Recently, Color Strategist Lori Sawaya produced this Colorgraphic that shows Purple's meanings:
Color Marketing Group think that "From office to home, from youth market to luxury goods, purple has as much masculine as feminine appeal. Confident women and real men wear purple!" I love this turn of purple towards men!
Lori Sawaya has developed a palette of plums and purples in an Infographic that explains how and where you can use purple. If you want it, you can download it in PDF format here:
We are currently seeing purple and its related hues featured in many products, as in this sofa from Anéguil:
Or in this jardinière from the same brand:
Also in this glass washbasin from Courant Verre:
And in this beautiful carpet by Heuga.
As for Colour Palettes combining purple, I love this one created and shared by Kate Smith:
Purple was showcased by CAUS as early as in their 2011-12 Trends Report in GLOBAL ARTISAN TREND. Don't you be reminded of Pantone's Tangerine Tango by some of the hues in this palette?
I love how Jane Hall used purple in this interior:
And how JPM did combine it here:
JPM Design, via Pinterest.
We could go on and on... and it would take long. I only expect you love purple as much as I do,be it trendy or not!
