Decorating With Pastel Colors
LIGHTEN YOUR HOME WITH PASTELS
Pastel colored accents lighten and soften a room.
Consider pastel patterns to create a soothing yet energizing atmosphere.
PASTELS ARE BOTH SOOTHING AND ENERGIZING
Pastels – also called spring colors or sherbet colors – are soothing and energizing at the same time. Their fresh and natural feel brings light and softness into a room.
In addition to using pastel home elements in solid colors, think patterns, too. Perfect pastel patterns include florals, stripes, dots, birds, botanicals, latticework, or abstract designs.
IDEAS FOR ADDING PASTEL TO YOUR DECOR
Pastels work great for these home design elements:
- Paint and wall stencils
- Rugs and carpeting
- Slipcovers and upholstery
- Bedding and towels
- Table linens
- Wall coverings
- Throw pillows
Adding light-filtering sheer draperies and shades will enhance the muted and ethereal mood of a pastel interior.
Pastels work great for home accessories such as rugs and throw blankets.
