Millennial pink may have ruled your Instagram feed last year, but spring is here, so it’s about time you gave your life an upgrade with the color of 2018: millennial lilac. The shade is a subdued, light purple with lavender vibes that will instantly make you feel more relaxed.
“I think we’ll be seeing variations of these dusted plum, amethyst-esque shades in entryways and living rooms,” Behr Paint Erika color expert Woelfel told HelloGiggles. “Lilac feels more grown-up than pink, and creates a welcoming and calm aura.”
