Design Tips – Pastel Power

March 21, 2016

With Easter upon us, pastels are back on the scene in clothing and home decor.  Using pastel colors can bring a light and airy feel to a room. Keep in mind, though, when used with too heavy a hand pastels can appear unsophisticated or even clinical.  By adding other elements, such as metallics and warm wood tones with texture alongside your pastel furnishings, you will create a balanced space.

Proving Pastels Are Not Just For Springtime.

I love this subtle use of color; soft grays and the splash of color within the bookshelf and artwork make this room anything but boring.

The power of blue is going strong here! These dusty blue walls, rug, and ottoman prove that the right hue can pull anyone into the room.

Pops of blush pink accents and warm tones found in the basket and nightstand complete this room. A little touch of pastel can go a long way!

Proving that when you introduce pastels into a room it doesn’t have to be paired with white walls and all light colors. Pastels can be moody too!
