I don’t know about you but it feels like there’s a new colour kid on the block; a muted take on Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year ‘Ultra Violet,’ lilac has invaded our social media feeds. A fabulous complement to millennial pink, the pastel, cool-toned shade of pale purple is a surprisingly chic choice. From cushions to glassware, rugs and even sofas, here’s our top picks.
