Do you know what the most soothing colors on the entire color wheel actually are? The pastel hues that come at the bottom half. They are the lighter versions of their darker counterparts and their milky countenance has the ability to make any space seem like the height of elegant chic. So further, we’ll be looking at 5 awesome ways you can use to make your home a pastel haven!
1. For the love of wall tiles
Disjointed wall tiles in unique colors are one of the greatest way you can introduce pastel accents in your interior designs. If you do not find any large tiles that are attractive enough or appeal to you, then look in mosaic section! You’ll definitely find something that’s in some amazing multi-colored shades of pastel and you can arrange the mosaics in some customized patterns in the process.
2. Pastel woodwork
Who says that that pastels can always be presented through wall paint? That’s not the case at all. These days, you can go the extra mile and opt for pastel hued furniture. Whether you go for chalk paint or deco paint depends completely on the type of furniture that you’re working with. The kitchen island in this image is an awesome example of flawlessly emulating pastels in the woodwork and furniture.
3. Natures pastels
When you feel like you’re done with artificial pastel accents, it’s time to turn to nature. There are tons of indoor plants in a vibrant shade of green that can be used as a complementary accent to make your interiors seem chic and sophisticated. You can simply hand them up by the hooks on the ceiling to get the best and most whimsical results!
4. Throw pillows and accessories
A small but super effective way to introduce pastel accents in your interior designs is by using decorative baubles, throw pillows, artfully draped shrugs and even strategically placed cutlery. This image shows a great example of how you can balance out all of these various aspects in a neat, coordinated manner. The colorful pastel hued pillows, the baby blue and pink mugs, the backdrop of colorful wall tiles – they all deliver a dreamy, whimsical aesthetic!
5. Managing the color palate
The thing about using pastel hues in your interior designs is that you need to be really clever about managing the rest of your color scheme. You need to make the pastels the highlight of your whole design, so don’t use too many bold colors along with it. Maybe a splash of a white backdrop, but nothing too vibrant or striking!
