Purple paint is certainly neither a popular or mainstream colour when it comes to painting most residential and commercial spaces. However, this is not to say that it should be ignored or taken off the table. It can definitely work. It’s all about how you use it and what atmosphere you want to create in your space. People are often scared of purple simply because its not the common path chosen and are unsure how to use it. But never fear! Staunch Greco Industries is here!

We will cover purple paints over the next month, selecting a wide variety of purple hues to show you.

To start off our journey of purple paint exploration please keep the following in mind:

  • Purple paint stands out as a colour that can bring high levels of elegance to a commercial or residential space. However, it is versatile. It can give off vibes of refinement or simplicity. Purple can be incredibly dramatic and moody or bright and cheerful depending on shade.


  • Hues of Purple tend to pair well with green, orange, yellow, grey, brown, black and white.


  • Shades of purple in a residential and commercial space are able to provide positive effects on the mind and body by creating an uplifting energy. In addition, purple can encourage creativity and imagination. It can also contribute to adding calmness to a space.


  • Purple can be very effective without using it for an entire room. It still has the ability to be striking and ambient in small doses. For example, a deep royal purple looks amazing and stylish when used as a the minority colour to break up the majority white or beige hues in a space.


  • Purple can work well as a neutral hue if you select a light shade, such as a light or delicate lavender. This neutral shades pairs up very well with furnishings such as sofas, arm chairs, porcelain ceramics and general antiques.
