A beautiful blend of calm blue and passionate red, purple embodies all the characteristics of creativity: wisdom, independence, courage and confidence.

To stimulate the senses and get your creative juices flowing, try painting your study, library or studio a rich, empowering shade of purple, such as aubergine, indigo or rich plum. If all-purple walls aren’t your thing, pair softer shades of lavender and violet with creams and beiges to create an elegant, calming feel.

Purple’s affinity with both blue and red also make it the perfect colour for both boys’ and girls’ bedrooms. Paint one wall a bright shade of purple for an eye-catching feature or make a neutral colour scheme pop with violet accessories and soft furnishings. Now, that’s what we call creativity.
