in pooh‘s A new series on Trend, we’re asking designers to share their favorite finds right now.
It’s decorating season in cheerful colors, and one pastel family in particular is making big waves in the design world. “We love the lavender-and-lilac trend,” says the designer. Jean Leo. “On the other hand, calming and calming colors can be used, especially when paired with soft gray or black. However, they can also take on a more playful tone that makes them a great choice for a playroom or children’s room.”
For inspiration, we asked Liu and the designers Michelle Gerson And the Shoshana Shapiro To share their favorite pale purple finds and how to incorporate them into the interior.

“When designing in modern colors, we make sure to choose pieces that complement larger items but are easily interchangeable if you want an update. Side chairs, ottomans, and stools will be the biggest items we might use in modern fabrics for this reason.”
