Color Inspiration: Lilac

 Carolyne Roehm

Nature is my color inspiration.  Today in Connecticut the Lilacs are in full bloom.  I cut loads of blossoms from my bushes this morning to brighten up my office and my home.  In past years the deer have feasted on the buds and haven't left much for me to enjoy, but this year my bushes are tall enough so the deer couldn't reach a good deal of the buds.  Below are some great examples of using lilac in the home, either as an accent color, or boldly as the main color.  Who wouldn't want a little lilac in their life.  Happy May.  Enjoy.
