Royalty and Spirituality: Purple is royalty. A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color.

Nature of Purple: Purple has a special, almost sacred place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious. Because purple is derived from the mixing of a strong warm and strong cool color it has both warm and cool properties. A purple room can boost a child’s imagination or an artist’s creativity. Too much purple, like blue, could result in moodiness.

Culture of Purple: The color of mourning for widows in Thailand, purple was the favorite color of Egypt’s Cleopatra. It has been traditionally associated with royalty in many cultures. Purple robes were worn by royalty and people of authority or high rank. The Purple Heart is a U.S. Military decoration given to soldiers wounded in battle.

My favorite color too. Purple was originally named after a shade of dye made from a mollusk. It was so hard to obtain that it was much more expensive then gold and thus was only available to royalty. That’s how that association was formed ie: Tyrian purple. Purple combines the stability of blue with the energy of red. It symbolizes power, nobility and ambition. It is also associated with wisdom, creativity, mystery and magic. Surveys suggest 75 percent of pre-adolescent children prefer purple to all other colors. That’s why you’ll find it in so many children’s products.


The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication. It is also feminine and romantic. However, because it is rare in nature, purple can appear artificial
