Lilac is a soft purple that has both purple and white undertones. Lilac is often used in country decor, shabby chic style and eclectic style homes. It is also used for children’s bedrooms, regardless of the style of the rest of the home. Lilac is one of those colors that can be tricky when it is painted on a wall. Some shades of lilac will gray-out, and others will look too blue or red. Every little girl, we know loves pretty colors, such as lilac. For a room she’ll cherish, select fabrics with flowers, trellises, cute animals, or butterflies. You might stencil flowers, vines, and butterflies on walls as a colorful accent, using paint colors matched to your fabric or wallpaper choices. Don’t forget soft, airy curtains for the windows.
