Posted: Jan 15 2018Last Updated: Jan 15 2018

15 January 2018 - Move aside, Greenery—it’s an Ultra Violet year. Bold, mystical and associated with the crown chakra—what is believed to be our gateway to higher states of consciousness—the vivid Ultra Violet can be worked into your Hong Kong property in magically subtle ways, or as unabashedly purple home décor. Here are our recommendations:


Fifty Shades of Violet
