furniture to pale wood furniture to dark mahogany." -Laura Bohn Pittsburgh Paints in Orchid Petal  


Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

Purple makes for the perfect accessory for your outfit or for your bedroom.
It's the color of a spring crocus. Bold, but not too sweet. 

Love this intense deep violet pink. I'm dying to use it, but it definitely requires someone who's willing to take a risk. 

Now, if you want to make a statement either by walking in a party or for the perfect dinning room, dark purple is the way to go.


All the dresses and accessories are from Net-a-Porter.
