In the dream state of Sally in the Being human (US) S02E10, when she was controlled by her Reaper self, why was everything purple?

Building in the dream world purple Building on the original world with green colour

Even the green from the building was replaced with purple. And show's title card was altered too

Building's interior was all black, white and gray to highlight purple more:

Even her wardrobe was full of purple except cloths from her dead self:

What is the significance of using purple in the dream world?

  • I'd fancy a guess, purple (normally a pinker purple) is associated with Lotuses, as in Lotus Eaters from the Odyssey. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LotusEaterMachine It's partly to foreshadow that it's all just in her head. – cde Aug 25 '15 at 23:07
