Friday Finds – Pastels + Interior Design

  • March 20, 2015

Easter is just around the corner! I’m sure you’re reminded of it when you step into the grocery store and see all the Easter candy displays. This has got me thinking about how pastel colors have come a long way in interior design! Pastels can be used in any room in the house, not just nurseries anymore. Here are some prime examples of using pastels in your everyday home design.

From Top to Bottom,  Left to Right

1. Vtwonen incorporates pastels in an office setting which can allow for a more creative energy while working. This hue creates a separation from the mundane office that we can so commonly get used to.

2. CharlotteLovely features this cozy living room space that has a wide variety of pastel colors in it. Since they are all in the same tone, they all work together to make a harmonious space that everyone will want to be in!

3. The Sweetest Occasion shares gorgeous decorations from a chic event. Paring white and beige, with pastel colors is a great trick. This allows the pastels to sing, but will not overwhelm the senses with the addition of the neutral tones.

4. Elena’s Tea Room shows how  kitchen appliances have come a long way from white, beige and black color choices. Today there is almost every color of the rainbow available for your kitchen. Pastel colors are a wonderful way to transform your boring colored kitchen to an inspiring one.

5. House to Home provides a great example of using pastels in your bathroom. These colors create a modern country feel that’s feminine and fun. The vintage framed prints and accessories give a great retro feel to it as well.

6. Feather & Black demonstrates that a room can instantly become a relaxing environment when pastels are used. Bedrooms are ideal for using soft colored textiles–such as bedding. Using lighter shades of this color palette will make you want to escape from the world and spend time in your bedroom.


We hope that this color palette has inspired you to add some soft colors to your home design. A pop of pastel here and there can really change the energy in your home.

Have a lovely weekend!
