Purple Reigns: PPG Names Violet Verbena (PPG1169-5) 2017 Color of the Year – June 14, 2016
Violet Verbena “gray-purple: playful, elegant and calming” ~ from PPG Paints.
So, I’m not at all surprised a purple hue has found itself at the top of the color wheel. We’ve been noticing purple turning up all over the place!
From PPG The Voice of Color. The Violet Verbena serves as an ideal evolution of the bohemian, gypset (gypsy-jetset) consumer lifestyle that has been trending recently. As this type of consumer shifts in to new attitudes and experiences. They are becoming more mindful, more mystic, and more deeply involved in spiritual exploration and fascinated with cosmic exploration. “Consumers are drawn to the galactic dark colors that combine deep purples, blues and grays to create an intriguing futuristic vibe.” Schlotter said.
Since Gray can skew purple and visa versa it makes sense this rich purple hue has made it to the top of the color wheel. Therefore, gray being at the center of home decor it’s no wonder the rich-toned purple hue of Violet Verbena was named 2017 Color of the Year by PPG Paint.
My Simple Real Life Truth ~
I just purchased a nail polish color OPI Taupe-less Beach. It’s a pale purple/gray color. So when I see certain colors penetrate the fashion industry like this it’s an indication to me that they are on the horizon for home interiors.
Purple home decor will be around for a while especially with a hint of sophisticated gray.
So will you want to add this rich hue to your home decor?
And more importantly how? By making a statement with paint or by adding a touch with accent pieces and decorative accessories? It’s all up to you … be happy + be comfortable in your home.
Enjoy your weekend!
