African Violet, Pantone colour 2013: lilac wedding pinspiration board

African Violet, one of the Pantone colours of 2013 – otherwise known as lilac – is a perennially popular colour choice for weddings.

Lilac is popular teamed up with pink and I particularly love it with deeper purple and all shades of blue.

But today I’ve created a lilac wedding inspiration board showing lilac with crisp white – and also with beige.  As an icy colour, lilac looks immaculate with white.  And I love the way the earthy texture of beige burlap contrasts with cool lilac, warming and softening the overall effect.
