Synopsis: In this seventh color closeup, we're looking at purples! This blog is a little peek into our purple color selection paired with some common items so that you can see what they look like. Read for more!

Purple is very “in” right now for home decor. It can be a rich, dark color or a very light, feminine shade. It’s super versatile. Gray and purple in particular can be a very common color combination. So, say you want a new decal from Beautiful Wall Decals to spice up a gray bedroom. But what shade of purple to pick? What exact shade goes with your particular wall? Don't worry, we're here to clear up any color crises you may have!

Beautiful Wall Decals has three shades of purple. Let’s start with Violet (40), our darkest purple shade. Below is a picture of our three purples next to a red onion. As you can see, this onion is much darker and slightly redder than our Violet (40). It’s also nowhere close to our Lilac (42) or Lavender (43) shades. Violet is the closest of our colors to a traditional crayon purple color.

Next, we have a picture below of a grape jelly jar. The checked lid is closer to our Lavender (43) color, somewhere in between Violet (40)and Lavender (43). Lavender (43) is a medium purple tone, leaning heavier on the bluer end of the purple spectrum. Our Lavender (43)color is very close to the color of actual lavender flowers.

As a side note, we had nothing on hand to compare our Lilac (42) shade to. As you can see from the above picture, it’s the lightest of our purple shades.  It’s actually really close to the color of an actual lilac flower.

The picture below is an assortment of purple things to compare against out three shades of purple. As you can see, eggplants, red onions, and purple potatoes are darker than our Violet (40) color. A dark chocolate candy is between Violet (40) and Lavender (43), but the wrapper is metallic and much redder. The checkered lid of the jelly jar is closer to Lavender (43).

I really hope this helps explain our purple shades a little better.
