Why Use Lilac Bedding in your Bedroom
Are you thinking of decorating your bedroom with a purple color? But are unsure which shade of purple to use? If so than you may want to consider lilac bedding. This color bedding will be a light shade of purple and will look good if you are decorating a nursery or a master bedroom.

Lilac bedding comes in many styles and sizes. Some of the more popular bedding sizes include king, queen, single, and extra long. Styles of lilac bedding range from country to modern.
More Options With Lilac Bedding
When choosing lilac bedding there are some items that you will need. For one if your bed needs a bed skirt you will want a bed skirt to match the lilac shade. Colors that match lilac well are yellows and oranges. A comforter, duvet cover or bedspread will be needed for the top of the bed. Lilac sheets will be used to cover the mattress pad. Lilac pillow cases will be used to cover pillows and optionally lilac shams can be used to cover decorative pillows.
As a second option you could purchase what is called a lilac bed in a bag set. In this type of set you will be getting everything you need to have a complete matching bedding set.
In the bag you will normally find pillow cases, a comforter, shams , and sometimes even curtains to be used for window treatments. This reminds me if you do not have matching window treatment it is something to consider as matching window curtains really pulls a room together.
