In BOHit is new On Trend series, we ask designers to share their favorite finds of the moment.

It’s the season for brightly hued decorating, and one pastel family in particular is making waves in the design world. “We love the lavender and lilac trend,” says the designer John Liu. “On the one hand, they can be calm and soothing colors to use, especially when paired with soft grays or black. However, they can also take on a more playful tone which makes them a good option for a room. games or a child’s room.

Inspired, we asked Liu and the designers Michelle Gerson and Shoshanna Shapiro to share their favorite pale purple finds and how to incorporate them into an interior.
