Use A Lovely Lilac Color For Elegant, Romantic Style

Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 7, 2021

Victorian Lilac


Welcome a beautiful lilac color as an elegant way to decorate with purple.  Our Victorian Lilac collection is equally at home in romantic style homes as it is in shabby chic decor, bohemian abodes, or English cottage style.  See how you can use this lavender color print alongside other home accents to style your kitchen, living room, bedroom, dining table, or bath.

Use a lush lilac color in a romantic bedroom

Our soft, medium pastel purple bedding will make you actually want to make your bed in the morning. Pair our lavender duvet cover or bedspread with gentle lavender bedding for sweet dreams at night and sweet mornings ahead.

A French lilac color like this looks inviting set against the warm brown tones of a wooden bedframe. Silver, chrome, or other metallics feel chic and modern with lilac purple colors nearby. Pair lilac color linens with crisp whites and painted furniture for pure cottage style.

Mix and match Saffron Marigold

If you crave as much purple as possible, and if you adore the boho nature of pattern mixing, then bring on this sari-inspired print!

A room filled with global, eclectic home decor (a library, perhaps, or art-filled living room) can benefit by this mixing of purples. These purple curtains bring boho flair to romantic styles.
