Trend Color Spotlight: Standing Ovation

by Diana Olvera

New purples begin their pursuit on the popularity of Millennial Pink! This month’s trend color feature, Standing Ovation N570-2, is a light, near-neutral lilac.

Standing Ovation is inspired by spiritualism, mindfulness and healing energy, offering calming spaces.

Soft purples like lavender or lilac are soothing, fresh and sweet, Standing Ovation is a subdued purple tone dustier than lavender. This light lilac has slight red-cast that feels fresh yet mature. Subdues or grayed out pastel purples like Standing Ovation also present an opportunity to update rooms with a touch of color in a subtle way, offering optimism and sophistication. Styling is another key way to bring freshness to this color work with dark shades or white to emphasize the contrast.
