This month we celebrate the colour of one of the most beautiful semi precious stones – Amethyst – the birthstone for February. This crystalline Quartz comes in shades of purple, lilac, and mauve.
The Amethyst meaning is spiritual growth and protection, and wearing amethyst is said to help bring you calmness and inner peace. It helps bring clarity of mind and heightens your natural intuition, helping one connect with their true passion.
In décor, this shade is dramatic and creates an air of elegance and luxury.
Purple is linked to royalty and lends itself well to lush fabrics, as can be seen on the sofas below…
Too much purple can be overpowering; consider using different shades of purple – both light and dark – to create interest.
