Usher spring into your home with an array of soft pastel shades that will really lift any living space.
From stylish chairs in mature, powdery hues to bold patterned rugs and accessories in barely-there tones, creating a fresh and airy living space has never been so simple.
What’s fantastic about this trend is that you don’t have to completely redecorate to give you space a new feel – it’s possible to achieve the look with key furniture pieces and accessories.
For a pared-back, Scandi-style look combine this gentle palette with natural finishes and tactile textures.
I love the new Charlie bedroom range from Barker and Stonehouse, which includes a beautiful bedframe, wardrobe, a variety of storage pieces and large mirror.
Made from recycled, reclaimed Oakland wood, the slatted frontage of each furniture piece really highlights the texture and colour variation in the wood, making for a modern and striking collection.
Pair with walls painted in delicate, duck egg blue and the palest-of-pale pink bedding for a calm and peaceful bedroom oasis. Scatter the bed with a few Amadeus Cushions in soft pink to complete the look.
Simple accessories like the beautiful Stone Effect Vase from Barker and Stonehouse will add interest and stop a pastel scheme from looking too saccharin-sweet.
Touches of pale grey will also provide balance; the Kartell Comeback Chair in sled grey is super-stylish and sure to become a design classic. An update on the classic Windsor chair, the glossy structure features a cocooned backrest and hexagonal rim which leads to thin arms and slim, tubular, angled legs. This chair will bring a contemporary edge to any room and comes in a variety of pastel colours.
For those devoted to colour, an addition such as the Criss Cross Shelving Unit in pastel blue will bring a fun splash to a space. The contemporary style and shape of the piece is really unique and will look great dressed with your favourite books and ornaments.
If you don’t want to completely redecorate, add a few key accessories to add spring zing to your home.
The Serengeti rug in pale green ticks off both the pastel and geometric trends – and its classic pattern will add drama and style.
So whether you go for baby blues or decide on pastel pinks, greens or yellows – enjoy updating your home with spring’s hottest hues.
