I’m a huge fan of bright colors, but softer shades can also be used beautifully to decorate a room. Chalky pastels in blue, lavender, pink and green are making a comeback in interiors and for good reason. Pastels can be the perfect backdrop for darker shades. They can also be used to highlight an architectural detail or just add some unexpected color to a space. Consider using green pastels to bring a little bit of the outside in, with shades that reflect garden landscapes.
A simple green-blue curtain adds to the restful feel of this living room from Home & Gardens. Little hints of pastel green break up the blue and beige color scheme and bring life to this room.
The shade of green on this office wall sets a neutral backdrop, as seen in Traditional Home. It’s the perfect hue to highlight those amazing orange and black table lamps.
Pastels can also work perfectly in the most modern of spaces. The mint sofa and side table feel completely modern when enveloped by white walls and furnishings.
So, what are you favorite pastel shades this season? Do you think you’ll bring any into your interior?
