Yes, the world might be slowing down, but not for color, and this purple décor trend is making a major comeback! After months confined in our homes, we're noticing that we prefer maximalism over minimalism, and when looking to brighten up our homes (and moods), and this hue is front-and-center, and we can't say we're surprised. 

The pandemic has heightened our anxiety (in more than one way), and as we turn to our homes — and home décor — to bring a sign of relief or calmness, there's nothing better (or easy) than furnishing your home in purple décor. 

Lilac — or lavender – is already well-known for its calming ways, so what is more intelligent than accessorizing the best armchair with a purple pillow; or wrapping yourself up in a subtle lilac blanket. Your accessories don't have to be over-the-top to get the job done; here, a little goes a long way. 

But if you don't believe us? We're here to not only convince you but help you too. Here are five purple décor items that will keep you feeling safe and your home sharp at the same time!
