Color Inspiration for Your Home: Lilac Gray

Pantone recently released the 2016 Color of the Year, and for the first time it’s not one, but two shades! Serenity and Rose Quartz are both gorgeous, but I want to highlight another Pantone color that falls right in between—Lilac Gray. It’s predicted to be one of the top colors this spring, and it’s definitely one I would use in my home. I especially love the idea of Lilac Gray as a fresh, unexpected neutral. Instead of boring beige, why not go for Lilac Gray window treatments, walls, or furniture? They’ll make a statement while still looking timeless and elegant.


Lilac Gray is gorgeous when paired with crisp white, but it also mixes well with lots of other colors. It’s a pretty easy shade to incorporate into your home, no matter your style and color palette!

You can go big with Lilac Gray or incorporate it on a smaller scale with accessories like tea towels, throw pillows, or blankets. Whatever you prefer, consider adding some of this beautiful color to your home throughout the year!
