Lilac interiors are the thing you should be heading for if you think that the time has come to refresh your home design. Contemporary interior design is all about searching for new solutions and rethinking what we already know – so why not give a boost to the traditional furnishings with a pastel color? Check out the color schemes and home accessories inspiration for a contemporary interpretation of the traditional interior design style in those magnificent lilac interiors…
The color is just perfect for the modern reinterpretation of the clasical interior design style. Lilac interiors can be strictly modern – but personally I see this color suitable rather for the furnishings and home design that has a certain traditional elegance about it… Whether it would be just an accent wall or home accessory, or an entire color scheme basing on different shades of violet, lilac is always worth giving it a try.
Playing with the tradition – a wallpaper featuring a scene straight from a rococo painting, yet converted to warm shades of grey. By framing it with long, luxurious-looking silk curtains, you bring it to a gallery display level. The apartment has some detail that refers to historic styles – wood mouldings and whitewashed oak floors. Such elegance could only be matched with a tufted ottoman in a slightly darker dim shade of lilac and color details in peach, black and white, just like on this striped wing armchair.
This seems to be the perfect solution for your bedroom. The sunny shades of cream and warm grey carpentry require some color accent in a slightly colder shade – and here the velvet lilac armchair does just the job. In order to make this interior design more lively, there are some organic patterns on the cushion and rug.
The quintessence of luxury – lilac and silver color scheme. The focal point of this interior is naturally the lilac wallpaper, but there is still a lot of texture and detail to the rest of the design. The tufted bed frame, crystal-inspired table lamp, mirrored bedside table – all of the interior is filled with intricate finishes and sculpted forms.
Lilac and coral is probably not the obvious color key that you think of. With a lot of white, beige and gold furniture, the opposing colors complete each other very well. Notice that lovely feminine details – the floral screen and organic wall lamp? Another example of a traditional bedroom where a tufted bed is a must for reaching the luxurious feel about the design.
The lilac velvet chesterfield sofa certainly is a statement piece. To highlight that the walls have been painted in a similar shade of violet. As you can see, lilac goes extremely well with black, navy blue and brass, but then it needs some neutral tones to calm the color scheme down.
The pinkish shade of lilac has been used all around this interior. It dominates it, but with golden and white accents that are just as strong, it does not seem overwhelming – it creates a sense of retro elegance and luxury instead. Remember that if you are aiming for such effect you must stick only to the top quality interior design materials, otherwise it would look tacky.
The deep hue of the velvet chesterfield sofa is matching the moss green home design accents. The color scheme of this contemporary clasical interior bases on the contrast of saturated and muted tones – remember to decide which ones you use for which part of the design and stick only to that, or otherwise it may create chaos. It is either deep hue of accessories and furnishing and muted interior, or the other way round. Applause for the subtle botanical accents.
A loft design could also be a contemporary interpretation of traditional. With a lilac divider wall matching the lilac mid-century sofa you could use anthracite and brass accents to give the modern edge to the design. With a large open space a fur rug is a must – makes it seem simply warmer and finished down to the last detail.
I hope that all of the traditional interior design style fans, as well as those of you who only took to it after seeing what lilac interiors can be enjoyed the article and have found some inspiration for you home decor.
