Your Love or Lack of Love for the Color Purple Has Meaning When Decorating
When decorating, we tend to either decorate in object themes, emotion themes, or color themes.
As an example, your child’s room may be decorated based on their favorite movie character, your bedroom may be decorated based on ‘Love’ for your spouse and your relationship, and other rooms may be designed solely around a specific color.
Whether you’re decorating with object or emotion themes, they’re always based on ‘color.’ A love theme for a bedroom may have shades of red in it, and your child’s movie themed room may focus on one or two colors you’ve pulled from the movie characters themselves. So without realizing it, no matter how you’ve decorated your room, you’ve based it on color in one way or another.
The bottom line is, no matter how you decorate, color is vibration.
Color represents energy, and that energy creates a mood, a reflection, an impression, a feeling, and ultimately a psychological impact on all who enter a space. I bet you didn’t think it mattered that much!
So, What Does Purple Represent in Home Decor
Whether you’re into understanding Purple as it relates to Feng Shui or you’re more interested in knowing the basic psychology behind the color purple, remember one thing, if you don’t like the color purple, don’t decorate with it. Your intention and belief are stronger than any meaning.
If you’ve ever doubted the power of color, think about businesses, big and small, and how they effectively and with planned intention, design their stores, foyers, shops, aisles, and product layouts using color as a marketing tool. Everything we see has color. Our mood, whether we know it or not, is affected by color. Color is used to elicit a specific reaction; it’s that simple.

Purple Represents Individuality, a Free Spirit, a Desire to Stand Out
You’ve never enjoyed being part of the crowd. You’ve rarely done something the way ‘the majority’ does. You sing and dance to your own tune and relish in that individual spirit. When someone walks into a room you’ve decorated you want them to see something unique, non-conforming …. almost brave. You’re excited about a decor that causes a few jaws to drop as they admire your creative spirit.

When you can’t get it done yourself, you delegate. Your drive to succeed in life is for the good of others, not at the expense of them. Having others complete the tasks you can’t or won’t do, doesn’t bother you .. in fact you don’t mind sharing in the glory.

I love purple, but in this case, I think I would use it in moderation. Still love it though.
Olivia, that’s wise – too much purple in a room can apparently make us moody 🙂
