Accessories to Tranquilify Your Home

Purple is the color of red and blue combined. Think about this. Red is warming and blue is cooling so basically purple is the ultimate balance, and this is also why it has so much symbolism behind it. Purple is a force to be reckoned with, like the purple hearts soldiers receive for bravery. Yet at the other end of the spectrum it is calming, like flowers in an open field. No matter what way you see the color purple, there is no denying the effect of its calmness.

Although I’m not living on my own yet, I have always had such a vision of what I want every room in my future home to look like. One of my favorite colors is a deep, jewel toned green – which is where my blog color scheme came from!
