Inspiration Gallery: Lavender and Lilac Walls

We like purple in small doses, but we have to admit we're a little apprehensive when it comes to painting a wall in pastels, especially pale lilacs and lavenders. Lately, we've seen some rooms that could sway us...

These spaces use bluish lavenders and pinkish lilacs with a bold, dark, or crisp accent color, which adds a little bit of an edge. Some of them even incorporate light purple in unexpected places, like a closet or a striped accent wall. For more tips on using pastels successfully, click here.
