Color Crush – Sweet Lilac

As the blooms of spring start to open, a metamorphosis takes place.  Vibrant and sunny shades become more prevalent. This year our favorite looks for this most glorious of seasons are fresher and more vibrant than ever.

Sweet Lilac-a lovely shade of pink–is our new color crush for these warm and cheerful days! We love it because it’s versatile. It can endure all on it’s own, but it also plays well with other colors and adds warmth to many refreshing palettes. It’s exciting, but not overly demonstrative; and it has the kind of subtle grace that makes it easy to live with and to love.  Sweet Lilac, with its lavender undertones, is a simple choice with a whole family of color options that offers a bounty of summer possibilities.

Designers like Emilia Wickstead and Marc Jacobs have all embraced this baby pink with just a touch of lavender.  With designs that embrace femininity without being saccharine sweet, it’s yet another reason we’re crushing on the color this season and we can’t wait to add it to our own wardrobes and homes.

Sweet Lilac at Home

Make no mistake: Sweet Lilac in home decor is not at all akin to the bold pink tile and lipstick brights of mid-century design. It is an inspired complement to the newest neutrals–grey, greige, and gold accents; but it is also a dynamic choice with charcoal, darkest navy or burgundy. This unique pink adds impact to a modern bathroom and softens the hard-edge effects of graphic black and white.

The appeal of Sweet Lilac is in its uniquely flexible nature–it can be as fleeting as the blush of a pale rose petal. While at its heart the color is demure, this confectionary hue hints at sweetness, but also has a sophisticated nature that adds unexpected depth to spring and summer events.

Romantically Inclined

A summer pink that doesn’t fade easily into the background, but is also refreshingly delicate, Sweet Lilac is a cheerful choice for summer events. From formal soiree to country garden setting, layer your linen with copper and gold accessories, fine china and crystal, and living coral toned floral displays, and let it mesmerize your guests. Sweet Lilac will perform admirably, whether you use it exclusively or mix it with other tones.
