Colour Inspiration Purple & Yellow

Leslie from Creative Mint recently posted some mood inspiration on lilac & yellow & it really got me thinking about the colour combination.
They are complementary colours which means they bring out the best in each other. They are  used together in Colour Therapy to give balance.  The balance of cool & warm colours are said to be needed for our wellbeing. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel.

purple and yellow

Lilacs, violets & purples are known "cool" colours while yellow at the opposite side of the colour wheel is a warm colour. Its the colour of the sun & when teamed with cool colours it balances it with warmth.

  1. Lilac is good, but not too sure about yellow, it depends on the "shade" personally. Although yellow kitchens seem to be happy spaces xx

  2. Yellow is such an uplifting color!
