The best lavender home decor items selected by a style editor |


Of all the color trends that are popular right now, my favorites definitely lean more toward the brighter, bolder side of the spectrum. However, I also understand that bold colors aren’t the easiest to use and that maximalist homes can feel quite jarring to some people. Although, decorating with softer neutrals, like muddy pinks and beiges, can feel a bit… safe. That’s why the rise in lavender in interior design trends totally makes sense since this color sits in both camps – it’s calming and easy on the eye but still packs a punch. 

‘Lavender is a soothing color that allows for that infusion of color into your space, yet doesn’t pack a huge punch,’ says Mimi Meacham, the founder and principal designer of Marian Louise Design. ‘If you’re not ready to go full maximalist just yet, lavender is very accessible to the color curious, especially since it looks beautiful in a variety of tones. It’s the perfect color choice for those wanting to add some interest with a zen vibe.’

The best part about lavender decor (at least in my opinion) is the fact that you can use the color simply as an accent piece if minimalism is more your vibe, or cover the whole room with it through accessories, paint colors, furniture, and the like. Even if you opt for the latter, however, your room still won’t be overwhelmed with color, especially if you choose softer shades of lavender. That’s the beauty of this trend, and no matter which way you prefer to go, there are decor items that’ll help you achieve just the look you’re after.
