Color Your LIfe Series

by LeBaron Interiors

This new series is a way for me to teach you about colors and color theory by giving examples and focusing on a certain aspect of color at one time. 

Growing up my mother always use to read a book called...A Color Clown Comes to Town. And so in design school and art classes I ALWAYS referred back to that little book that explained color basics. I even bought it for my little boy! So you can say my love for color and color theory started at a young age.
So today...we will be focusing on the color/hue of PURPLE!

Also known as violet, this color is located between red and blue on the color wheel and is said to be the perfect combination. Taking the reds focusing and active energy and combining it with blues cooling and calming nature it creates a sensual atmosphere in interiors. Most people either love it or hate it.

Meanings for purple:
-Nobility and Royalty
-Mystery and Magic

Artist love the color purple because it encourages imagination and creativeness. 
Here are some interiors and items that are purple that I love.
