Beautiful Designs with Pastels

Written by 

If you hear “pastels,” you might think “boring,” but that doesn't necessarily have to be true. As evidenced by this design featured by Ideas to Steal, when done with a good eye and smart hand, pastels can be modern and beautiful.

If you want to add pastels to a room in your home (or carry it through the house like in the picture!), here are a few tips for using pastels in your own home:

Tip #1: Neutral Walls, Pastel Elements. Pastel walls can feel dated, so if you're looking to go modern, try neutral walls and then use pastel to accessorize. You might try a pastel rug with a pattern, furniture, and art pieces. 

Tip #2: Mix Your Neutrals. Combine pure white with beige, cream, and light gray to create a canvas on which the pastels can pop. If you stick with solid white, the room could come off feeling stark or cold,, so break up the white with other complementary neutrals.

Tip #3: Choose an Accent Color. You can tie all of your pastel together by carrying at least one of the colors throughout the room (or rooms). Mint green is a popular pastel color this year, so try adding a painting with an influence of green, mint green throw pillows, or transparent green light fixtures. 

The key is to keep the room clean and simple. If you make it too busy with pastels, it will look forced and older. Keep it modern with well-placed pastels, and your house will definitely not look boring!
