Lilac is a magical colour which still features the same imaginative qualities as purple. Lilac is a shade which compliments fresh and bright interiors, for a tranquil atmosphere. Lilac is a reminder of spring and the beautiful blossoming flowers it brings, a very delicate, unobtrusive colour which everyone finds to provide a fresh and clean feeling in the home as well as aiding mental clarity. Lilac looks particularly lovely in country cottages because of its reflection of nature.
