home: trend [ lilac ]
Go against the grain, choose a colour that unexpectedly is making waves in the interiors world. Choose lilac.
This calming soft tone is of course reminiscent of previous decades but with a modern approach it’s a perfect new colour to use. Layered up in shades it’s cool and calm but also subtlety feminine as long as you don’t go too floral or flouncy. Stick to solid tones and gain texture from velvets and knits. Create a room with midcentury furniture in teak or walnut; and lilac will compliment with ease. Look for danish silhouettes in armchairs and sofa design and keep accessories to a minimum.
