Meaning, symbolism and psychology of color: All About the Color purplePurple embodies the balance of red's stimulation and blue's calm. This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone is clearly defined, at which point the purple takes on the characteristics of its undertone. With a sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite color of adolescent girls. Written by Kate Smith, CMG, CfYH

When I was 12 years old my parents built a new home.  This was the first time I had my own room and I was able to choose the colour scheme and decorate (of coarse with my Mom's help). My first selection was gorgeous wall to wall two-toned purple shag carpet! Then I added a mini-print purple and white bedspread with an attached ruffled skirt and matching shams. The drapes were also coordinating with a ruffled detail. It was my dream room.....of coarse there were a few posters; Shawn Cassidy, The Bay City Rollers and Donny Osmond.

I've always secretly been in love with this "royal" colour and it's resurgence in the last few years has ignited my memories and my love of all things purple.
