I would say that when it comes to colour I have a fairly clear style. Give me bright, and lots of it. Although that would clearly be overwhelming in decor form, for the everyday backdrop to my life, I’m often drawn to more soothing palettes, more recently adding pops of colour to my neutral grey home.
What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to were subtle pastel shades. For me, they hark back to the eighties, when every well decorated house had each room in a different shade of Dulux ‘A hint of’, in cornflower blue, and similar insipid shades.
Just before Christmas however, I noticed a trend in the interiors images I was pinning. Soft shades of blush, rose and shell pink, with muted tones and textural elements drew me in with their elegant yet modern feel.
Alongside a predominance of pinks, restful greens appeared and my favourites combined greys and rich metallic shades of brass and copper too.
As it is such a departure from my usual style, I thought I would share some of my favourite examples of this new trend and see what you thought. Can you see pastel shades in your home?
Let me know if you’re inspired by these images or if in fact you have already decorated in pastel shades?
