This morning I noticed that the leaves on the Jacaranda tree in the neighbour’s garden have all fallen off. This means in a couple of weeks the tree will be covered in purple flowers and the view from my kitchen will look like this.
This is another one of my favourite combinations – purple and green. The house I grew up in had lime green walls downstairs – toilet, laundry and hallway with the cupboard doors in the laundry painted purple. Maybe that’s why this colour combination appeals. I love it in flowers and when we planted out the garden in our current house, I chose mainly purple flowering plants
And I’ve always been a big purple and green fashion follower. I wore green at school for five years so need to temper it with another colour if I am going to wear it these days.
I like the bright, lime green with a darker purple giving strength and balance to the combination. Here are few rooms I’ve found that use the colour combination well.
And the other day I passed these irrestible pet beds. The photo makes the green look a bit yellow.
And this house in Brisbane shows a clever use of the colours.
Purple is the colour of Passion and Green is a calm colour which explains why this pairing works. If you are wanting to experiment with this combination have a look at these Dulux Colours.
