I do like purple in its varied shades. It's never been my emotional go-to color family like green, blue and brown but it's quite magical and pretty. Maybe I just don't have enough experience dwelling in purple spaces to truly appreciate the aura it can wend because after looking at these spaces, I think I could embrace it.

A few images that are testament to purple’s stylish power...
