Spring Decor Trend Pastels
We turned the clocks ahead an hour. The first official day of Spring is just about week away. Are you ready for Spring? Season change is a great time to refresh your home decor and to try out new home decor trends. One Spring decor trend for 2014 is pastels. Take your color inspiration from nature. Spring hyacinths offer a beautiful color palette in varied shades of lavender, pink and baby blue. Pastels are light, bright and airy. They are unassuming colors that pair well with neutrals. Here are some of my favorite home interiors using pastels.
The pale blue walls in this living room are tranquil and soothing. Tone on tone color is one popular way to interpret this Spring decor trend. Make sure you don’t get too “matchy-matchy” when trying this. Monochromatic color schemes will fall flat without some variation in tones to add interest. Here the bold blue pillows and brighter tones in the artwork pop and the pastel blue becomes a neutral.
While pink is not for everyone, it is no longer relegated to the nursery and little girl’s rooms. A soft pink wall is very European and is beautiful if you are going for an “old world” feeling in your space. Pink is also perfect for “shabby chic” spaces.
Coral is a modern pastel that designers are using in offices and powder baths. When paired with bright white, black and grey, coral is very elegant and not a Spring decor trend that you’ll get tired of after the season is over.
If pastel paint is too much of a change, why not just change out your throw pillows? Here the designer added a touch of whimsy and lots of life with scattered throw pillows.
Baby blues don’t just say Springtime but also call to mind beach waves, the sun and sand. The blues in this living room pop against the neutral sofa. Zebra pillows are a fun mix of pattern.
Spring decor trends are just one way to embrace the season change and to let in the light. I think pastels are such versatile and happy colors that you’ll love them the whole year through. What trends have caught your eye this season?
