how to: pretty pastel interiors
Pastel shades are versatile, full of personality, and can inject colour into an interior even on the greyest and gloomiest of days. Pastels are instantly uplifting due to their white undertone and subtle colour pigments. Read our guide for some inspiration on how to use pastels in your home…

This year. Pantone, the world’s leading colour experts, opted for not one, but two, pastel shades: Rose Quartz and Serenity as their colour of the year for 2016.
The colour trend is only set to get even more popular. We love this image below, which draws upon Pantone’s colour announcement and creates a sophisticated and vibrant space by using pastel pinks and blues on the walls.
Our very own Whitby looks lovely in Blush pure Belgian linen, a pastel pink fabric that sits comfortably amongst the other grey tones around the room.
Similarly our Aissa corner sofa draws upon Patone’s other colour choice, Serenity, to create this sophisticated yet laid back living room. Aissa’s size and comfort make it the perfect place for the whole family to pile upon on a lazy Sunday morning.
If you’re not committed to redecorating an entire room with pastel shades, why not let scatter cushions do the work for you. Pastel scatter cushions are an easy way to inject a pop of colour on top of a neutral coloured sofa and can be swapped for moodier and darker tones when the winter weather sets in. Alternatively, choose pastel artwork or accessories for your walls which are guaranteed to liven up any living room.
Alternatively, make a pastel hue the statement colour within the room. We love the mint shade of the doorway in the image below as it has a lot of impact but doesn’t overwhelm the small space. We wouldn’t mind waking up here every morning!
