Soft, Subtle LAVENDER

{Color of the Week}

Purple has been long associated with royalty and wealthy, making it an ideal to make a room appear more luxurious. Use the lighter purple hue, lavender, in your interior or exterior color schemes as a primary color, through accents, or accessories. A pillow, blanket, or small vase of purple flowers can add a subtle touch of color without overpowering the room. Remember that the darker the shade of purple, the more apparent the effect, so make sure to add neutral colors to balance out the purple tones.
