A Royal Purple

Purple is my favorite colour!

While having the shortest wavelength among all the other colours, this colour also speaks of many shades from lavender (light purple) to violet (extremely dark purple). According to colour psychology purple denotes creativity, luxury, royalty or richness among others.

The above should hardly be a wonder as purple is created by mixing red and blue. This makes it showcase a lovely fusion which uses the energy of red and at the same time retains the calmness of blue. At the same time, it does not fit into a particular mold as unlike other colours, it can neither be classified as a warm colour or cool one.

This is what makes purple different. And probably that’s what makes me like it so much- Two familiar colours (red and blue) turning into something different (purple) which cannot be categorized.

So what’s your favorite colour and what do you feel whenever you see it? Share it in the comments.

PS- Not sure if it has any connection, but one of my favourite bands is called Deep Purple.

    Thanks a bunch…Now I got that stuck in my head all day.
    Oh, well; I guess things could be worse….


  2. Although I knew purple is a combination of red and blue, I never thought of it in terms of “energy”… combining the energy of red and calmness of blue. My favorite color growing up was purple. My room was decorated in purple.
