Color Crush: Lilac

Call it lilac, call it lavender – but this lovely little shade of purple is anything but lackluster.  Lilac is one of those colors that’s kind of a love or hate. And while some may relegate it to the nursery, I think it’s worth taking another look at. You might be surprised at how much mileage you can get out of a little lilac – and it plays really well with several other shades, too.

    Oh I’m not sure what I call it…I guess light purple is out?! 🙂 Seriously though, I’m not a fan of wearing the color. Which is weird because you and I have similar coloring and I can totally see you wearing it and looking awesome in it, so who knows. I can easily see it looking great in interiors though. I mean, look at that happy pillow!! I think it could be a cool accent color in maybe a room of blues and greens – then you have the punchy light purple (ha) coming in with bright orange. Really fresh and unique. Good eye, as always!

    • I can’t say I’m a huge fan of wearing the color either, although to be fair, I haven’t really given it a shot.
