Purple Interiors – A Tulip Inspiration
February 16, 2011 § 2 Comments
I hope everyone had a relaxing, enjoyable Valentines.
My love and I made a wonderful gorgonzola crusted filet mignon drizzled with a port wine reduction sauce; absolutely amazing. I was given beautiful violet tulips –living because he is against cut flowers—and they are the inspiration for this post. Purple is one of my favorite colors, it’s not too warm, it’s not too cool, just right, like little bear’s porridge.
The physiological affects of colors intrigues me, so I must add just a little: Purple is known to be a uplifting color that calms the mind and nerves. It also offers a sense of spirituality and encourages creativity and imagination. The physiological effects of the color depend on the hue, whether it be more violet or a bluish purple. Bluish purples can be tranquil and soothing with a ‘mysterious’ depth. Violet is a more passionate color and demands more attention in a room.
