This year, it seemed like there was no escaping the millennial pink trend—not that we wanted to. The color was popping up everywhere; we saw it on walls, upholstery, tile and more. As the year winds down, there are a few subtle hints of a new color trend in the making. Soft purple
, or lilac, is a shade we are starting to see creep into homes. Slowly but surely, this color is coming through in various ways.
If you are a tad bit nervous about bringing a new shade into you space, start small. You can choose a lilac-colored ceramic vase. Perhaps a pair of light purple pillows will liven up your space—or you can participate in the trend with an abstract piece of artwork.
This is a sophisticated color. This lilac shade is begging to be surrounded by high-end furniture and décor, as designer Amanda Reid
has done. Accent your space with touches of gold. These metallic hints support this soft shade well. If you are looking for a mature twist on a pastel color, lilac is for you.
