In case you missed it, Lilac has dethroned Millennial Pink as the most loved pastel of the year. From adding style to rustic decor to cheering up a blank wall, lilac is slaying the decor world with its soft and refreshing tone. This versatile shade works beautifully in a contemporary as well as in a traditional setup.
Shades of Lilac are soothing on the eyes and therapeutic for the soul. When combined with other shades, lilac can stimulate creativity and encourage positive thinking. So, if you are a creative person, looking to have a corner dedicated to brainstorming ideas, then this pretty-looking shade is perfect for your home. Here is a guide to decorating with lilac in and around your home.
1. Dress up a bathroom
The soft and refreshing tone of lilac is a perfect fit for any style of bathroom. If you plan to use lilac as the base paint for your bathroom walls, then accent it with green, gray, and yellow accessories. Do not be hesitant to use this color in a small bathroom, as it lends an air of comfort and flowery freshness to the space, making it appear spacious.
2. Add glitz to your kitchen
Muted lilac and purple are great to use on a kitchen wall. For instance, in this kitchen, the lilac wall adds a splash of flowery freshness, making it appear so scrumptious that it surely sets the tone for an appetizing meal. Now, no matter how unpleasant the weather is outside, it will always feel like spring in your kitchen!
3. Enhance your home’s curb appeal
Looking to enhance your home’s curb appeal? Why not add a splash of lilac to create a lasting impression on your guests! However, refrain from using dark shades of lilac in the exterior of your home, as it absorbs light and fades much quicker as compared to pale and muted tones. In here, the purple-colored front door adds just enough whimsy to make the space look interesting.
4. Spruce up your guest bedroom
Want to try lilac without the risk of getting it all wrong? Well, your guest bedroom is the ideal spot for such an endeavor. Introduce lilac with white and enjoy the soft and soothing feeling complemented with an elegant chandelier and white furniture pieces. Good sleep is guaranteed as you walk into this beautiful lilac guest bedroom.
5. Paint an accent wall
Planning to add lilac into your home, but not sure where to start? Why not paint a blank wall in lilac. In the picture above, the lilac accent wall looks striking, unexpected, and oh-so-unique!
6. Chill out in a lilac living room

7. Add lilac to your kid’s room
Lilac evokes a sense of creativity and imagination, making it a must-have color in your toddler’s nursery, or even a teenager’s room. To bind the room together, pick bedding and window treatments that have a bit of purple in them.
