Do you shy away from pastel colours, because you are unsure if your home will appear too soft and unsophisticated?

Instead of worrying about the colours, choose furniture that you are familiar with. It can be your sofa and end tables paired with hints of stripes, polka or even floral pastel fabrics.

You can even have plain upholstery fabric to have new pastel-enhanced interiors.

As shown in this design by Renozone, the beautiful pastel orange upholstery of the sofa creates the focal point of this open living area. It looks so unique and adds instant charm to this living space.
