Do you notice when you start to gravitate toward a decor color you previously overlooked? I’m talking about those colors that seem to have recently moved up on your list of favorites.
Over the past several weeks, my attention has been on lilac, especially the paled down version with a hint of grey. It doesn’t matter if I’m flipping through a magazine, glancing at Pinterest or watching decorating shows, rooms with lilac in them always seem to catch my eye.
I think what makes the color lilac seem fresh to me is the use of it in unexpected ways, like pairing it with gold or black to make it less sweet. I also like it as a subtle accent to otherwise neutral spaces.
Although I’m crushin’ on the color lilac at the moment, I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to grab any paint or wallpaper soon. Rather, I’m thinking a small dose will be enough to satisfy my craving.
What color is on your radar lately? Do you stick to your all-time favorites when decorating your home or do you like to take risks?
