THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK
Aubergine front door
Painted front doors are making a comeback! Whereas anthracite and grey doors have been portrayed as the standard for quite some time, aubergine front doors have now re-captured the market. At Pirnar, we offer various front door colours, but aubergine has become one of our particular favourites.
The significance of aubergine
The term 'aubergine' has a Sanskrit origin and is commonly used to describe the vibrant purple colour of a ripe aubergine. It is a dark, rich purple with hues of red and brown. Depending on cultivation and varieties, aubergines can differ in colour, ranging from light pink to green and even purple to grey front doors shades.
Purple is a royal colour
Purple is the colour of kings and queens – its rarity adding to the royal atmosphere.
Purple - a unique colour
The rich dark purple is a mix of red and blue. Purple shades are relatively rare in nature, making this colour quite unique. Before the accidental synthesis by the English chemist William Henry Perkin in 1856, aubergine dye was manufactured from mucus secreted by the spiny dye-murex snail. It is not surprising that purple has been one of the most expensive and coveted colours throughout history.
Aubergine colour carries historical significance
The admiration with aubergine shades has lingered even after chemistry made them widely accessible. Using the colour aubergine for your front door captures the deep, historical significance while carrying its rich symbolism and meanings with it.
Aubergine door colours – History meets modern design
After the colour aubergine became more accessible to all classes, there was a real hype about aubergine-coloured clothes, accessories and art. Consequently, aubergine front doors adorned more and more house exteriors and became widely popular.
