It is fashionable to display some pastel colors in its interior. Triumphant shades in the 1960s reappeared on the front of the decoration scene with the triumph of the Scandinavian style almost a decade ago. These infinitely tender shades – often immediately linked to the sweetness of childhood – have persisted in contemporary decors when Scandinavian aesthetics have lost some of their lusters.
Powder pink, sage green, sky blue, straw yellow, blue-grey … The family of pastel colors offers a multitude of possibilities and combinations to enhance rooms lacking in color, light, and tenderness. Imprinted with an undeniable softness, pastels suggest soothing and enveloping atmospheres like no other. Very popular for creating a demanding contrast with darker and more marked shades in a living room, they enhance a total look or small touches in a bedroom wishing to display a cozy atmosphere. If pastel paints and pastel wallpapers remain essential allies to integrate a colorful and nuanced touch in a room, the furniture does not make the impasse either to embellish itself with this watered-down palette. Thus in recent years, we have witnessed the undisputed success of pastel sofas and pastel headboards .
As a total look or in small touches, pastels jovially develop their ability to compose interiors where life is good. Demonstration in support with 5 pastel inspirations .
