THE COLOR PURPLE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN


 



Purple is one of those colors with so many different variations.  Like blue and green you'll find a real range of monochromatics to play with.  It's a color associated most with flowers (Violets, lavender, lilacs), sunsets and in some cases, water.  Purple was once the color of high clergy and royalty because only the nobles could afford the dyes that once upon a time were so hard to come by.  Purple was one of the colors I incorporated into the scheme of my own wedding.  The family tartan was green, purple and yellow which made for an interesting palette.  You'll be surprised how beautifully this color can blend with others or stand on it's own.

purple has been such a huge color for us this past year with lighting as well. Will Apricot be the new purple this year? Or will we be back to amber?
