The Symbol of Originality and Creativity
Ultra Violet represents originality and visionary thinking, and it opens the mind to what lies ahead and beyond. Ultra Violet leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than red. While there are still enough red undertones to add passion, it is the touch of periwinkle that makes the cool prevail, lending itself to unique color combinations in fashion. If you’ve got a child, this might be a great color to add to a bedroom or playroom—it will inspire creativity and growth!
Ultra Violet’s History
Long a symbol of unconventionality, counterculture icons such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix boldly brought to the forefront purples as a personal expression of their individuality. Historically, Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color. You will see the purple-toned hue in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places.
Ways to Bring Ultra Violet to Your Home
Whether you want just a little or a lot, you can add this great color in numerous ways. Throw pillows, decorative art, wallpaper or paint, bedding, and furniture are all candidates for a little Ultra Violet. In fact, you can even add it to window fashions. Hunter Douglas, the leader of window fashion innovation, has long added this color to their fabric pallet of window shades. You can find it in Applause® and Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds, and Designer Screen Shades. Have fun and add a pop of purple today!
