Purple has the balance of red’s stimulation and blue’s calming properties. It is traditionally associated with royalty, majesty, and nobility as well as having a spiritual or mysterious quality. Darker shades often represent luxury or opulence, while lighter shades are quite feminine, sentimental, and even nostalgic.

It works with blues, greens, oranges, and its complementary color, yellow, but it also combines well with other shades and tones of purple.
