Colour speaking. Purple colour: prestige and relax
Frederick Beigbeder jokingly said that the purple colour was created by Parisians to stop losers interrupt breakfasts at Café de Flore. The only reason the writer’s words may be excused is because purple has always been identified with prestige and elegance.
Vivid and bold Ultra Violet was chosen the Colour Of The Year For 2018. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Colour Institute highlighed its visionary, provocative and creative character that encourages us to break the already mentioned stereotypes. Its still used sporadically in interior design as it’s a difficult and demanding colour. However, it carries very positive connotations and is worth introducing in office environment.
More subdued colours have a calming effect, relieve stress levels and help relaxing. It is not without reason that the colour is linked to spirituality and mysticism, often visible in meditation centres. It works perfect with informal work spaces, as a dominating colour of chillout and lounge zones, used on sofas and chairs.
Purple, thanks to its large colour palette, can be utilized in various arrangements and designs; consequently, it encourages us to experiment and try out different ideas and combinations.
