Published On: Jan 21, 2023

In the world of interior decor, there are some colours that have endless pairing possibilities but are also considered as run-of-the-mill hues. After being used as a part of different shade palettes, purple has emerged as one of the most invigorating colour combinations to enrich our homes. Although it is not as prevalent as many other colours, purple is believed to have a supernatural aura that helps brands and designs convey elegance and superiority.

When we talk about having a sound sleep, it is essential to choose colours that promote one! 

Shades that belong to the family of blue are considered best to give you a sound sleep. Purple on the other hand, is a shade that is obtained as a product of mixing blue and red. This makes using softer shades of purple like lavender, lilac, amethyst as well as mauve an excellent choice as they boost sleepiness. Using pastel shades as compared to a dark purple colour combination will be better because they bring calmness to the space, making it easy for the eyes to adjust. Lavender combined with a magnolia purple on the opposite wall and a matching bed is a great way to add comfort to your bedroom.

6. Artistic Purple Kitchen

The kitchen showcases a unique mirror backsplash which frankly took us a moment to understand because it was a treat to the eyes. 

The mirror makes the space visually expansive and adds a shine contrasting to the golden features. As this shade has become a fashionable alternative for kitchens, it will be only fair to make a modern change.
