Guest Post from Design Shuffle

Rebecca and Ty are off to Beverly Hills this weekend for a quick getaway, so we've got a guest post from Design Shuffle for you today.  Have a great weekend and enjoy!

Hi, all! I'm Mari here from Design Shuffle, a fabulous online community where interior designers can show their work and design enthusiasts from around the globe can find interior design inspiration for their own projects. As a writer for Design Shuffle, I am often able to visit great blogs like Desert Girls Vintage to share decorating ideas and trends. I really enjoyed Rebecca's post about her love of lilacs. She inspired me to share some of my favorite lilac-infused rooms in this guest post. Lilac hues for interior spaces are really gaining in popularity right now. Lilac color palettes often evoke the lovely feminine feel of those gorgeous blossoms of the same name. Whether pale, bright or with a lovely brown undertone, lilacs seem to draw us in by their beauty. So do the eight spaces we've brought to share with you today. Even more, lilac seems to fit in nearly any room. From bathrooms to bedrooms, you'll see just how to make it work for you. So do the eight spaces we've brought to share with you today. Please enjoy!   Lilac Space
This stunning lilac wall recently caught my eye and continues to hold my attention as I return to look at it time and again. Delicate and feminine, it brings soft color, life and movement to a soaring space. Lilac Space
This pretty bedroom design pairs lilac and white for a crisp summery look. I love the pale lilac as a background for a shapely floral headboard flanked by clear glass lamps with white shades. Lilac Space
Silk drapes in gold and smoky purple are a stunning contrast to lilac walls. It's such a gorgeous combination. Lilac Space
This glamorous bedroom is all dressed up in an unexpectedly bright lilac on lilac Chinoiserie wallpaper. A chic upholstered bed with tufted headboard is accented with several lilac hues. Lilac Space
From a bedroom in lilac with pink undertones, let's turn to a dining room done in a lilac that's almost blue. I'm really loving the dining chairs and the lovely mural-like wallpaper. Lilac Space
This pretty powder room is reminiscent of the brown side of lilac blooms—so gorgeous. Silver accents always work with lilac, but these are simply perfect for this space. Lilac Space
Lilac wallpaper was chosen for this interior design—a massive closet turned dressing room. Add a pretty little lilac chair, dressing table, floor to ceiling mirror and white swirl-textured rugs and it’s a dream come true.

 Sometimes, just a few details are enough to satisfy that craving for lilac. Here a small floral arrangement and lilac accented pillow shams are perfect. I love the delicate lilac monogramming.
