Color Crush: Spring Pastels

Bring spring inside your home with pastel colors. Pastels are traditionally a more feminine and are associated to a shabby chic look, but the looks below show the versatility of looks pastel colors can bring to your home. Take a look at five rooms outfitted in lovely pastel shades.


Living Room: Shabby chic, sophisticated and modern are all different looks you can achieve in your living room with pastel shades. Dusty pinks and lavenders look girly while light grey paired with lilacs are more sophisticated and cool. A punchy peach Acapulco chair is a great example of a modern use of pastel in a room.

Kitchen: Kitchens with large windows benefit from a buttery yellow color scheme which will reflect light and warmth. Tiles are also a nice way to use a refreshing mint green in the kitchen. If you are looking for a smaller color commitment, paint the back of your dining chairs in two or three complementing pastel colors for a fun look.

Outdoor: Pastels will add a nice touch of color to your outdoor space, whether you are having a BBQ or lounging by yourself. Pink pillows are an easy way to update an outdoor couch but if you are ready for a DIY project, try painting your porch light blue. Don’t forget your pastel Adirondack chairs and throws!

Bathroom: Relaxing in your bathroom is all you’ll want to do after updating your décor with shades of pastel. Sea glass blue and mint green will give your bathroom a spa-like look and ambiance while a coral shade will awaken your mornings.

Kids Bedrooms: Pastels can be commonly found in nurseries but also look great in kids and teenagers rooms. Light shades are equally soothing in a nursery for a newborn and his tired parents. Light greys will look great in a boys room without being girly. Pair pastels with neons for your teenagers work station for an upbeat look.
