A pinch of candy


For a while, pastels were mainly used in kid's bedrooms but in modern times, this perception has shifted dramatically and has now transformed the interior areas by completely contemporising it with the use of soft pastel colours, bold accents and the odd splash of gold!

With today’s current geo trend, and they’re increasingly combined in unusual vignettes, often with Scandinavian style. But don't think that one should only use pastel colours on our walls because for many that is a huge step. The twist: interesting choices, such as combining pastels with interesting patterns and other pastels. This new take on a classic colour palette has been fabulously dreamy.  

One can introduce soft shades of materials such as pillows and bedding coming with vivid shades and combinations of delectable decor accessories. Tableware has become nothing short of delicious. Glazed porcelain makes a big statement with a simple form and a contrasting shade of white as well as dressing up your table with a striking table cloth in various shades of candy.

Also look at adding pastels accents such as pendent lighting, painting shelving and cabinetry. If you someone who is a bit daring, try adding a pastel fridge for that pop of colour or a beautiful pattern rug in your living area.

Today’s post finds prove there’s strength in pastels. The key is to use them in unexpected ways. So let's breathe some new life into this classic palette!
