Why Purple Is The Perfect Color For Your Yoga Studio

Purple is an intermediate hue between blue and red in the visible spectrum, often associated with luxury and often chosen by royalty as their signature hue. As one of the colors associated with spirituality and mysticism, Purple also inspires creativity; which makes it a favorite hue among brands looking to exude mystery.

This shade is an eye-catching grayish purple with an undertone of violet that works beautifully in rooms filled with natural light. It pairs nicely with other neutral tones like Gris Morado to create an uncommonly tranquil space.

Yoga studios that specialize in spirituality and meditation find it hard to go past this hue for their interior design scheme, evoking images from nature while feeling grounded and relaxing at once. Pair this shade with other neutral hues in the palette like warm Raisin Black for added depth.

This shade features a slight bluish undertone, making it not quite as warm as Traditional Purple but making it an excellent alternative when you need something warmer in hue.

Purple was historically one of the most costly dyes, making it popular with royalty and the wealthy alike. Queen Elizabeth I once banned anyone except close family members from wearing it! Today however, its use is more widely recognized – becoming an option for both men’s and women’s fashion alike.

History traces its development back to Tyre in Phoenicia where an ancient pigment called Tyrian purple first surfaced around 1,500 BC. One local resident was taking their dog for a stroll when they noticed their pet was covered in an unexpected purple substance – according to legend, their pet may have been playing with an inedible mollusk that contained dye that gave the sea water its unique hue.

Modern use of purple began with a Chinese painter developing a synthetic version of Tyrian purple that was unstable and difficult to work with; nevertheless, it was cheaper than indigo and became the predominant hue used for wall paintings, pottery pieces, crafts projects and more. Later in 13th century Japan would adapt this art form from China.

Roku, Switch and Yahoo are among many tech businesses who have adopted blue as part of their logo and branding, perhaps as a nod to its historical relevance in both regions. A recent study has also indicated that people associate blue with intelligence and creative thought – all factors contributing to its current popularity among companies within technology and media industries.
