Like many colors, violet is named after the flower whose shade it bears. Unlike hues such as purple or green, violet is not a composite color. Instead, it stands alone at the end of the visible light spectrum and sits between the wavelengths of invisible ultraviolet light and blue light.
Aside from the border, violet evokes the same feelings of intelligence and confidence that blue does. It is also associated with creativity and individuality.
Violet combines well with its complementary color, yellow. You can also combine it with blues and greens to add depth to your design.
