Decorating with Pastel Colors

Pastel colors can refresh and soften your home.

The balmy days of summer feel like the perfect time to lighten your home with pastels.

Consider these pastel hues for a home update and refreshing change: lavender, lilac, tangerine sherbet, apple green, lemon ice, sky blue, strawberry cream, soft yellow, pale green, fern green.

Pastels can make a room feel lighter, cleaner and more delicate. However, these beautiful shades are not just for the warm season; soft pastels are a look that can last all year long.

These gentle hues bring softness into a home.

Pastels, also called spring colors or sherbet colors, are soothing, but at the same time energizing. 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, birds, botanicals, lattice work, and abstract patterns too.

Pastels work great with these home design elements:

  • Paint and wall stencils
  • Rugs and carpeting
  • Slipcovers and upholstery
  • Bedding and towels
  • Table linens
  • Wall coverings
  • Throw pillows
  • And sheer draperies and shades that filter light to enhance the muted and ethereal mood of a pastel interior

Add delicate, delightful pastels to your design plan to refresh your home throughout the year.
