1. Purple reign 
The dye originally used to create this colour was hard to come by and expensive, which is why purple is associated with power, wealth and royalty. Even in a powder room, it can add an air of luxe—as shown here by walls in Brinjal No. 22 by Farrow & Ball. Hues of purple have been favoured in a number of 2017 colours of the year, including three of our favourites, so you can choose just the right "regal" for any room.

Shadow (2117-30), Benjamin Moore

Violet Verbena (PPG1169-5), PPG Paints

You Look Mauve-lous (SC 169-0), Beauti-Tone
