Pretty Pastels

Spring is here and pastels are back. There’s something about these delicious candy colours that always make a space feel so calming and I can never tire of them. You can either be daring and pair two or three colours together or use it with neutrals like white for a subtle crisp feel. Whichever direction you wish to take with this rend, you can’t really go wrong.

A calming reading nook in different shades of pastel pink and blue give a restful feminine feel.

These lovely Alice ceramic tableware from Feinedinge would make an excellent addition to a Spring tablescape.

To add a touch of warmth , opt for a shade darker than one of the pastels you have chosen as an accent. For example, in this space a throw in an orange and grey colourway lends a cosy feel but at the same time doesn’t throw off the design scheme.

Bring back hints of beige and taupe into your scheme this season. Team it with dusky pinks or greys for a truly sophisticated look.

So what do you think of this trend? Is it a nay or aye? I look forward to seeing your comments.
