Purple is renowned for being a spiritually rich colour that symbolises intuition, awareness and enlightenment. In Hinduism, the chakra (energy centre) that relates to pure consciousness is represented by violet. It’s believed that when your Chakra is open, you are unprejudiced and aware of the world around you.

Purple is an easy colour to incorporate into elements of your everyday life. Paint your walls pale shades of lavender and lilac for a restful retreat or decorate your room with accessories and accents in deep shades of violet. A purple rug or feature wall in your study or bedroom could even assist with productivity and provide you with a sacred, serene space in which to unwind.
