How to Use Pastels in Your Interior Design Theme

Pastels are the latest and greatest interior design trend. From the much-beloved millennial pink to blush blue, it might be time to consider incorporating a bit of color into your interior design theme. Here’s how you can use pastels to spruce up your home.


Statement Furniture

Make a statement by placing pastel statement furniture pieces throughout your living space. This soft blue Wilshire Chair is both elegant and comfortable. The lavender Bedford Avenue Fenimore Street Upholstered Dining Chair is also an excellent, soft colorful addition to any living, dining or bedroom.

Kitchen appliances in pastel colors are all the rage right now and may be to thank for the pastel design comeback. They provide a vintage vibe harkening back to the 1950s and 1960s. This baby blue eggbeater seen on Instagram will make any kitchen seem vibrant, beautiful and happy.

Accent Rugs

If you want to incorporate pastels into your home but aren’t ready to go all out, try adding a rug to serve as a small, but powerfully effective pop of color. The Anzio Rug provides a nice hint of color and brightness to any room. Its stripes also possess a nice texture that will create a cozy atmosphere in your home. The Kendall Blue Lagoon Rug will be a lovely addition for those looking to capitalize on the pastel trend while still bringing out the cooler tones in a room.

Pastel Walls

Want to go all out in pastels? Paint the town lavender by applying a fresh coat of pastel paint to the walls in one of your rooms. Be sure to choose a paint color and room wisely and try to play more off of your own tastes rather than current trends. This will ensure that you don’t regret the decision to paint the walls pastel later on. Additionally, you can consider painting just one wall to accent a more minimalistic room.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
