Lilac is the colour of the moment, and we’ve put together the perfect edit of home accessories hued in this wisteria shade.

Monochrome is out and colour is most certainly in. From experimental paint trends to interesting colour combinations, being bright at home is en vogue.

It’s something we’ve seen a lot of across industries, from fashion’s much-loved obsession with dopamine dressing right down to the interiors set, as seen at Salone del Mobile Milano.

Of all the hues getting airtime right now, lilac is the shade that’s really having a moment and it could be seen peeking through various exhibitions and installations during Milan’s most famous gathering of interior designers, architects and decor lovers. 

“Milan is always unbelievable for colour; it seems to set the tone for everything,” said Adam Daghorn, head of design at MADE.com

“One of the most predominant colours seen this year was lilac. Trend forecasters WGSN have recently labelled ‘digital lavender’ as their colour of the year for 2023 and the uplifting shade has been predicted to be seen everywhere in the coming months, from catwalks to bathrooms and everything in between. 

“Signifying stability, serenity, and digital escapism, the calming and versatile hue works in all areas of the home and can quickly revamp, refresh, or completely transform a room. Coupled with Kate Bush’s track Running Up That Hill and her iconic lilac fuelled video reaching number 1 in the charts this month, it really is the colour of the moment.” 

Whether it’s a muted take that edges on mauve, a bluish lavender or a sugary, pastel tone fit for your childhood bedroom, lilac has been crowned cool. 

We’re seeing lilac used both in a maximalist sense and as part of a pared-back Scandi aesthetic. However you style this irresistible colour, you’ll love the on-trend home accessories we’ve picked out as part of our lilac edit. Happy shopping.
