Stylish bedroom painted in a lilac paint colour

Lilac is one of the most calming shades on the colour wheel, making it an obvious design choice if you’re ready to transform your bedroom into a relaxing retreat. Do you love purple, but don’t think your room can handle such an intense colour? Lilac is an irresistible alternative and by no means a compromise. 

As with lavender and other pared-back takes on purple, lilac is an effective stress-buster and will instantly put you at ease. It’s also surprisingly versatile, with a huge selection of lilac paints you can use to create the bedroom of your dreams.

What Makes Lilac a Good Choice for a Bedroom?

If you’ve added more than a few purples to your master bedroom mood board, lilac is certainly worth considering. It brings many of the same qualities as purple to a bedroom. A richer shade will add intensity and work well alongside more sophisticated design accents. Meanwhile, walls painted in a lighter lilac will revive your room, while also bringing some much-needed tranquillity to your sleep space. 

The real beauty of lilac paints lies in their versatility. You can use them alongside just about any type of decor. Try using pink-infused lilacs to bring some feminine energy to your bedroom. If you’re in the market for a more contemporary makeover, go with cool-toned lilac that will pair with monochrome linen bedding and geometric wall art. 

You can also use lilac as the base for the perfect neutral palette. Try using it alongside earthy browns or botanical greens for a more grounded bedroom interior. For a more luxurious finish, you can use lilac alongside jewel tones or richer shades like caramel and cappuccino.
