How To Add Pastel to a Room | Interiors


We love pastel! Used properly it can lighten a room and add character. Using pastels with neutrals can create a beautiful light room. Interiors can also look gorgeous with a mix of pastels. Lilacs, blues, greens, yellows, pinks and more. Colours that can be used in any room in the house. Here are a few ways to add pastels to a room.

Ceramics and Vases

Some of our favourite interior accessories are the pastel vases and jugs, handmade in Leicestershire. A lovely way to add pastel to a room, without breaking the bank. Vases can be added to any room of the house, we love them in the centre of a table or placed on a windowsill in a bedroom.

Pastel Soft Furnishings

Add pastel cushions, throws or rugs to a room to add a little bit of pastel, but not overload. A few cushions on a sofa or bed in matching or complimentary pastels can add light and fun to a room. Alternatively pastel rugs or floor cushions can have the same effect.

Get Your Paint On

There are some stunning pastel paints available Whole rooms, focus walls or even furniture. Adding a little bit of positivity to a room. The pastel colours can make a space feel larger and lighter than dark colours. Choose contrasting patterned furnishings to add texture.

A pastel sofa is quite a bold move, much harder to change (but not impossible) if you fall out of love with it. But a pastel sofa or bed can be stunning and pull a room together, making it a wonderful space to live in.

We love Loaf! This Furnishings company started in London and all their sofas are made in the UK. Have a look at their Dixie Sofa below or one of their gorgeous beds at the top of the page.
