Lilac is the Hot Design Color of the Season

Lilac is the Hot Design Color of the Season

Lilac. It’s here; it’s everywhere. And, while the jury is still out for some homeowners, many interior and furniture designers have embraced it full-force. In fact, I’m speculating that it will be the 2014 color of the year because I feel like I see it everywhere.

Take one of my favorite local furniture stores in Mount Pleasant – Celadon. They are boasting two beautiful lilac couches that are accented perfectly with fun colors and patterns. You can see why lilac can certainly be treated as a ‘new’ neutral.

I love the hint of green on these pillows, and isn’t that couch to die for?

The lilac on this couch makes it modern and refreshing.

As an active pinner on Pinterest, I often see new images popping up daily that incorporate lilac. Here’s one I found with lilac paint colors.

Too many lilac shades to consider. They are amazing!

After all of the wonderful inspiration, I’ve decided to paint one of my client’s walls lilac to help bridge the gap between the masculine furniture chosen with a hint of lighter femininity. I’m dying to show you the final pics. Coming soon…

Here are some additional motivating discoveries from Houzz to get your creativity flowing. There is no design end. Lilac can officially go anywhere – couches, walls, pillows, drapes, rugs and fun accent pieces! Take a look.

Add as little or as much as you’d like. This last photo shows how just a touch of lilac really made that living room refreshing and beautiful. Are you tempted to buy or try lilac now?
