February may be associated with the colour of love, but when it comes to birth stones, the purple-violet hued quartz amethyst rules. The Mumbai Mix Team tells you how to make the most of it before the month is out
If you love pastels and are unsure about whether you’re ready to add bold hues to your space, amethyst is the perfect colour to start with. The light hue complements dark colours such as brown as well as metallic shades such as silver and gold. Similar to a pretty lavender, the royal colour will add a soothing aura to your space. Here’s how we’re adding it to our homes — in case you want to follow suit!
An aromatic adventure
