Color psychology suggests that various tinctures and tones can have a powerful impact on our mood and behavior — both good and bad. White, for example, is often linked to feelings of purity, freshness, and simplicity. Equally, it can sometimes seem stark, cold, clinical, or even isolated. Purple too has mixed connotations, ranging from mysterious and imaginative to powerful and noble.
It can be a delicate balance achieving a desired aesthetic when it comes to adding artwork in these colors to an environment, however, I’ve found on a personal level that I’m drawn to these tones more and more.
Several of my floral art prints depict blooms in shades of white and purple. Seen here, Dahlia X and Dahlia III may be photographs of the same flower form, however, the feeling these two images create in a space couldn’t be more different.
Tell me friends, which one speaks to your heart? Are you team white or team purple?
